New MEC boom and scissor lifts

29. September 2017 | Comments (0)

California based boom and scissor lift manufacturer MEC has announced two new products, built for the company in China.

The 19ft Micro 19 slab scissor lift joins the current 13ft 1330SE Micro scissor lift, and includes all of the same features, including full direct electric drive for longer battery life. Overall length is just 1.5 metre – or 1.4 metres with entry ladder removed. Overall width is 810mm and platform capacity 226kg, while the machine weighs 1,220kg including the 600mm rollout deck extension and automatic pothole protection.

The second new product is a high specification 45ft Rough Terrain articulated boom lift-the 45-AJ. The Kubota diesel powered boom lift, offers 360 degree continuous slew, solid rough terrain tyres, a triple entry platform with swing gate and oscillating front axle. Outreach is 7.6 metres, with an Up & Over clearance height of 7.5 metres. Maximum platform capacity is 227kg.

Both units are almost certainly built for MEC by Dingli in China to Mec’s detailed design changes to existing Dingli products, in order to deliver a cost effective product with the MEC ‘bells and whistles’

President David said: “The Micro 19 in combination to our 1330SE provides our customers with the height options they need in the tight spaces where the Micro class delivers. A 19 foot class machine that can fit in elevators opens up many new opportunities.”

Gary Crook, vice president engineering added: “As with most of our new product development projects, we started out by listening to our customer’s needs. Following the phenomenal reception of the 1330 from our customers, we reacted to their request for a machine of similar dimensions that could satisfy the applications traditional 19 foot machines achieve. Today’s construction business pack more utilities, safety and security systems into new buildings and in the maintenance of existing buildings so we felt they needed an ultra-compact machine to fit those tight work areas.”

“With our 45-AJ, we were looking to expand our boom line with a product that demonstrates our values for full-featured, rugged, simple and reliable boom lifts. We believe this machine delivers those values and provides best in class productivity with the continuous rotation. We are excited to continue the expansion of our boom line.”

Vertikal Comment

Where these two are made is not yet clear, but you can see that the latest units products offer buyers an interesting alternative The 19 is a little heavy for some elevators, but its diminutive overall dimensions will allow it to fit. The direct electric drive will also be much appreciated. While the boom lift appears a bit ‘Me Too’ ish – the company should do very well with both of these new products.
