JLG Industries introduced three new boom lifts, its largest scissor lift and its redesigned line of JLG brand telehandlers at the Rental Show this week.
“The new JLG telehandlers are not just tweaked to be somewhat better, they’ve been redesigned and re-engineered from the ground up,” said Alan Loux, JLG Industries’ vice president of global marketing.
The telehandler launch includes five machines, ranging in capacity from 6,600 to 12,000 pounds, and in height from 42 to 55 feet. Highlight changes include a completely redesigned cab for improved operator comfort and control, a rear axle stabilization system, and improved serviceability. An array of options is available for the new machines, including the industry’s first reverse-sensing system, a new integrated digital display with back-up camera and digital load charts, and a ride-control system to enhance operator confidence.
The new JLG telehandlers all utilized Tier 4 Final Cummins QSF 3.8L diesel engines. JLG is also launching many new and upgraded accessories for telehandlers, including a pipe grapple, a material handling arm and a trash hopper.
Other JLG product introductions at The Rental show included:
• The updated SkyTrak line of telehandlers;
• The 5394RT high-capacity, rough-terrain scissor lift, the biggest scissor in JLG’s line.
• The completely redesigned 400S and 460SJ telescopic (straight) boom lifts and the 450AJ articulating boom lift. JLG also showcased its LiftPod FT140 and FT70 personal portable lifts. These are the newest products in the LiftPod line and provide working reach to 20 and 13 feet, respectively. LiftPods are easily operated by one person, easy to move in a pick-up, van or SUV, and require very little space to stow.
