MEC launches all-electric scissor lift
08 February 2023
US-based MEWP manufacturer MEC Aerial Work Platforms has launched the NANO10-XD, its first all-electric scissor lift.
Powered by standard lithium-ion batteries to enable faster charging and longer operation, the machine is equipped with an all-electric lift, steer, and drive and is said to require zero hydraulic oil.
With a maximum platform height of 3m (10ft) and an operating weight of 560kg, the NANO10-XD can easily fit into a standard elevator and is said to be suitable for use on a wide range of floor types.
According to the company, its compact design makes it “perfect for data centers, hospitality, food, and pharmaceutical applications,” while also allowing it to pass through standard door frames.
Other features include a standard Xtra Deck to get through 2’x 2’ ceiling grids and use in hard-to-reach areas, standard swing gate and ground to platform step height which removes the need for a ladder.
Gary Crook, VP of Engineering of MEC Aerial Work Platforms, said, “We took a fresh look into the low-level access segment and what constituted as a true solution to the ‘Ladders Last’ commitment.
“It became clear that not only should the risks of using a ladder be mitigated but productivity needed to be an integral ingredient to the recipe.
“The NANO10-XD brings the quantum leap in productivity over ladders and push around lifts that is a self-propelled MEWP in a package more compact than ever before.”
The NANO10-XD electric scissor lift will be on show at next week’s 2023 ARA Show in Florida, US, and at ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas, US, next month.
