Why JLG Equipment Is a Favorite in Material Handling

Popular JLG Models and Their Unique Features
HTX offers a wide variety of world-leading JLG equipment, such as the following:
JLG Articulated and Telescopic Trailers
The articulated and telescopic trailers built by JLG offer multiple applications for indoor and outdoor use. With heights ranging from 35 to 79 feet, skilled workers can use these trailers to easily reach limited access areas. Their light weight allows them to be towed to nearly any site, and they feature an innovative stabilizer that provides an even platform on uneven surfaces. These trailers offer exceptional outreach, versatile performance, and easy maintenance.
Lightweight Self-Propelled Booms
The lightweight self-propelled booms JLG offers are among the most versatile machines on the market. With adjustable heights of up to 61 feet and low ground pressure for sensitive surfaces, they’re ideal for working outdoors and on concrete.
These booms also feature hydraulic outriggers that can be set up in under 30 seconds, eliminating the need for heavy counterweights. The light weight of JLG’s self-propelled boom means you don’t need a commercial driver’s license to operate it, allowing increased use for small contractors and businesses.
The electric articulating boom lifts allow your staff to reach what others can’t. With maximum heights approaching 130 feet, working in limited access areas is much easier. Some of the benefits of JLG lifts include:
JLG’s lifts offer industry-leading duty cycles that allow for longer periods of operation and faster battery charging.
Some models boast automatic traction control that allows them to work on uneven surfaces inside the warehouse and out in the field.
Increased Fuel Efficiency

If you’re looking for equipment that offers comfort, confidence, and functionality, look no further than telehandlers. These machines include best-in-class cabs and enhanced visibility. JLG’s telehandlers help operators accomplish several tasks with the ideal combination of strength, versatility, and technology.
JLG manufactures telescopic booms that allow straight and direct elevation. They offer the best outreach compared to other brands and can operate on difficult ground conditions. With simultaneous and proportional movements, these booms provide superior driver comfort and safety.
