MEC Announces Leak Containment System

For over 40 years, MEC Aerial Work Platforms has elevated the tradition of innovation and quality. The award-winning manufacturer’s line of aerial work platforms ranges from DC direct electric drive slab scissors to rough terrain booms. Continuing with unmatched innovation, MEC announced the Leak Containment System.

MEC Aerial Work Platforms

MEC Aerial Work Platforms announced the patent-pending Leak Containment System. As MEC investigated hydraulic oil leaks, they found that the majority of leaks come from the hydraulic motors on the front wheels. The wheels continually stress the hoses with the steering functions. As a result, MEC’s entire line of slab scissors is a direct electric drive, which reduces oil leaks with the elimination of drive wheels. With the innovation of LSC, operating machines receive a better solution.

Leak Containment System

The Leak Containment System improves productivity and efficiency on the worksite with easy installation and leak detection. The system consists of trays with strategically placed inspection holes that integrate into the lifts for quick detection. When a leak is detected on the absorbent pad, it can be easily located, removed, and replaced. These trays are protected from damage from job site debris, forklift handling, and weather elements.

“MEC thrives on learning our customer’s pain points and creating a better solution to eliminate them. LCS is the perfect result of that.”

-Gary Cook, Vice President of Engineering
