Leak Containment System

June 18, 2019 - MEC Aerial Work Platforms announced the patent-pending Leak Containment System (LCS).

MEC investigated hydraulic oil leaks and found the majority come from the hydraulic motors on the front wheels that are constantly stressing the hoses with steering functions. MEC’s entire slab scissor line is direct electric drive, eliminating the drive wheels as a source of oil leaks. With a system of trays integrated into MEC slab scissor lifts to contain leaks, the LCS delivers a better solution to operating machines on surfaces that require protection.
