MEC® Introduces All-New NetZero™ Vertical Mast and Scissor Lifts – The Largest Range of All-Electric MEWPs in North America


[Kerman, CA, February 17, 2024] – In a landmark move for the aerial access industry, MEC® Aerial Work Platforms announces its all new range of NetZero™ vertical mast lifts and scissor lifts — the largest line of all-electric mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) in North America. The NetZero nomenclature represents engineering advancements with a new era of fully electric lift, steer, and drive aerial lifts with unmatched performance and efficiency, resulting in zero hydraulics, zero leaks and zero emissions. With 10 NetZero models now available, ranging from 10ft (3m) to 45ft (13.5m) platform heights, MEC is leading the change in sustainability.

“With the NetZero range, MEC demonstrates its dedication towards delivering the most sustainable products in the industry. When your customer and application need this advanced solution, MEC has you covered.” said Gary Crook, VP of Engineering at MEC

Boasting working heights from 16ft (4.9m) to 51ft (15m) and indoor/outdoor capabilities in certain models, the new MEC NetZero product line includes the Nano10®-XD, 1330AE, Micro13AE®-XD, MMAE16, Micro19AE®, Micro19AE-XD, Micro26AE®, 3346AE, 4046AE and 4555SAE lifts. This full range means MEC now offers its customers a 100-percent electric lift, steer, and drive MEWP in every height to meet their unique fleet needs.

All NetZero all-electric models are engineered to lower customers’ total cost of ownership (TCO) thanks to their no-engine, no-hydraulics, and maintenance-free battery design — fewer components on the machine means fewer parts that require regular maintenance and service. These new machines are also designed to optimize the battery’s duty cycles and maximize energy efficiency during operation, which reduces operating costs and saves money.

The MEC NetZero lifts are powered entirely by proven AGM or a Lithium-Ion batteries. All are designed with all-electric actuators that replaces a traditional hydraulic system. This breakthrough design removes the risk of hydraulic fluid leaks, which can create conditions that pose hazards to workers and potentially damage finished flooring. And, because there is no engine on NetZero models, there is no coolant in these lifts, further reducing the risk of job site leaks and spills. These features ensure a safer and cleaner work environment while lowering regular maintenance tasks and daily operating costs.

Additional benefits of the engine-free NetZero range design are zero emissions and zero noise. With no emissions, NetZero lifts are ideal for a broad range of projects, including pollution-restricted urban areas, healthcare facilities, schools, and office buildings where emissions-free work is vital for maintaining air quality. Noise-free equipment is especially important when working in sound-sensitive environments, such as residential neighborhoods, and indoor facilities, such as shopping centers and grocery stores. No operating noise translates into improved working conditions for operators and bystanders and less disruption for surrounding areas.

As another innovative and safer alternative to ladders the new NetZero all-electric range directly addresses the evolving needs of the access industry, offering efficient and sustainable work-at-height solutions for the worksites of today and tomorrow.
