JLG Industries has introduced a new generation of rough-terrain (RT) and electric rough-terrain (ERT) scissor lifts in 40-ft and 47-ft models. The new 4069 and 4769 RT/ERT scissor lifts feature an 800-lb capacity to carry more to height, as well as full drive at height capability. The RT4769 and ERT4769 provide users with access to five-story heights.
The platforms on the new JLG RT and ERT models are designed to get users closer to the work area while allowing them to bring more people, tools and material to height. These models deliver 28% more working area and a zero-platform offset. This feature minimizes the distance users have to reach to access work on buildings or other structures.
The new rough terrain units can be driven fully elevated, both indoors and out. This allows these lifts to operate along the length of a building at a fixed height, resulting in fewer trips up and down throughout the day. The RT models are available in both 2WD and 4WD configurations, while the ERT models are available in 2WD.
The new platform control box with LCD display on these lifts incorporates new technology that focuses on integrating data that allows operators to better understand the machine’s performance and capabilities. For example, it is able to provide users a multitude of productivity, terrain, machine health and safety notifications during use.
It also includes JLG’s LiftSense technology, an evolution of variable tilt, which shows the users the maximum height they can achieve, before they elevate, based on side-to-side and front-to-back tilt and weight in the platform.
The new 4069 and 4769 RT/ERT scissor lifts come in either diesel/dual fuel engine models with hydrostatic drive (RT) or battery-powered, AC electric drive models (ERT). The ERT models feature regenerative braking, which actively recharges the batteries during machine use.
