JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, has received a $4 million order from the US Navy to manufacture 26 Engine Installation and Removal Vehicles (EIRV).

The telehandler-like vehicles are specially designed JLG units and will be used around the world at naval facilities.

"The JLG EIRV is the newest addition to a stellar line of combat-proven access solutions," said Denny Buterbaugh, JLG Industries vice president, government products and programs.

"A state-of-the-art hydraulic system provides the precision necessary for placing and removing engines on a wide variety of aircraft. The JLG vehicle's extreme terrain ability allows it to be used in almost any environment."

The EIRV is based on JLG's telehandler designs and has a 29-foot outreach and a vertical extension of 41 feet. It has a 6,000 pound capacity and four-wheel drive and steer.

The units will move engines on the P-3, C-2, E-2 and C-130 aircraft. It will be built at JLG's facility in McConnellsburg, PA.
