REVOLUTION

Overview

Simple to use, yet highly sophisticated, REVOLUTION blows away outdated and generic control systems - delivering outstanding one-handed control and the best feature set in the industry.

REVOLUTION is a state-of-the-art multi-function reach arm control system that enables users to tackle a huge variety of work tasks; offers huge strides in productivity, safety and reliability; and enables precise fingertip control for outstanding manoeuvrability.

McConnel’s REVOLUTION is the first control package ever developed which gives operators full proportional control of up to eight different functions, as well as two further bang-bang functions. It also comes with McConnel’s acclaimed Easy Drive System, boosting safety and increasing verge-mowing speeds by up to 4.5 times the norm.

REVOLUTION DESIGN CONCEPT

The design concept for McConnel’s next-generation control system:

Key Features

  • Full colour display - The 5.5 inch high-visibility display is the best on the market and is unique for its size and quality. The screen can be mounted around the cab and provides at-a-glance information on active functions, power output, job hours, warning alarms and servicing alerts.
  • Intuitive software – McConnel’s design philosophy is to take the complicated and make it simple and nowhere is this more evident than in the software driving the system. Customers can access real-time performance information on everything from power output to warning systems as well as checking service schedules and adjusting control sensitivity settings.
  • Ergonomic joystick – Developed in-house exclusively for Power Arms, the system allows full proportional control of up to eight different functions from the joystick and full one-handed control of even the most complex operations.
  • Fully customisable controls – REVOLUTION makes it easy for customers to customise the joystick buttons to a variety of different functions, allowing you to create a configuration for your personal preferences or for a specific task. You can even switch between configurations at the touch of a button – giving you full control.
  • McConnel’s Easy Drive System (EDS) - incorporated into REVOLUTION and allows operators to work up to 4.5 times faster than on machines without it. EDS automatically adjusts the cutting attachment to precisely match the contours of the ground. It also saves fuel consumption by allowing you to work up to three gears higher than rival systems.
