JLG’s new self-leveling boom lift at ConExpo.

JLG used ConExpo to roll out a number of new products, including a 10,000-pound capacity telehandler and all-electric scissor lift.

The JLG 1075 telehandler features a 75-foot boom that can lift up to eight stories – a full two stories more than comparable, competitive models – and offers a 60-foot reach.

“Customers wanted a telehandler that could reach higher than 6 stories and extend further into a building than existing models so they could place materials where they were needed, rather than placing them, then reloading them for movement to the work area,” said John Boehme, senior product manager, telehandlers, JLG. “Reducing this type of material re-handling will drive significant productivity gains and, in some cases, eliminate or delay the use of cranes on a job site.”

The new 1075 telehandler comes standard with JLG’s Longitudinal Stability Indication (LSI) as well as a two-way right-side view camera for improved visibility and operator confidence during operation.

Optional technologies include SmartLoad and a remote-controlled boom, which can be used by an operator to place material at height from outside the cab

JLG also launched its first all-electric Davinci scissor lift – the AE1932. The AE1932 is the first lift in a new category of all-electric lifts for JLG called the Davinci series. The features fully optimized components that allow it to be powered with a single lithium-ion battery and no compromise to performance.

The 19-foot platform height, 32-inch wide AE1932 scissor provides a class-leading platform capacity of 600lbs both indoors and outdoors, a 20% improvement from typical scissors and is compliant to A92.20 standards. The machine travels 2x faster than a standard scissor lift and charges 3.5x faster, delivering unmatched uptime and flexibility on the jobsite. Each wheel is controlled independently for reduced tire wear and limits damage to sensitive flooring.

Its single lithium-ion battery is backed by a class-leading warranty and is expected to last 120-plus months, so owners should never have to replace a battery during the machine’s lifespan. This will be the first unit in the industry to recover energy while the platform is being lowered which contributes to a 70% decrease in power consumption with longer life on a charge than a standard scissor. Optimized components and fewer serviceable parts further reduce service requirements.

The DaVinci AE1932 comes standard with QuikFold rails and JLG Mobile Control, which allows a user to move and load the scissor from up to 40 feet away. The AE1932 joins the R1932 hydraulic drive models, as well as the ES1932 electric drive models, to round out the JLG 19’ scissor offering.

JLG also showed its 670SJ self-leveling boom lift, a battery management system, AccessReady Fusion XR Virtual Reality Training, new rough-terrain scissor lifts, the 600 series hi-capacity HC3 boom and construction robotics.
