JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, will feature two new R Series scissor lifts at the ARA Show, February 18-20 in Anaheim, CA (Booth #5441). The 2632R and 3246R are built for rugged reliability and designed around affordability and serviceability.
The 2632R offers several well-known features of the R Series, with an outdoor capability of 20 ft. This ANSI 92.20 compliant lift allows operators to drive through a single doorway and work indoors at a platform height of 26 ft.
The 3246R is set apart from the competition as the lightest lift in its class. Also ANSI 92.20 compliant, the 3246R is ideal for applications that require a lightweight machine with a 32-ft. platform height.
The entire family of R Series slab scissor lifts features intuitive technologies that differentiate them from the competition. Among the innovations, customers will appreciate the exclusive variable tilt technology, which allows operators to elevate to limited heights when working on slight slopes, maximizing the work envelope.
“We work closely with our customers to help design machines that meet and exceed their expectations,” says Rafael Nuñez, JLG Senior Product Manager for Scissor, Vertical and Low-Level Access Lifts. “These two new lifts in our R Series fill out the core of our affordable line of hydraulically-driven scissors, which have been optimized to offer lower part replacement costs over the life of the unit. The new scissors complement our premium line of electric drive machines, which have a great reputation among rental customers and end users.”
The 2632R and 3246R contain benefits common to other units in the R Series, including:
- A reliable and simple pothole protection system with a single limit switch and harness, along with fewer moving parts for reduced service requirements
- Easier access to internal machine components for simplified servicing
- Zero-turn radius, improving maneuverability
- Variable tilt technology with visual indicator, allows for work on slight slopes
- Intuitive and comfortable controls that are common within the line
- An all-steel platform, steel component trays and recessed ground control panel for long-term machine durability
The R Series shared design allows for easy service and maintenance along with commonality of parts. These benefits allow JLG to deliver machines that are intuitive for operators and simple to work on for technicians, in addition to simplifying training and operational efficiency.
These customer-inspired models will be available in the coming months, complementing the successful 1932R and 4045R scissors, which were released over the last 3 years.
