MEC Unveils Slim 19' Scissor and 45' Articulating Boom Lifts

MEC is expanding its extensive line of DC direct-electric-drive slab scissors with the new Micro 19 scissor lift.

19-ft. Micro Scissor
The line already features the 1330SE Micro scissor lift through the 4555SE. The Micro 19 will expand the offering in the micro class of scissors.

Like the 1330, the Micro 19’s ultra-compact design fits into small and tight work areas plus delivers all the benefits of extended duty cycles and faster drive speeds shared by the full direct-electric-drive line.

“As with most of our new product development projects, we started out by listening to our customers' 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-ft. machines achieve. Today’s construction business packs 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.” says Gary Crook, vice president of engineering.

“The Micro 19 in combination to our 1330SE now provides our customers with the height options they need in the tight spaces where the Micro class delivers,” says David White, president. “A 19-ft.-class machine that can fit in elevators opens up many new opportunities.”

45-ft. Articulating Boom Lift
MEC also introduces its new 45-AJ, a 45-ft. articulating boom lift. The 45-AJ features a 48-hp  Kubota diesel engine, and is the only lift in its class offering 360° continuous rotation, according to MEC. Standard features include: solid rough-terrain tires; 6-ft.-wide, 3-sided entry platform with swing gate; powerful 4WD; and oscillating front axle, among many others.

“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,” said White.
