New models offer 544kg (1,200-lb) platform capacity and are rated for indoor and outdoor use
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, is pleased to announce the availability of two new scissor lift models: The electric-drive ES2646 and the hydraulic-drive R2646. With a platform height of 26-ft (7.92-m), a class-leading capacity of 544.31-kg (1200-lbs) and the ability to work both indoors and out, these new JLG® machines deliver a more productive day on the job.
“With a wide variety of jobs to be done, the 20% increase in capacity of the ES and R2646 models, as compared to competitive models in the size class, allows scissor lift operators to carry more materials, like pipes and panels, as well as tools such as welders, to the work area,” says Jan-Willem van Wier, Sr. Product Marketing Management for JLG EMEAIR. “This means that overhead tasks can be completed quicker and more efficiently.”
The ES2646 and R2646 models share a common chassis and platform, offering 9.75-m (32-ft) of working height and the ability to carry two occupants to height in indoor applications (one occupant to height when being used outdoors). The new ES2646 model is available with JLG’s optional CleanGuard™ leak containment system for work on sensitive flooring. The new R2646 is equipped with active pothole protection that provides increased ground clearance when working on demanding terrain.
These new JLG scissor lifts also share common technologies, such as variable tilt to increase the work envelope during use on uneven surfaces, and can accommodate a variety of options and accessories, including JLG® Mobile Control, QuikAccess Rails and QuikFold Rails.
