MEC Aerial Work Platforms introduces its newest product line of vertical mast lifts; the MEC Mast Electric (MME) Series. The MME Series leads with direct electric drive for high efficiency, longer duty cycles and higher product residual value. The MME Series offers two heights to chose from: the MME20 with a platform height of 20 feet and the MME25 with the non-rotating vertical mast lift platform height of 25 feet.
“Focusing on value to our customers in their total cost of ownership, standard AGM batteries coupled with direct electric drive provides longer run times between charges, no hydraulic motors, and smoother more precise controls for greater precision in tight areas,” said Gary Crook, vice president of engineering. “The advantages of direct electric drive are important to our customers for high productivity on their jobsites, so just like our slab scissor line we are committed to it over the legacy hydraulic drive. It’s the very nature of our ‘Better Solution’ mission.”
“When we decided to enter the mast market, we received great input on shortfalls in these types of machines and we were determined to see what we could do better. It’s what our engineering team does best!” said David White, president.
The MME’s rugged steel platform and components provide robustness and resilience. The platform comes with a glide-out extension deck to give the operator almost 4 feet to work within and standard 350 pounds capacity on both the main and slide-out deck; a standard full height lift gate completes the platform benefits. Sealed roller bearings in the Nylatron rollers in the mast columns allow for smooth elevation with a minimal gap for rigidity throughout the life of the machine. Lower ground pressure - around 130 psi - increases utilization across a wide range of floor types.
MEC’s MME Series gives operators access into tight areas on even the most demanding jobsites. Adding MEC’s patent pending Leak Containment System, customers receive a truly better solution. MEC’s LCS is a system of trays integrated to contain leaks and protect flooring while not interfering with safe machine operation.
