JLG Industries Inc. has modified its ES and RT scissor lift lines to improve durability and repairability, and reduce weight for certain models. The platforms and deck extension surfaces for all ES model scissors have been upgraded to diamond plate steel to enhance strength, durability and repairability. A simple-to-use locking foot lever has replaced the rail-mounted locking handles for deploying the extension.
Two models, the 2030ES and 2630ES scissors, have been widened from 30 inches to 32 inches. Accordingly, the model names have been changed to 2032ES and 2632ES. The wider footprint allowed JLG engineers to reduce weight without compromising stability. The result is lighter machines with better weight displacement.
JLG’s entire RT scissor line will now feature steel hoods.
