MEC has made the first shipment of its new dual articulated and telescopic boom lift.

The DualReach 85-J Diesel Boom, launchesd at the ARA Show in February this year, is decribed by the company as pioneering in its ability to switch between telescopic and articulated configurations at the flip of a switch, increasing fleet worksite versatility and productivity.

“We are incredibly proud to see the DualReach 85-J Booms shipped,” said David White, MEC’s President. “This is more than just a product shipment; it’s a testament to our team’s dedication and relentless pursuit of better solutions. We are leading the change and setting a new standard for innovation in the industry.”

A single DualReach unit can manage jobs that previously required two separate boom lifts, with its patent-pending design allowing operators to transition between telescopic and articulated modes while the unit is stowed.

In either configuration, the DualReach 85-J delivers a 91-foot working height. In telescopic mode, it offers 70-foot maximum outreach, while the articulated mode provides a maximum up-and-over height of 21 feet.

It offers the option of 600 lbs. unrestricted / 900 lbs. restricted platform capacity, and optional automatic frame leveling up to seven degrees on slopes. Its steering options, include two-wheel, four-wheel, and crab steering. The ergonomically designed platform controls integrate with the Proactive Platform Safety System option, which alerts operators to overhead hazards.
