JLG Doubles Service Intervals for JLG and SkyTrak Telehandlers

Aerial work platform manufacturer JLG Industries has doubled the length of its engine service intervals on JLG and SkyTrak telehandlers from 500 to 1,000 hours. The extended intervals apply to JLG and SkyTrak telehandlers equipped with QSF3.8 diesel engines.

“Extending service intervals for these telehandlers underscores our commitment to delivering products that offer a lower total cost of ownership for our customers,” said JLG Industries global product director for telehandlers Brian Boeckman. “By increasing the period between oil changes, we are cutting in half the time customers spend changing oil, oil filters, and fuel filters while doubling the time machines are rental-ready. The result is customers who are more productive and profitable.”

Boeckman also attributed the extended service intervals to the use of synthetic oil and newly released oil and fuel filters.
