Mecalac Construction Equipment UK has appointed NCD Equipment to its national dealer network. From its site in Battlesbridge, NCD will be responsible for retailing Mecalac’s highly-acclaimed MWR, MCR and 15MC range of excavators across Suffolk, Norfolk, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire.
Established in 2014, NCD originally specialised in tree shears, but has rapidly grown and now sells a wide variety of equipment for professionals operating across the forestry, agriculture and utility industries. The business provides customers with market-leading products, supported with exceptional customer service and personal support.
Paul Macpherson, Commercial Director at Mecalac Construction Equipment UK, commented: “We are thrilled to be appointing NCD Equipment as a specialist distributor of Mecalac excavators. Engineered for rugged and compact performance, our excavators hold a unique place in the market.
“Providing UK professionals with state-of-the-art equipment is only made possible through the efforts of our dedicated dealer network. Now, with the addition of Nick and the NCD team, customers throughout East Anglia, Bedfordshire and Northamptonshire have ready access to Mecalac excavators alongside trusted servicing and support.”
With extensive first-hand experience working as a contractor, Nick Dinsdale, Founder and Managing Director of NCD Equipment, understands the crucial role that quality equipment can play in both safety and profitability.
Speaking about the new partnership, he said: “Working with Mecalac has given our customers access to excavators from a world leader in compact equipment. With the brand gaining significant traction in the UK, we look forward to playing a key role in further driving market share.”
NCD Equipment will retail Mecalac’s three unique excavator portfolios – the MCR crawler skid excavators, MWR wheeled excavators and the 15MC compact crawler excavator. Designed to maximise operator performance and efficiency, their next-generation design and class-leading performance are renowned worldwide.
Mecalac MCR – Innovative, productive and stylish, the MCR excavators can switch from compact tracked excavator (with a top speed of 10 km/h) to loader (with 360° rotation capability) within seconds. Available in three model variations – 6MCR (0.49m2 bucket capacity), 8MCR (0.53m2 bucket capacity) and 10MCR (0.75m2 bucket capacity) – each unit is powered by a 55kW engine.
Mecalac MWR – Perfectly blending stability and compactness, the MWR wheeled excavators adopt an innovative wheeled chassis. Four models are available – 7MWR, 9MWR, 11MWR and 15MWR, with different boom options. Incorporating a closed hydrostatic transmission system, each model is fast and nimble, with both two and four-wheel steer (including a crab option) available. Alongside boasting enhanced stability and safety, including direct entry into the cab, the MWR wheeled excavator range can be refuelled from the floor.
Mecalac 15MC – Mecalac’s 15MC tracked crawler-excavator has a tail swing radius of only 1,570mm and an unbeatable front radius of only 1,420mm. In addition, it can operate within a single traffic lane. Capable of full rotation in less than a 3,140mm space envelope, clever kinematics ensures all functions can be performed in the tightest parameters. Alongside delivering outstanding power (100kW engine, 500Nm torque and a max pump flow of 270 l/min), the model’s clever design allows diesel and Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) refuelling from the ground, which is unique in the marketplace.
