Mecalac, a leading global designer, manufacturer and distributor of compact construction equipment for urban environments, offers its award-winning MWR Series of wheeled excavators to the North American market. Consisting of three models – the 7MWR, 9MWR and 11MWR – the series features a range of benefits to help meet the needs of operations in the construction, landscaping and forestry industries, as well as municipalities and utility construction. The MWR Series of wheeled excavators are purpose-built to allow for maximum maneuverability in tight working areas, offering the flexibility and versatility of a skid steer or compact track loader in one machine and delivering higher speed and mobility than tracked excavators.

Each of the three models in the MWR series offers speed in a compact footprint. The smallest of the three, the 7MWR, offers variable speed between 0 and 19 mph. The 9MWR and 11MWR provide contractors standard travel speeds between 0 and 12 mph, with an option for enhanced speed up to 22 mph on the 9MWR and up to 19 mph on the 11MWR. The speed in combination with the versatility of these machines provides operations with substantial benefits in productivity and efficiency by significantly reducing travel time on the job site and between jobs.

The MWR series machines have a center of gravity that is 20% lower than competitive models while still maintaining a high ground clearance. The unique combination ensures exceptional stability even while operating off-road and on slopes and simultaneously reduces the risk of undercarriage damage from obstacles on the ground. With four-wheel steering, the MWR series machines are incredibly maneuverable and feature a turn radius 2.5 times more compact than a traditional wheeled excavator.
