JLG Sheet Material Telehandler Attachment

JLG Industries introduced a new sheet material handler to its line of telehandler attachments.

The coupler-mounted attachment can lift up to 3,000 lbs. with a 72-in. maximum fork spread, allowing for heavy and wide materials to be delivered at height.

“JLG continues to expand the versatility of its telehandlers with this new sheet material handler attachment,” said John Boehme, JLG senior product manager. “Operators can confidently lift and place a variety of materials, ensuring they are delivered conveniently and efficiently to the desired location.”

JLG’s Mobile Control App for its R Series scissor line enables users to drive, steer, and load models while in a stowed position from an iOS mobile device.  The app allows operators to have a better view of the jobsite while moving equipment, which improves safety and reduces potential damage to the work environment.
