Featured Options

Glazier Package
Robust one-piece tray design that is quick and easy to install, remove and store when not in use. Meets Glazier needs with one long continuous tray that is lightweight, strong, safe and high visibility.
Welder Ready Generator Package
Engineered based on a Harrison hydraulically driven 7500-watt, 208-volt 3 phase generator and specifically designed pump to run the generator (not off the drive pump) providing a simple, safe and reliable system. Control system automatically drops out the generator when machine movement is used and re-engages once movement is complete to save overspeed damage to the generator.
Proactive Platform Safety System® (PPSS)
MEC’s PPSS option senses an overhead object with two ultrasonic sensors located behind the operator. With these high-tech sensors, the operators are proactively warned of an overhead hazard to mitigate collision and entrapment.
