MEC Aerial Work Platforms launched its newest innovation in boom lifts, drawing on the success of its micro scissor line. MEC engineers were challenged to develop a better value solution for the thousands of construction jobs that are lower than 40 feet. The 34-J changes the paradigm on ROI for lower height projects.
The smallest telescopic booms available in today’s market offer 46-foot working height, which is often more machine than is necessary for the job. MEC introduces the new 34-J diesel telescopic boom as a better value solution for construction applications up to 40 feet. MEC’s 34-J gives 40-foot (12.2m) working height with standard 5-foot (1.5m) jib for 135-degree range of motion. It is compact and lightweight at just 8,000 pounds (3,639 kg) without compromising construction-grade durability. The 34-J can be towed with a full-size truck, or three units could fit on a flatbed truck for the lowest delivery cost.
The unit also features a standard 72-inch platform including three-sided entry with a swing gate. Like all MEC booms the 34-J has ergonomic platform controls with the optional Proactive Platform Safety System and is designed without a footswitch, giving the operator increased visibility and mobility in the platform. It has powerful 4-wheel drive and positive traction with an oscillating front axle – a true rough terrain construction boom. MEC’s 34-J diesel telescopic boom works up to a 40-foot (12.2m) height, with all the benefits of a self-propelled unit. This newest MEC boom is micro sized, lightweight, full-featured, rugged, simple and reliable all in one.
