The two new models are the first releases from MEC’s new innovation plan to provide special application products and will be available through MEC’s Australian Dealer, Nifty Pty Ltd of Tomago NSW Early in 2009, Jim Tolle of MEC appointed Nifty Pty Ltd of Tomago NSW.
as the Australian dealer for the MEC range. Nifty is well known for its successful range of Nifty elevated work platforms which are well suited to the worldwide hire and rental markets.
The 5492RT is a 4WD rough terrain ultra-deck scissor lift with a platform height of 54 feet and a lift capacity of 1,500 lbs. The series features platform heights of 44 ft. (4492RT) and 54 ft. (5492RT), platform lengths up to 25 ft. 6 inches (with the optional Super Deck), optional dual slide-out deck extensions, and working heights up to 60 feet.
With 50% gradeabilty, an oscillating axle, four wheel drive and automatic levelling outriggers, this machine can handle the most demanding job sites. The Super Deck option adds an additional 40 inches of platform length to suit the longest working applications. Dual fuel and diesel engine options are available.
Rod Kerr of Nifty stated that the 3084RT Speed Level Sigma lift is the first in the MEC sigma lift series of rough terrain platforms. The other Speed Level sigma lift models in the MEC series include a 2684RT and two all-electric units: 2684ES and 3084ES. The series provides quick platform levelling without the use of outriggers. The platform and support structure level up to 14 degrees per side (side to side) and 10 degrees each forward and rearward with the operator’s choice of automatic or manual levelling within seconds.
The 3084RT offers a platform height of 30 feet, a lift capacity of 1,500 lbs., optional 4WD, and a standard oscillating axle for a solid 45% gradeability. Power choices include dual fuel, diesel or electric. The series provides the only possible method to drive elevated on a firm planar slope in applications such as tunnels with camber, auditoriums and steep aprons around buildings.
Also on display at the World of Concrete show are the MEC all-electric 4191ES and 3772ES scissor lifts, and a variety of other slab and rough terrain scissor lifts. The new units will also be on display at HRIA show, Melbourne Victoria in April 2009.
