JLG Telehandlers Now Part of Reconditioning Program | Construction News

JLG Industries, Inc. has launched a new telehandler reconditioning program. The program is an extension of JLG’s current reconditioning program for combustion booms ranging from the 40-ft. class to the JLG ultra booms and involves tearing down the machine, inspecting it, replacing components based on wear, reassembling the machine, and repainting it.  The G10 telehandler is the first JLG telehandler available for reconditioning.

“JLG has very strict OEM guidelines that we follow for all of our reconditioned products,” said Todd Earley, JLG sales manager, used equipment, and ground support.  “Our customers expect the same quality from a reconditioned asset as they get from a new machine.  Our scope of work is very detailed, and our reconditioning program is very similar to our new manufacturing program.  In the end, customers receive a machine that has the same reliability as a new machine.”

“JLG is extending its reconditioning program to meet customer demand for stock equipment and customer-owned equipment. Over the past 12-18 months, we’ve seen an increase in demand for reconditioned assets, whether that be customer-owned or stock recons.  A lot of that is being driven by customers’ need to balance out fleets.  Now they have a better price point in the market, with a quality they would expect from JLG,” Earley said.

With JLG's reconditioning program, each machine is blasted, removing the existing layer of paint to take it down to the bare metal and then is primed and repainted.  In addition,  the company takes meticulous care in inspecting, replacing, and rebuilding components, such as the engine, boom pads, hoses, and chains as well as the cab, according to Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries global product director -- telehandlers.

For more information on the program visit JLG at its ConExpo booth #1037 next week.
