JLG has created a new role in its marketing team to help nurture the growth of vertical mast and low level access in North America.
To lead this growing division, the company has promoted Aaron Haynes to product marketing manager of its vertical and low level access product lines in the country.
Equipment includes the eco-friendly, non-powered Ecolift series, the 830P push around mast lift and Liftpod personal portable lifts.
“We see great opportunity in the low-level access market, and are committed to offering customers a wide selection of products to solve their unique challenges,” said Paul Kreutzwiser, JLG Industries global director, scissor/verticals/low level access category. “Acquiring Power Towers helped strengthen our existing offering. The EcoLift series is a true game changer in the rental industry because of its robust and rental tough design.”
The JLG EcoLift 50 and EcoLift 70 are designed to be virtually maintenance-free, thanks to a patented stored power lift/lower system that requires no batteries, hydraulics, oils, or controls. In addition, they are easy to operate, environmentally friendly, and provide working heights of 10 feet 11 inches and 13 feet 2 inches, respectively, by turning a handle to move the platform up or down.
The 830P push around mast lift uses hydraulics to lift operators to a working height of 14 feet and offers workers a generous 29- by 39-inch platform featuring 440 pounds of capacity.
The LiftPod personal portable lifts offer plant and facility maintenance workers a secure platform and the ability to work 360 degrees with both hands at heights of up to 20 feet. A convenient tool tray increases jobsite productivity, with a total platform capacity of 330 pounds.
