McConnellsburg, Penn., October 30, 2008 - JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company, and leading manufacturer of telescopic material handlers, announced today that it will launch a new family of common attachments for all three telehandler brands available in the Americas. JLG offers multiple attachments to increase the application flexibility of its telehandlers offering.
"JLG is setting an industry standard by providing a single family of attachments that utilize a common, quick attach coupler across all three telehandler product lines. We're the first to make this investment to increase commonality and fleet cross-utilization so customers can maximize their fleet flexibility," said Brian Boeckman, JLG's product parent for telehandlers. "This change will simplify attachment ordering and stocking for our customers and provide a full range of productivity enhancing attachments for all our handler models."
This new family of attachments includes a grapple bucket, an eight-foot tower and a fork-mounted work platform. In addition, a variety of material buckets, truss booms and carriages of varying sizes and fork options are also offered.
JLG's compact telehandlers are not impacted by this change. This series continues to be offered with its own line of application specific attachments.
