By Leila Steed12 May 2021
Mecalac has added a new Stage V compliant cabbed site dumper model to its MDX equipment range for the European market.
The 3.5MDX dumper has an operating weight of 2.9 tonnes and at 3.8m long and 1.9m wide, was described by Mecalac as being highly manoeuvrable and suitable for use in confined spaces.
Designed to be “rental tough”, the new 3.5MDX has a maximum payload of 3.5 tonnes and is powered by a Kubota D1803 1.8L turbocharged diesel engine that can provide up to 250.5Nm of torque at 1600rpm.
An integrated diesel particulate filter (DPF) and diesel oxidation catalyst mean the dumper, which can reach a maximum speed of 12.4mph (20kph), offers low emissions and optimised fuel consumption.
