Mecalac unveils AS Series Swing Loaders to U.S. with 180-degree arm swivel

At ConExpo 2020, Mecalac unveiled its latest product for the U.S. market, its AS Series of swing loaders.

Unlike traditional and articulated wheel loaders, the swing loaders’ arm and bucket are positioned to the side, allowing for 180-degree arm swivel in either direction. In four-wheel-steering mode, the company says, the swing loaders need 20 percent less space to perform a complete rotation than a conventional loader.
