Mecalac, a renowned manufacturer of construction equipment, made significant waves at the recent ARA Show by unveiling its AT1050 telescopic wheel loader to the North American market.

While the model itself isn’t new to the manufacturer, its introduction to this region marks a pivotal moment, as it brings forth a fresh dimension of versatility tailored explicitly for North American needs. With a unique blend of features, the AT1050 promises to elevate functionality across a spectrum of applications, ranging from construction to landscaping and beyond.

The AT1050 proudly carries Mecalac’s hallmark versatility, offering operators the agility of an articulated loader merged with the robust functionality of a rigid chassis front loader. This seamless integration empowers operators to tackle tasks like material handling and loading with precision, catering comprehensively to the demands of construction, landscaping, recycling, and composting sectors.

A standout feature of the AT1050 is its rigid frame design, ensuring a stable center of gravity even when the boom is fully extended. Ryan Carter, regional sales manager at Mecalac North America, emphasised this stability, highlighting that unlike articulated loaders, the AT1050 maintains its full capacity without compromise, thanks to its all-wheel steer configuration.

Operators will find the AT1050 a joy to maneuver, facilitated by its three steering modes. Whether opting for two-wheel steer for high-speed travel, four-wheel steer for negotiating tight turns, or crab steer for diagonal movement, the loader offers exceptional maneuverability within confined spaces, boasting a single movement radius of 12 feet, 2 inches.

Mecalac’s goal with the AT1050 was to seamlessly merge the reach of a telehandler with the operational prowess of a wheel loader, thereby optimising operations and reducing mobilisation costs on bustling job sites. The machine’s telescopic boom, coupled with a hydraulic quick coupler for swift attachment changes, enhances efficiency and versatility across various tasks.

Powered by a robust 75-horsepower Tier 4 Final Deutz engine, the AT1050 ensures optimal performance without the need for complex emissions control systems. This translates to simplified maintenance requirements, further bolstering its appeal to operators and fleet managers alike. Peter Bigwood, general manager for Mecalac North America, underscored the company’s commitment to durability, user-friendliness, and maintenance ease, solidifying the AT1050’s position as the preferred choice among rental clientele and industry professionals.

In addition to its operational prowess, the AT1050 prioritises operator comfort and safety, featuring a monoboom design for enhanced visibility of work tools, along with a panoramic roof and tinted windows for optimal visibility of the worksite.

With its debut at the ARA Show, the Mecalac AT1050 sets a new benchmark for telescopic wheel loaders in the North American market, offering a compelling blend of versatility, performance, and user-centric design.
