JLG Introduces 6RS Electric Scissor Lift

JLG Industries, Inc., McConnellsburg, Pa., introduced the 6RS, the newest model in the RS Series of electric scissor lifts, for the Asia market. The 6RS complements the 10RS, which was introduced last October at the 2011 Beijing International Construction Machinery Exhibition & Seminar (BICES).

With a platform height of 6 meters (19.7 feet) and a 227-kg (500.5-pound) capacity, the 6RS uses a direct electric drive to deliver duty cycles similar to the ES Series. Passive pothole protection eliminates all moving parts in the pothole protection system to reduce repair and maintenance cost. The lift uses four hydraulic hoses and offers an easily accessible battery storage area.

The 6RS has the ability to traverse grades of up to 25 percent. It also features controls similar to the ES, for ease of training and automatic traction control for optimal maneuverability. A multifunction digital indicator (MDI display), which simplifies battery evaluation and fault diagnosis is also included.

The 6RS will be available in late spring 2012.
