Our policy is super simple. Our 1yr/1000hr warranty is strictly a Parts Only Warranty (see Warranty page for full details). We send the replacement part to the client at no cost. Any other involved costs are the responsibility of the customer. This among other factors enables us to offer our machines at a greatly reduced price below our competitors.
Our machines are not less expensive because they are of a lesser quality or because we do not provide TOP quality customer service. They're lower because our business model is different than the rest. MCM's prices are lower because of our Parts Only Warranty. They are lower because we don’t have high overheads from showrooms. MCM is keeping up with the changing tides. Industry is changing and the internet and overseas manufacturing is responsible. More and more clients are buying directly from the manufacturer/supplier. MCM identified a crucial shift in the way people buy & we adapted to it! Our chosen Manufacturers are now of a quality level where they are reliable, efficient and perform very well if not better than our competition like A**** and M****O**. That is why MCM are the Exclusive Distributors of CL-Loaders in the entire Sub-Saharan Africa and USA. In the near future we hope to expand that to even more countries around the world.
MCM is a South African company that uses plants all over the world pairing with the major brands with engines like Yanmar, Kubota, Perkins, Kohler and Briggs & Stratton. Combined with hydraulic components and pumps from Eaton, PWC, Hansa, Husco and more to assemble the machine according to MCMs specifications. They have been proven for years to be strong and reliable in the toughest conditions of Australia, Europe and of course Africa. This year they decided to bring Americans a tough and dependable unit at a significant cost savings then competitors. They use various handpicked assembly plants that they have ensured are in compliance with their quality control standards. The machines are currently assembled in hand picked factories in China (just like nearly every other name brand item (iPhone for example) that MCM has been using for years. The future plans include an assembly plant in South Africa where the main company is located, and move distribution into North and South America. The items are not in stock and will be built upon order. This ensures the user receives the latest upgrades on the parts, (for example the video of me replacing the new upgraded starter relay) would not be necessary as they only put the up to date parts in during the build.
MCM uses engines from Yanmar, Kubota, Kohler, Honda, Perkins etc. and pairs up all the other components worldwide amongst the best in the particular field.
We have local support of parts since most of the engines are also used by other common machines in the US, allowing local parts that are compatible with MCM machines. (Yanmar is JohnDeere for example). A***t and M****one also have very similar components in the articulated wheel loader world. We can receive a factory direct part in about a week timeframe which we have tested and proven to be consistent. I personally have worked on the machines and if you can turn a wrench, you are able to maintain the machine without any issues.
The hydraulics, quick hitch plate (common to the mini machines) and attachments are also a standard configuration and can use and be used on other machines with flat face connectors. We even have adaptor plates that allow any of the b**cat attachments to be used on our machines as well.
Individuals who decide to purchase machines directly from suppliers often are enticed by a price too good to be true, only to find out they've been suckered in by low prices that get thousands added to when it times to receive a actual quote. If they do buy it, they receive a neglected product, or lower quality parts, old engines, follow up communication problems and the list goes on. The reason behind this is the companies know most of these clients are once-off clients halfway around the world and only care about receiving the payment. How well do you think that warranty they told you about will really work out for you? They don’t advise the customer of the regulations and additional duties and fees associated with imports. Things most customers won't realize until the machine makes it to the US, where it can't clear customs, until thousands more are paid or worse becomes Seized by them altogether. Once that is in the US port, it becomes your Issue, not theirs. These are just some of the things the customer never even was told about. That's the problem. Solution? MCM. We are proud of our products. Manufactured in excellent proven factories, tested in the harshest conditions of Africa and improved again and again by our international team.
I have a client in Cape Town who rents out a fleet of A**** and M****O** loaders on various job sites. We did a demo of the CL30 for him and he was very impressed. Here are the advantages I can remember that he highlighted above his A**** and M****O** loaders that he pointed out:
- The body is a strong fiberglass compared to plastic.
- The attachments are 6mm thick instead of 4mm thick.
- The quick hitch attachment pin system is stronger.
- The hydraulics are compatible with other manufactures, allowing use of existing attachments.
Service Dealers will sometimes give a customer delayed wait times or availability, poor service, ridiculously high transport fees, and don’t always keep stock of parts, one thing they will surely give you is highly inflated prices as those fancy showrooms cost money. MCM USA can approve a warranty parts only claim as quickly as any other company. With MCM USA you have the benefit of using your own existing mechanic or even working on it yourself and still keeping the warranty! Some of our government and business customers have workshops with their own mechanics like Plants, Rental Companies, Farmers etc, saving them time and money by not having to load transport and wait for the machine to be serviced. Your MCM machine can be serviced when its needed and most convenient for you, getting your machine back up and running in the most efficient use of time. Our machines are fairly straight-forward machines that don't require computing technology to analyze or fix. They don't need to be repaired or serviced by a specialist and can be serviced by anyone with mechanical knowledge. MCM USA will be releasing several “How To” videos to aid customers in servicing their machines.
MCM USA is committed to offering all customers the same factory direct product pricing.
