JLG Launches Fluid Analysis Service to Enhance Equipment Performance

JLG Industries, McConnellsburg, Pa., has announced the introduction of a Fluid Analysis Program for JLG customers of telehandlers and aerial work platforms in North America. This service is designed to complement JLG’s existing Ground Support efforts that help keep JLG equipment ready and productive. Fluid analysis is a preventive maintenance activity under the recently launched JLG Extended Warranty Program, but can also be used independently.

The fluid analysis program aims to maximize equipment reliability, extend oil drain intervals, extend equipment and component life, and increase resale value.

“Our customers are continuing to focus on reducing operating costs and maximizing uptime,” said Chris Mellott, JLG Industries vice president Ground Support. “This testing procedure allows equipment owners to evaluate the status of their equipment and thus proactively schedule service or replace components prior to their failure.”

JLG test packages are available for engine oils and coolants, non-engine oils and hydraulic systems. JLG also offers a selection of sampling equipment and supplies through its Aftermarket Parts Team.

JLG uses laboratories in Houston, Texas; Edmonton Alberta; Indianapolis, Ind.; and Salt Lake City, Utah, to help expedite the testing process. To learn more about JLG’s Fluid Analysis Program, contact JLG Aftermarket Parts at 1-877-JLG-LIFT.
