JLG Launches Mobile App to Drive Scissors, Debuts Two New Scissor Lift Models at ARA Show

JLG Industries, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary year at the 2019 ARA Show in Anaheim on Feb. 18-20, introduced a variety of new technologies on its MEWPs and telehandlers, including a mobile app to drive scissor lifts in the stowed position, as well as two new R Series scissor lift models.

The new 2632R lift allows operators to drive through a single doorway and work indoors at a height of 26 ft. The new 3246R is ideal for applications that require a lightweight machine with a 32-ft. platform height. The models also feature variable tilt technology, which allows operators to elevate to limited heights when working on slight slopes, maximizing the work envelope.

Other products and technologies featured at this year’s show include operator identification control, virtual reality training, and Enhanced Detection System (EDS) updates.

Here are some highlights from the products at the booth:

Mobile Control App: The industry-first app enables users to drive, steer, and load R Series scissor lifts while in a stowed position from an iOS mobile device. The app is available as an option on new R Series scissor lifts or to purchase as an aftermarket option for existing machines. In testing, it was proven that the learning curve to use the app to move the machine around the job site took only minutes, even for inexperienced operators.

Virtual Reality Training: JLG AccessReady XR provides virtual reality-based training for operators including controls familiarization, machine operation, and advanced spatial awareness challenges. There is a boom package currently available for purchase with a scissor option coming later this year.

ClearSky Access Control: This optional safety tool allows rental companies to safeguard their machines and it adds a layer of additional protection for end users by preventing unauthorized personnel from accessing equipment. Machine operators receive a unique ID number or smart card that allows them to access only the equipment they are authorized to operate.

Enhanced Detection System (EDS): EDS is an evolution of the existing JLG Soft Touch System, which uses proximity switches to stop a machine when it makes contact with an object or structure. EDS uses innovative ultrasonic technology to sense when an object is nearby – first slowing, then stopping the machine before it makes contact.

SmartLoad Technology: Currently available for the 1644 and 1732 high capacity telehandlers, SmartLoad Technology will soon be an available option for all JLG telehandlers. SmartLoad features an advanced bundle of three integrated technologies that work together to increase operator confidence and optimize productivity.
