MVA vehicles are highly adaptable and can easily and quickly replace two or three of your current vehicles.

The Mecfor team of experts can help you put together a compelling business case, and lay out the financial justification for your investment. They will also be happy to provide references from satisfied customers.

Hydraulic and electrical power at your fingertips

The MVA is powered by a diesel engine coupled to a hydrostatic transmission, offering constant torque with unlimited speed variation on two of the four wheels. The vehicle is built around a central articulation that offers the operator great flexibility when carrying loads or performing precise furnace operations like loading, tending or cleaning. The comfortable operator's environment offers unmatched visibility, safety features, and state-of-the-art controls to maximize productivity. The vehicle is also equipped with a Sauer-Danfoss Plus+1 controller that gathers and stores vital operational and diagnostic information.

MVA vehicles are built with Mecfor's “QuicKonnect” system, designed to support its hydraulically powered modular tools.
