MEC's 4191RT rough terrain scissor has a working height of 14.5 m.

MEC Aerial Work Platforms has introduced a scissor series designed for rugged use. The Rough Terrain 91 series includes the model 2591RT, 3391RT and 4191RT.

“The new MEC 91 Series has true rough terrain–ability that is boosted by the Quad–Trax 4WD Power needed to briskly transport the MEC RT scissor to and from each job, even when the climate conditions are not ideal,” said Jim Tolle, MEC president.

In each model, the oscillating rear axle has a full 0.3 m (12 inches) of ground clearance. Working heights are 9.62 m (31 ft) for the 2591RT, 12.06 m (39 ft) for the 3391RT and 14.5 m (47 ft) for the 4191RT. When the 1.22 m (48 in) roll–out deck is fully extended, the platform measures 4.57 m (180 in) in length by 2.31 m (91 in) in width.

Platform capacities are 908 kg (2000 pounds) on the 2591RT, 680 kg (1500 pounds) on the 3391RT and 454 kg (1000 pounds) on the 4191RT.

All three models feature extra large platforms with rated capacities for four people plus work tools and materials. Maintenance access is through a lift–up door at eye level with no need to raise the platform or to swing out trays. All three models are powered by either a Kubota DF752 dual fuel (gasoline and liquid propane) engine or a Kubota D1105 diesel engine. Gradeability is 45% and inside turning radius is 1.93 m (76 inches).
