MEC Aerial Work Platforms added to its growing vertical mast line up with the introduction of the MME30-RJ. The MME30-RJ joins the MME Series (MME20 and MME25) along with MEC’s first all-electric machine, the MMAE16.
The MME30-RJ leads with AC Direct Electric Drive for higher efficiency, longer duty cycles and higher product residual value. With a working indoor height of 36 feet and weight of 6,600 pounds, it has the best height to weight ratio in the 30-foot class, according to the manufacturer. It facilitates reaching up-and-over areas with its 345-degree turntable rotation, 5-foot jib and in-line telescopic all steel mast.
Focusing on value to our customers in their total cost of ownership, standard AGM batteries coupled with AC Direct Electric Drive provides longer run times between charges, no hydraulic motors, and smoother controls for greater precision in tight areas. The MME30-RJ’s rugged platform and components provide robustness and durability for any jobsite.
“When we inquired about the single most detrimental aspect of this type of machine to TCO, we heard loud and clear that it was wet lead acid type batteries and the difficulty to maintain them,” said Gary Crook, vice president of engineering. “We eliminated this problem by using AGM type batteries that are maintenance free and hence a solid predictor to a lower TCO.”
Along with a 40-inch x 30-inch platform area, the MME30-RJ comes with fully proportional drive and lift controls and up to 25-percent gradeability to ensure smooth performance and operator safety.
