RER’s Innovative Product Award Honorable Mention – MEC Micro 26

Manufacturer: MEC Aerial Work Platforms  

Key Innovation: Micro size almost 2 feet shorter than other 26-foot scissorlifts in the market.

Manufacturer’s Description: MEC extended its Micro Scissors offering and extensive line of DC electric slab scissors with the Micro 26 slab scissor lift. There’s strong demand for a traditional construction-duty scissor that enables work up to 32 feet with a smaller footprint for easier access and maneuverability. MEC’s Micro 26 fulfills this need with its short length of 74 inches, a compact size almost two feet shorter than other 26-foot scissor lifts. 

MEC’s Micro 26 is an innovative alternative to traditional scissor lifts. Its micro design gives easy accessibility in small spaces including personnel and freight elevators. This is a remarkable advantage because of its high level of maneuverability into tight work areas traditional scissors cannot access. The Micro 26 is also a better solution over vertical lifts. Its robust scissor design and large platform substantially increases productivity. It features a spacious, true two-person platform with generous workspace. Its standard 36-inch roll-out extension deck includes incremental lock positions, maximizing productivity and material usage. Another benefit of its platform is that it gives 360-degree work accessibility so the operator can move freely.

The Micro 26 has fewer leak points in addition to the optional MEC Leak Containment System, thus the Micro 26 is preferred for large data center applications and other sites with finished concrete flooring. Direct electric drive is ideal because of its fast drive speeds and quiet operation. The Micro 26 also gets up to three times the duty cycle with direct electric drive, allowing more work to get done with less time charging the machine. This unit complies with the new ANSI standards.
