Mecalac has designed the Revotruck, a unique dumper that combines cab rotation with exceptional off-road capabilities.

Already the winner of five awards, including the prestigious Red Dot Design Awards “Best of the Best”, the Revotruck builds on the success of the dumper range to offer increases in safety.

Although dumpers are an effective means of transporting large quantities of materials, they also account for almost a third of all transport-related accidents on construction sites. The frequency of incidents is particularly high on machines weighing more than 6 tonnes, where the accident rate is even more worrying because the quantity of material being transported in the skip obscures visibility as it moves.

To minimise this risk, Mecalac’s research and development team carried out an in-depth analysis of worksites, identifying visibility, stability and manoeuvrability as major issues. These observations were the driving force behind the creation of the Revotruck, an innovative concept developed from scratch to proactively address these challenges.

It is the first dumper to feature a rotating cab, including the cockpit. Offering 360-degree visibility, the Revotruck revolutionises the way you work with a dumper, raising operator safety and comfort to a new level.

The five main unique criteria

  • Visibility: 360° view. The rotating cab offers optimum visibility in all directions, allowing drivers to maintain maximum concentration on their work and their environment while maintaining an ideal, comfortable position.
  • Accessibility: the revolution from all sides. The cab has four large access points at each corner of the driver’s cab, ensuring safe, effortless access whatever the orientation of the cab.
  • Mobility: A revolution in its structure. The rigid chassis – which is intrinsically safer than an articulated chassis because the support points remain constant – is complemented by four equal sized wheels. It has a switchable steering mode (2-wheel steering, 4-wheel steering, crab steering), enabling it to work with agility in confined spaces and with a turning radius halved compared with conventional articulated dumper trucks.
  • Ergonomics: rotation at the touch of a button. With drivers at the heart of the Revotruck’s design, we have made it possible to rotate the cab at the touch of a button. As a result, drivers maintain correct posture at all times and avoid back problems by eliminating working positions where the back and neck are twisted.
  • Stability: the power of agility. Featuring a rigid 4-wheel steering chassis inspired by hill tractors, the Revotruck offers exceptional stability. The central link between the two parts of the chassis offers up to 20° of oscillation. The two oscillating parts of the chassis follow the contours of the ground independently, ensuring stability and permanent traction on all types of terrain.

Two sizes are available: the Revotruck 6 tons and the Revotruck 9 tons.

“We are proud to have created this revolutionary dumper, which embodies our expertise and the Group’s innovation. In addition to its advanced technology, it provides concrete solutions to the challenges encountered in the field, illustrating our ability to understand our users and convert their needs and challenges into tangible solutions,” explains Alexandre MARCHETTA, Chairman of the Mecalac Group.
