JLG Develops New Personnel Work Platform for Telehandlers

McConnellsburg, PA (February 13, 2007) - JLG Industries, Inc. announced today that it has introduced a new personnel work platform for use with its JLG®, Gradall®, Lull® and SkyTrak® telehandlers. This new attachment provides added versatility and safety to a job site and is compliant with the requirements of ANSI/ITSDF B56.6-2005.

Unlike other more cumbersome platforms, the new fork-mounted unit can be quickly installed and securely locked in place. This attachment provides versatility on the job site and reduces the need for various types of equipment. In the absence of an aerial work platform, the personnel work platform provides a safe approach to lift workers to difficult to reach areas. The use of the personnel work platform on JLG brands of telehandlers allows workers to be lifted as high as 55 feet on rough terrain sites where access with alternative equipment could be difficult.

The thirty-two square foot platform features 1,000-lbs. capacity, which comfortably and safely holds two people. The platform features a swing gate entry with a unique removable front panel for easy entry and exit. The platform is complete with sturdy steel mesh flooring and eight lanyard attachment points.
