JLG Expands ES Series with the New ES4046 Electric Scissor Lift

JLG has added a new machine, the ES4046 Electric Scissor Lift, to its fleet.

According to the company, this product provides maximized performance capabilities, implements application-driven design, and offers full lifecycle support for its operators.  

“This model completes the JLG family of ES Series scissors, and the added value isn’t just with the updated specs,” explained Bob Begley, JLG director of product management.

Begley said that JLG’s ClearSky Smart Fleet comes standard with the new lift, and the, “…future-focused design supports facilities’ daily tasks by providing efficiency and enhancing battery life.” 

To make the user experience even better, JLG incorporated customer feedback to enhance key areas of the product, such as fold-down rails for ease of use and maneuverability.

Maximized performance is exemplified with over 50% more duty cycles than the previous R4045 Electric Scissor Lift, as well as incorporation of parts commonality, fewer hoses and fittings and a single lift cylinder, which results in reduced maintenance needs.

The ES4046 is the highest ES Series scissor, measuring at 39’ platform height indoors (up to 28.5’ outdoors), while simultaneously being the lowest gross-weight scissor in its class.  

This future-facing, application-driven design includes a zero turning radius which provides access to narrow aisles and tight overhead spaces.

In 2024, JLG will also introduce a lithium-ion battery option to offer more efficiency, enhanced battery life, fast charging, and a lower lifetime cost of ownership.

Operators also can add optional features such as CleanGuard leak containment system for working on sensitive flooring, a 900-watt inverter to charge tools, and SkySense enhanced detection system that helps protect workers and property.  

ClearSky Smart Fleet helps to make fleet tracking easier and provides full lifecycle support.

JLG offers responsive on-site service and technical support from experts, and continues to provide a plethora of training options for operators, supervisors, and service technicians. 

“Specifically designed to meet the demands of the worksite of the future, the ES4046 Electric Scissor Lift was built with new power options and advanced technologies in mind,” adds Begley.

Begley continued, “This scissor lift will continue to evolve as operator needs change, to expand jobsite capabilities and continue to deliver the best in productivity, efficiency and safety.”
