JLG debuts two new scissors

JLG Industries, Inc. has debuted two new scissor lifts, the electric-drive ES2646 and the hydraulic-drive R2646. Both units feature a platform height of 26 feet, 1,200 pounds of platform capacity and can be used both indoors and out.

The new ES2646 model is available with JLG’s optional CleanGuard leak containment system for work on sensitive flooring and the new R2646 is equipped with active pothole protection that provides increased ground clearance when working on demanding terrain. Both models share a common chassis and platform and feature variable tilt. They can also accomodate a range of options and accessories. 

“With a wide variety of jobs to be done, the 20 percent  increase in capacity of the ES and R2646 models, as compared to competitive models in the size class, allows scissor lift operators to carry more materials, like pipes and panels, as well as tools such as welders, to the work area,” noted Bob Begley, director of product management for JLG scissor lifts, vertical lifts and low-level access lifts. “This means that overhead tasks can be completed quicker and more efficiently.”
