The Eazi Group, JLG’s sole distributor for Southern Africa, has ordered 100 units with a value of $6.3 million.
The package includes Ultrabooms, compact crawlers, rough terrain scissors and super compact telehandlers. The majority of new products are for Eazi’s rental fleet, while some of the more popular products were ordered by the sales division to improve retail lead times.

Brett Fleming, CEO of the Eazi Group, said, “With this latest addition of JLG platforms, we can continue to offer our market leading work at height and material handling solutions to our customers.”
The latest fleet addition includes: the 19.6m platform height JLG X20J plus compact crawler boom; 2505H super compact telehandler with maximum lift capacity of 2500 kg and lift height of 5.6m; the 530LRT rough terrain scissor with standard oscillating axle, platform height of 18.15m and a 680kg capacity; and the 58.56m working height 1850SJ, with outreach of 25.03m.

The units will be delivered to South Africa during the remainder of 2016 and into the early part of 2017.
