How do you set a potentiometer on a MEC scissor lift?

Follow these steps to set a potentiometer on a MEC scissor lift. Locate the potentiometer on the scissor lift, typically on the joystick controller's base. Place the negative lead of the voltmeter on the appropriate wire using a voltmeter set to read DC voltage. Adjust the potentiometer until you achieve the desired reading on the voltmeter. This will ensure the potentiometer is appropriately calibrated and set for optimal performance. Proper calibration of potentiometers is crucial to ensure accurate and safe operation of the equipment.

Where is the MEC scissor lift serial number located?

The serial number of a MEC scissor lift can be found in multiple locations on the equipment, like the serial plate, typically mounted on the chassis or the control panel. The operator's manual provided by MEC usually contains information about the location of the serial number.

Financing FAQs
What are the benefits of financing used equipment purchases?

Securing funding for your used equipment purchases through United Rentals can positively impact your overall financial situation. Financing your equipment, as opposed to paying cash, helps you better manage your cash flow and minimizes the risk of your equipment becoming obsolete. With the flexibility to upgrade or add-on as your equipment needs change, you can allocate your operating capital to more profitable investments or other business expenses. Unlike variable bank lines of credit, our fixed payment plans provide stability and allow you to budget and forecast effectively. Moreover, financing makes acquiring equipment more feasible by spreading the cost across manageable monthly payments, allowing you to buy more equipment. Consider adding our United Guard Warranty to selected purchases as part of your financing package to safeguard your investment. 

What options do I have for leasing equipment?

United Rentals provides various leasing options tailored to different financial needs. The most common choice is our $1 Purchase Option Lease, which offers flexible terms lasting from 12 to 60 months and requires property and liability insurance. Alternatively, our 10% Purchase Option Lease covers the same term range, with the customer responsible for 10% of the total financed amount at the end of the lease. For customers with seasonal work and a solid credit history, our Seasonal Lease offers payment options on an annual, semiannually or quarterly basis. Lastly, our Lease-to-Own Option, also with terms ranging from 12 to 60 months, allows flexibility in settling the principal balance — it can be paid in full or financed, or the equipment can be returned. United Rentals can help you choose the leasing option that works best for you. To qualify for financing, fill out our application form today. 

What are the options for financing equipment?

United Rentals’ Equipment Finance Agreement Loan offers flexibility with terms ranging from 12 to 60 months. This plan is designed explicitly for financing titled equipment, which means having property insurance is mandatory. On the flip side, our Rental Purchase Option (RPO) provides shorter terms of six or 12 months. However, there's a minimum total spending requirement of $10,000, which includes taxes and warranties. The RPO also requires the purchase of a matching United Guard Warranty. At the end of the term, customers have the option to pay the principal balance in full, finance it or return the equipment, depending on their financial preferences. To qualify for financing, fill out our application form. For help determining which loan option is right for you, contact your local United Rentals branch today.  

Are there any tax incentives for buying used equipment?

There are tax advantages to buying used equipment. IRS section 179 allows businesses to deduct the total purchase price of equipment from taxable income, encompassing both new and used equipment purchases and leases.
