JLG Industries Inc., McConnellsburg, Pa., announced the addition of the new FS60 LiftPod to its work fleet. The FS60 has an enclosed platform, 12-foot working height and 6-foot standing height, allowing workers to move hands-free in a 360-degree range of motion. It consists of three lightweight components, each weighing about 50 pounds, for simple assembly and disassembly. It can be carried and moved by one person and when disassembled it fits in the back of a pick-up truck, van or SUV for portability between work sites.
“We listened to our customers and developed the FS60 in response to their requests for a model that can fit through doorways and under eight-foot ceilings,” said Randy Marzicola, director of channel development for JLG Industries. “We also added casters to the back wheels, which further improves the mobility and portability of the lift, while increasing efficiency for our customers.”
The FS60 is powered by an 18-volt drill or an optional power pack for increased flexibility and affordability. It also includes an attachable work tray that holds up to 33 pounds of tools and materials and has a 330-pound rated total capacity. It is designed with an aircraft quality aluminum mast and powder-coated steel base for added strength and durability. It features an inward opening gate and manual emergency descent and is ideal for the educational facility sector, healthcare applications, and office buildings.
