JLG ENTERS NEW PRODUCT CATEGORY
WITH UTILITY VEHICLE LAUNCH
Three- and six-seat models offer best-in-class cargo capacity
Las Vegas — March 7, 2017— JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, today entered a new product category with the launch of its utility vehicles. The company showcased two models—the three-seat 315G and six-seat 615G—at Gold Lot booth #G3946 during CONEXPO 2017.
“By offering these vehicles, we’re equipping customers with a durable product backed by the full suite of JLG® aftermarket support services. This rugged design has been built to withstand heavy, long-term use and will be valuable on a variety of job sites,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries director of global strategy and business development. “Our customers will benefit from the convenience of a single source equipment supplier when purchasing this UTV with traditional JLG products such as booms, scissors and telehandlers.”
Both the JLG 315G and 615G feature a 10-inch ground clearance with four-wheel drive and an independent suspension to keep all four wheels on the ground during travel, delivering superior traction and balance. While in operation, drivers can shift between two-wheel and four-wheel drive, locking the differential, for improved control. Durability is further enhanced by a rugged axle, standard skid plate, brush guard bumper, heavy-duty steel frame and powder-coated paint.
The JLG 315G and 615G boast class-leading cargo capacities. The 1,000-pound cargo box, 1,500-pound towing capacity and removable truck bed panels to accommodate a full size skid, mean operators can carry more material, reducing the number of trips around the worksite. Rental customers gain the added peace of mind that comes with knowing their investment is backed by JLG’s comprehensive parts, service and support network.
Standard features on the vehicles include contoured seats and foot beds, individual headrests and seatbelts, power steering, backup alarm, and remote oil and filter check capability. Operators can choose from additional options to enhance comfort. These include an enclosed cab, heater, windshield, and beacon.
Available in North America, these gas-powered vehicles (diesel models will be introduced later this year) are manufactured through a partnership agreement with Arctic Cat. Their versatility makes them an efficient means of moving people and materials around large construction sites, convention centers, event venues and commercial business parks.
