LGMG introduces new MEWPs to the US
By Euan Youdale17 March 2023
LGMG is presenting 11 aerial platforms at ConExpo this week, including its first vertical mast list in North America, along with two telescopic booms and an electric scissor series making their debut on the continent.
The M2640JE (M0810JE) mast lift has a maximum working height of 32ft 10in (10m) and offers a width of 3ft 3in (1m) and a stowed length of 8ft 6in (2.6m) for easy transport. Its platform dimensions are 39in x 28in (0.98m x 0.72m), offering a capacity of 440 lbs (200kg), which allows two people to work indoors at the same time and one person outdoors.
The 10ft 6in (3.2m) jib can move 130° vertically - up 70° and down 60°, offering a larger working range. The maximum up-and-over clearance of 21ft 8in (6.6m) allows the machine to cross higher barriers. Zero tail-swing, full-height driving, compact design, and its light weight make the machine easy to maneuver in tight spaces and transport.
Telescopics on show
The company is also showing its latest telescopic boom lifts; the battery powered T65JE (T20JE) and diesel engine driven H-series T85J-H (T26J-H). This is the first time for the two new telescopic boom series to be introduced to the American market.
The whole series of four is powered by 100% maintenance-free, large capacity lithium batteries with super-long battery life, featuring zero-emission, noiseless, energy-saving and friendliness.
The T85J-H (T26J-H) was launched in late 2022, together with other three H-series models, the T65J-H (T20J-H), T72J-H (T22J-H) and T92J-H (T28J-H), with working heights ranging from 71ft 6in to 97ft 9in (21.8 to 29.8 m).
All machines can rotate 360° continuously to expand the working scope and is perfect for varying working conditions, especially the outdoor applications.
All the new telescopic models use the full-time floating axels, offering higher efficiency and safety in all terrains. Max. 5° tilt angle of the chassis and 45% gradeability allow the wheels to conform to the ground when passing the hard, uneven terrain.
Among the boom lifts on display also include two articulating models: the lead-acid battery powered A45JE (A14JE) and a new diesel engine driven model AR45J-H (AR14J-H), featuring a dual capacity design of 661/992 pounds (300/450kg).
Next gen scissors
LGMG also presented its new generation electric scissor lifts at the Conexpo, marking the entrance of these models officially onto the American market.
The new offerings at the show include four lead-acid battery powered models S1932E, S2632E, S3246E, and S4650E. The efficiently electric drive system provides longer lasting performance and 25% gradeability.
Another two scissor lifts on offer include the SR2669D (SR0818D), a dual fuel rough terrain lift, which can be powered using gasoline or LPG, and a diesel engine driven model, the SR5390D (SR1623D), which can provide high power and efficiency. Both the two models have a large work platform with dual extension decks, offering increased productivity.
