JLG is also offering the community the use of the Compact Crawler X19J together with operator training. Roberto Marangoni, JLG Industries general manager of Italy said, "When a natural disaster like this occurs, everybody tries to help out to limit the damage suffered. The least we can do is to reach out to the community and the area by lending equipment which is suitable for these kinds of jobs."
