Aerial work platform manufacturer JLG Industries has created a new role on its marketing team to help nurture the growth of verticals and low-level access segments in North America. To lead this growing division and support low-level access customers, the company promoted Aaron Haynes to product marketing manager of JLG’s vertical and low-level access product lines in North America.
Offering a safe and simple alternative to ladders and scaffolding, equipment models include the eco-friendly, non-powered EcoLift series, the 830P push-around mast lift and LiftPod personal portable lifts.
“We see great opportunity in the low-level access market and are committed to offering customers a wide selection of products to solve their unique challenges,” said Paul Kreutzwiser, JLG Industries global director, scissor/verticals/low-level access category. “Acquiring Power Towers Ltd. helped strengthen our existing offering. The EcoLift series is a true game changer in the rental industry because of its robust and rental-tough design.”
The EcoLift 50 and EcoLift 70 are virtually maintenance-free because of a patented stored power lift/lower system that requires no batteries, hydraulics, oils or controls. Both models are rated for 300-pound capacity, leaving room for materials and tools to boost productivity; and are basically silent with no hydraulics or motors involved.
The 830P push-around mast lift uses hydraulics to lift operators to a working height of 14 feet and offers a 29- by 39-inch platform featuring 440 pounds of capacity.
The LiftPod personal portable lifts offer plant and facility maintenance workers a secure platform and the ability to work 360 degrees with both hands at heights of up to 20 feet.
