Mecalac / Terex TA3 – Product Overview

Designed for the small to medium job site the Mecalac TA3 (formerly Terex) offers versatility for your material movement. With a skip payload of 3000kg, choose between straight tip skip for bulk material movement or the 180 degree power swivel skip which allows precision placement of loads to either side of the machine. The optional hydrostatic transmission delivers smooth and uninterrupted power for the operator. Simple user friendly controls help all operators adapt quickly.

Innovation As Standard

Robust, reliable and rental tough, Mecalac site dumpers have been developed using more than 60 years’ design and manufacturing expertise.

Featuring state-of-the-art engine technology to meet the latest emissions compliance, each model delivers power, torque and exceptional performance for greater operator productivity and profitability.

Designed with the user in mind, Mecalac site dumpers boast class-leading skip strengths, heavy-duty chassis designs and user-friendly controls. It’s easy to see why each model leads its class in on-site earthmoving and tipping.

First-to-market technology additions – including Autoshift transmission, Stop/Start Control, Hazard Detection and Capture telematics – complete the package. From one to ten-tonne payloads, Mecalac’s extensive model line-up has the perfect unit for every application

Power Swivel Site Dumpers

Mecalac Power Swivel site dumpers are the ideal solution for more challenging jobs. Allowing the load to be rotated before being tipped, Power Swivel technology allows the operator to work within a confined site area.

With payload options ranging between two to six-tonnes, there’s a perfect Power Swivel model for every application. High quality slew ring bearings deliver smooth and effective operation – ensuring precise placement of loads.

Featuring state-of-the-art operator technologies, including Start/Stop Control, Autoshift, Capture and Hazard Detection, Power Swivel site dumpers set the standards for equipment innovation and performance.

All models are equipped with Tier 4-Final engines, ensuring they meet the highest global emissions standards without the need for exhaust after-treatment.

Meeting outstanding safety standards

All Power Swivel site dumpers feature a heavy-duty locking device, which keeps the skip facing forward while on the move – just one of the many features that ensure each model meets the highest level of on-site health and safety compliance.

Intelligent design means hose routings and hydraulics are protected from damage, without compromising on routine maintenance access.

Key model benefits:

  • Efficient operation
  • Improved performance
  • Simple operation
  • Unrivalled reliability
  • Longer service intervals
  • Outstanding fuel economy

Making maintenance easy

Alongside boasting state-of-the-art product design and first-to-market technology innovation, all Mecalac site dumpers feature superb service access from ground level to ensure simple and time-efficient routine equipment maintenance.

The chassis and engine canopies are designed to give maximum access to all service areas, while engine panels are mounted on heavy-duty, lockable hinges for added safety benefits.

Meeting outstanding safety standards

On models with payloads from six-tonnes upwards, Mecalac site dumpers feature a suite of state-of-the-art technologies to deliver outstanding results.

Stop/Start Control has been designed to improve on-site safety, minimise fuel consumption and increase service intervals. The new system will automatically start and stop the engine in predetermined conditions. Tested duty cycles have shown hundreds of pounds of fuel savings per year, as well as extending service intervals by 24 weeks (on a typical 500-hour maintenance schedule).

Developed in-house by Mecalac’s engineering department, Autoshift uses torque demand to guide gear changes. In challenging and demanding conditions – such as steep gradients and high payloads – Autoshift enables the transmission to hold lower gears for longer, providing torque, power and drive when it’s needed most.

Bringing award-winning automotive technology to the construction site, Mecalac’s Hazard Detection solution uses a microwave radar to provide flawless obstacle detection.

Capture is Mecalac’s innovative telematics solution, allowing hire firms and site managers to monitor unit location, distance travelled and hours completed each day. Integration with the ECU offers access to real-time fuel consumption data logs, service planning functionality and geo-fencing reporting to within three metres.
