By Lindsey Anderson20 October 2014
Edmonton-based 4-Way Equipment Rentals has taken delivery of the first two MEC 6092RT scissor lifts ever produced. Receipt of the shipment crowns the 6092RT as the largest scissor lift produced in North America – surpassing the MEC 5492RT.
The 6092RT was designed to give construction contractors another option at the 66 feet (20.2m) working height range.
The machine is powered by a Kubota turbo diesel engine and provides a lift capacity of 1,200 pounds (540kg) up to a platform height of 60 feet (18.2m). The unit's work space features dual roll out decks that provide 24 feet, 9 inches x 75 inches (7.54m x 1.9m) of workspace. MEC said the lift capacity and available work area offers an advantage over competing boom products in comparable applications.
Standard features include: auto leveling outriggers for slope correction, as well as lift and drive controls that are fully proportional from the control box on the platform. Also standard on the machine is 4 wheel drive that provides up to 40 percent gradeability through the use of two-speed planetary drive wheel motors.
4-Way Equipment Rentals has been a longtime MEC customer and early adopter of MEC products in the past.
Marc Mandin, COO of 4-Way, said these aerial lifts are sure to be a big hit with 4-Way’s customers.
“As construction projects get larger and more complex, so do the lift needs of our customers," Mandin said. "We’re very pleased to be able to offer our customers with a platform height of 60 feet with a 150 square feet of work space.”
