Rough terrain MECs arrive in the Netherlands
By Euan Youdale02 March 2015
MEC importer for the Netherlands Omega Group delivered the country's first 6092RT Ultra-Deck scissor lifts to HWS Rental Noordwijk.
The MEC 6092RT is a 20.2 m rough terrain scissor from the manufacturer’s 92 Series, with a chassis width of 2.34 meters. Its Ultra Dual-Deck roll-out platform has a length of 7.5 m and a lifting capacity of 600 kg and comes with a Quad-Trax-wheel drive as standard. Power comes from a Kubota turbo diesel with two speed planetary wheel motors. The active oscillating axle and auto-levelling outriggers makes the scissor lift suitable for rough terrain. The scissor lift weighs 9200 kg allowing two machines to be transported on one flatbed trailer.
Toby van de Kooij, co-owner of HWS Verhuur said it now had 10 MEC units in its rental fleet, with more to follow. HWS Verhuur specialises in aerial work platforms, telehandlers and forklifts, with offices in Noordwijk and Nunspeet, the Netherlands.
