McConnellsburg, Pa.-based JLG Industries, Inc. has partnered with Dakota Ag Innovations to provide the complete line of Dakota Shine color restoration products through ServicePlus locations and the JLG dealer network worldwide. Dakota Shine is an environmentally friendly patented product that restores color and luster to machine surfaces, including paint, decals, and plastics.
The Dakota Shine color restoration process uses two products to achieve these results: Dakota Prep, a water-based, biodegradable cleaner that cleans the surface and removes wax build-up, grease, oxidation and grime; and Dakota Shine, which restores color and luster to faded, oxidized surfaces. Dakota Shine is designed to penetrate the surface and restore the pigments to their original appearance. Under normal conditions, the equipment is ready to be used 12 to 24 hours after treatment.
According to Tim Morris, JLG's vice president of North America market development and sales: “ServicePlus [and Dakota Shine] can help our customers overcome the common problem of finding the time and personnel to restore their machines at a reasonable cost. In fact, the surface on a typical 60-foot boom lift can be refinished for under $500. Dakota Shine has also proven to enhance the color and luster of current rental equipment that remains in your fleet. This investment represents an outstanding return on improving the appearance of your rental fleet.”
Dakota Shine surface restoration can be performed at ServicePlus locations in Houston, Atlanta, and McConnellsburg. Companies interested in doing their own restoration can order Dakota Shine products directly from JLG dealers worldwide.
