MEC Aerial Work Platforms has extended its micro scissor lift line with the new Micro 26 slab scissor.

The manufacturer said there is strong demand for construction-duty scissor lift that enables work up to 32ft with a smaller footprint for easier access and maneuverability. To the effect the Micro 26 fulfills is 74 inches long, almost 2ft shorter than traditional 26ft scissors.

“Its ultra-compact 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 that traditional scissor lifts cannot access,” said a company spokesman.

MEC added that the Micro also has advantages over vertical lifts. The Micro 26 features a spacious, true two-person platform with generous work spac, says the company. Its standard 36 inch roll out extension deck includes incremental lock positions. Another benefit is 360-degree work accessibility. The optional MEC Leak Containment System, offers fewer leakage points.

It is particularly suited to applications like large data centres and other sites with finished concrete flooring. Direct electric drive is included for fast drive speeds and quiet operation and up to three times the duty cycle. The unit complies with the new ANSI standards. These factors and more play a major role in the Micro 26 becoming the better market solution.
