JLG smart technology makes their Scissor Lifts stand out
JLG Industries, a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, builds its ES-Series and R-Series slab scissor lifts with intuitive technologies that differentiate them from each other and the competition. This approach allows JLG to offer a broad range of models that cater to the specific needs of its customers. JLG will showcase four models from its dual-line ES-Series and R-Series scissors—the 4045R with pipe racks, a 1932R, a 1930ES and 3246ES with tire socks—at booth #4413 during The Rental Show.
“At the show we will feature the multiple technologies built into our electric slab scissors that set them apart from the competition,” said Rafael Nuñez, scissor lift product manager at JLG Industries, Inc. “We offer two distinct lines. Our popular ES-Series with premium features including an efficient electric drive system and our value-driven hydraulic drive R-Series with a simplified active pothole protection system.” JLG is uniquely positioned in the marketplace by offering two electric slab scissor lines. In some instances, such as lubrication-free scissor arm bushings, the lines share common technologies to deliver maximum uptime.
Built for rugged reliability, the rental-ready R-Series electric slab scissor lifts offer 19 foot and 45 foot models with up to 770 lb. platform capacity. Premium and efficient ES-Series scissors are available in five models from 19 feet to 32 feet, with dual capacity on select models, which deliver up to 1,000 lb. platform capacity.
“The technologies built into every one of our scissors, be it an ES or R model, is what set them apart,” said Nuñez. “For example, our exclusive variable tilt technology, included on both ES and R-series scissors, allows operators to elevate to limited heights when working on slight slopes, maximizing the work envelope.”
Additional technologies included on JLG scissor lifts include:
- Controlled elevation descent, which cushions the ride for the operator when the scissor is coming to a stop on the way up, or just before it reaches the bottom on the way down. This is technology is included on both ES and R-Series Models.
- Controlled drive descent allows for smooth descents, which protects machine components as customers traverse steep slopes and is Included on both ES and R-Series Models.
- The 4045R, the narrowest machine in its size class, offers zero load calibration. Its pressure-based load sensing system (LSS) includes functionality for a simple calibration which can be performed in the field without the need for calibrated weights. As a bonus, the JLG LSS is less sensitive to ambient temperatures, especially in cold-weather applications.
- Dual capacity is available on select ES-Series models, providing customers and end users with the ability to take additional materials and tools to lower elevations up to the restricted capacity of the unit.
While most scissor lifts appear similar at first glance, look beyond the actual exterior and you will find technologies that truly differentiate a standard scissor from one that provides advanced technologies and features that deliver performance advantages on-the-job.
