JLG Develops New Telehandler Platform

McConnellsburg, Pa.-based JLG Industries has introduced a new ANSI/ITSDF B56.6-2005-compliant personnel work platform to use with its JLG, Gradall, Lull and SkyTrak telehandlers.

The 32-square-foot platform features a 1,000-pound capacity, which comfortably and safely holds two people. Using personnel work platforms, workers on JLG brand telehandlers can be lifted as high as 55 feet on rough-terrain jobsites where access with alternative equipment can be difficult.

JLG's personnel platform features a swing-gate entry with a unique removable front panel for easy entry and exit. The platform is complete with sturdy steel mesh flooring and eight lanyard attachment points. Additionally, the new fork-mounted platform can be quickly installed and securely locked in place.
