JLG takes LiftPods on tour
By Lindsey Anderson18 March 2011
After expanding its LiftPod line of aerial work platforms in early 2011, JLG Industries, Inc., is taking the family or low-level access lifts on a demo tour across the US.
JLG will visit more than 70 cities across the country to demonstrate the lifts to facility managers.
"Based on the success of our previous tour, we decided to bring the LiftPod to a larger audience of facility managers and give them the opportunity to see the work platform in action," said Randy Marzicola, director - channel development, JLG Industries. "People who see a demonstration of the LiftPod quickly recognize its capabilities and appreciate the benefits it offers in terms of safety, efficiency and affordability."
JLG representatives will drive three LiftPod vans to various locations to answer questions about the product and provide hands-on demonstrations. Two models iwll be showcased, including the FS80, which is designed with a 14-foot working height and 41-inch base, and the FS60. The FS60 has a 30-inch base, which allows operators to move the LiftPod through doorways without having to take it apart. The FS60 is also designed with maneuverability in mind with non-marking rear caster wheels, and has a 12-foot working height and 6-foot standing height.
The FS60 is ANSI A92.3-2006/CSA B354.1-04 compliant.
