US manufacturer MEC Aerial Work Platforms has launched a new range of aircraft ground support equipment (GSE).

First to be released in the Aircraft Support series is the MEC 4069RT-A and 4069ERT-A, both with a working height of 14 m. The platforms are designed for aircraft applications, with a large platform of 4.22 m (extended), 400 kg capacity and the ability to form to the curvature of the aircrafts fuselage. Both platforms are available in 4wd, diesel, gas/LPG, electric or hybrid power.

MEC’s director of international markets, Jim Tolle said: “The addition of the Aircraft Ground Support Series proves that innovativeness remains alive and well in the AWP industry. The 4069 Aircraft Support Series provides our aircraft maintenance customers with a safer and more productive solution in regards to aircraft maintenance.”

The MEC GSE range offers a new VVC (Variable Vertically Collapsing) guard rail system which allows the operator to position each guard rail independently in a manner where it forms to the curvature of the aircraft’s fuselage.

The GSE’s reverse mounted scissor linkage allows the scissor stack to move towards the rear of the machine when elevated, providing the operator with extended out-reach.

In addition, an access door on the floor of the deck extension gives the operator access to perform over-wing applications.
