MEC Xtra-Deck® Micro Scissors (Patent-Pending)


MEC Aerial Work Platforms is proud to announce the launch of its newest innovation. For MEWP operators, safely gaining extra height into confined areas has long been a major industry challenge. MEC’s patent-pending Xtra Deck® scissor lifts are that solution. MEC now offers the Micro13-XD and Micro19-XD micro slab scissor lifts featuring a pull down Xtra Deck®, providing an additional 20 inch height compact platform with telescopic guardrails

MEC’s patent-pending Xtra Deck® micro scissors feature guardrails on four sides of the Xtra Deck® that slide up and lock into place, meeting regulation height. This additional protection enables the operator to freely use both hands to complete work tasks. Its 22 inch width allows access through tight ceiling panels and other hard to reach areas. MEC’s Xtra Deck® micro scissors can be driven at full height, and the Xtra Deck® can be used with the roll-out deck extended or retracted. The Xtra Deck® can be quickly deployed and gives 250lbs capacity for 1 person. When using the Xtra Deck®, the control box can be moved to the slide-up guardrails to allow safe operation from the upper controls. When the operator completes their work, Xtra Deck® can quickly be stowed and the guardrails can easily be retracted to their original posion. Xtra Deck® is there when you need it and folds away when you don’t!

MEC’s Micro13-XD and Micro19-XD are A Better Solution to access extra height into confined areas that mitigates the temptation and risks associated with standing on the mid-rails. With Xtra Deck® integrated into the machine, it does not require installation and it greatly improves job site safety and productivity while complying with the new ANSI standards.
