New MEC Aerial Lift Platform Offers Diesel, Electric or Hybrid Power Options


A California equipment manufacturer is ahead of the curve on the new wave of electric and hybrid aerial lift market.

MEC Aerial Work Platforms, based in Kerman, California (Fresno County), recently announced their impressive 60-J boom lift, which has a 750-pound capacity, over 42’ of outreach and a 60’ high work surface.

There are three power options for the 60-J: a diesel engine, a 72-volt battery system, or hybrid power. The hybrid option switches between diesel and battery for optimum energy efficiency.

MEC’s Business Support Manager Matthew Gauer said, “With our 60-J, we are aiming to earn market share in the heart of the boom-lift market by offering an advantageously equipped and competitively priced product.”

With stowed dimensions of 30’6″ long, 8’0″ wide, and 8’4″ tall, the 60-J can fit into smaller work spaces and can also fit on a standard trailer. Additionally, buyers can choose the popular electric extended auxiliary system and welding & generator packages.

The official introduction for the 60-J AWP is slated for the American Rental Association’s “The Rental Show” in New Orleans from February 22-25, 2015.
