JLG Industries has launched a new generation of rough-terrain (RT) and electric rough-terrain (ERT) scissor lifts. According to JLG, the new family represents a “from-the-ground-up” development process that incorporates the new ANSI 92.20 requirements. The new scissor lifts are 69 inches wide and are available in 26-, 33-, 40-, and 47-foot platform heights. All models are available with a diesel engine or battery power source and electric drive. The 47-foot platform height of the RT4769 and ERT4769 provides up to a five-story work height.
LiftSense, an evolution of the JLG variable tilt system, monitors both the weight in the platform and the machine’s tilt to determine the allowable work envelope. This new feature notifies the operator prior to raising the machine how high the platform can elevate. Also, according to JLG, the QuikLevel Advanced feature allows the stowed scissor lift to level on a side slope up to 5 degrees, with driving at full height allowed under certain conditions. The new scissor lifts also use an LCD platform control box, which displays productivity, terrain, machine-health information, as well as safety notifications to the operator during operation.
