MMAE16 – MEC® Mast All Electric 16 Foot

MEC Aerial Work Platforms is proud to announce the launch of its newest innovation in mast lifts. Drawing on the success of our MME (MEC Mast Electric) series, MEC engineers were challenged to develop our first all-electric mast – the MMAE16. The new eco-friendly mast has a compact design and eliminates the potential risk of an oil leak for environmentally safe applications due to zero hydraulic oil. With all-electric lift, steer, and drive, the MMAE16 delivers optimal battery duty cycle while requiring less charge time and delivers more up time with no compromise to performance.

At an indoor working height of 22 feet and 18 feet outdoors, the new mast is perfect for data centers, hospitality, food, and pharmaceutical applications. Along with being lightweight at 2,170 lbs. and low ground pressure, the machine is ideal for standard elevators and utilization across a wide range of floor types. At 78” tall and with no folding rails, it is easy to get thru standard door frames. Like the MME Series, the new mast comes with a standard glide out deck extension of 20 inches to make difficult areas to reach, easy and convenient.

“MEC stays true to our mission of A Better Solution in everything we do, and this is a strong confirmation for a delivering an All-Electric machine and eliminating the potential of hydraulic leaks,” states Gary Crook, VP of Engineering.

The MMAE16 will have a significant impact on the market’s drive for lower emissions and eco-friendly solutions. Along with being all-electric the new mast will deliver a better cost of ownership for rental companies and increased productivity for their customers.
