NEW WHITEPAPER: Augmented Reality Solves 2 Common Job Site Challenges


What if you could radically simplify the sizing and configuring of aerial lifts for your construction projects? And, what if you could instantly access an OEM’s operation and safety manuals, as well as a variety of video content, from the palm of your hand? 

Those are just two of the capabilities offered by the JLG® Augmented Reality app to help your operators better understand and use their machines, part of the company’s growing suite of connected solutions.

This free tool, available for Apple and Android smartphones, enables you to properly select equipment for your projects and configure it with the accessories you need to get your work done efficiently. It also assists with controls familiarization, decal translations and annual inspections, helping your operators work more proficiently. 

The JLG AR app puts focused information that equipment owners, operators and service technicians need at their fingertips, in the field, displayed in useful formats on tools they already own. 

In this whitepaper, we take a closer look at how this technology offers solutions to two of the most common challenges in the construction industry today:

You may have heard the words “circular economy” mentioned recently and wondered why?

It’s a phrase being used in the equipment industry right now to promote the idea of manufacturing or producing machinery in a sustainable or environmentally friendly way. 

It is also the terminology being applied to the concept of recycling or reusing construction machinery to promote ongoing sustainability. Some OEMs (original equipment manufacturers), like JLG, have implemented reconditioning programs, which repair, restore and recirculate existing machines into the market, to meet sustainability targets in the circular economy. 

Equipment reconditioning programs are not new to the industry. In fact, JLG launched its program more than 25 years ago. Yet, there still is a lot of confusion about what it is, and what it is not. 

Let’s take a look at eight frequently asked questions about reconditioned equipment and how JLG’s program benefits the circular economy...

1. What is reconditioned equipment?

To best understand what reconditioned equipment is, it’s important to understand exactly what reconditioning entails. And, that definition differs among OEMs. For some, reconditioning is simply putting new paint and tires on a machine. 

For others, including JLG, reconditioning programs follow strict guidelines to rebuild machines to like-new condition.

2. What is included in the reconditioning process?

The JLG reconditioning program is designed to adhere to the same guidelines as new equipment manufacturing. It is more than just a paint job because repairing and restoring reconditioned machines to their original specifications must be a complete process to give them new life, inside and out.  

To bring back JLG equipment to the initial machine specifications of the model from its original manufacture date, our extensive reconditioning process includes:

  • Units are completely torn down and inspected
  • Major sub-assemblies are verified for structural integrity
  • All components are tagged and re-associated with the original serial-numbered machine
  • Powertrain is inspected and resealed or rebuilt, as needed
  • All wiring harnesses and hydraulic hoses are replaced
  • New wire rope kit is installed

Once a machine is returned to “like new” condition through the reconditioning process, JLG requires that it be able to pass the required ANSI annual machine inspection, which includes a thorough evaluation of four major components (as applicable by model): 1) Electrical system, 2) Hydraulic system, 3) Drive train and 4) Structural components, as well as meet other applicable ANSI standards.  All of JLG’s reconditioned machines come with a standard 3-yr warranty. This commitment to detail ensures that JLG reconditioned units are ready to go straight from the facility to the job site.

3. How long does it take to do a complete machine reconditioning? 

JLG’s reconditioning process and facility are extremely efficient, and a machine can usually be reconditioned in 2-3 weeks. The exact amount of time to recondition a machine depends on the machine itself. Factors that influence this include its size, the condition of the machine and the availability of parts needed to return the equipment to the original specifications of its manufacture date.

4. Does JLG recondition all of its machines?

JLG’s program is currently available on 40 ft and above IC (internal combustion) boom lifts.

5. Is there a limit as to how many times a machine can be rebuilt?

There is no limit to how many times a machine can be reconditioned. That said, over time a machine’s technology and components will become outdated, even obsolete, and at that point, either JLG or our customers may decide that it is no longer feasible to continue to invest in reconditioning the machine. 

6. Who buys reconditioned equipment?

Customers who purchase JLG reconditioned machines are often looking to grow and manage their fleets with lower-cost equipment investments in higher-quality, higher-value products. 

7. How much money can customers save with a reconditioned unit compared with buying a new machine?

Cost savings vary by machine, but it is estimated that a reconditioned machine offers 25-35% cost savings over purchasing new.  

8. Why does JLG offer a reconditioning program?

From new production through reconditioning, JLG is able to deliver the whole spectrum of equipment, helping customers expand their fleets to include the products they want and need — meeting their business goals in every way possible. 

Since its launch in 1997, JLG’s reconditioning program has grown through all economic conditions, regardless of the market conditions (supply chain constraints, looming recession, etc). The JLG reconditioning program, in addition to helping the circular economy by giving second life to JLG machines, is about flexibility. It offers customers many options to create the right fleet mix to meet their specific business needs, particularly in fluctuating market conditions. 

Simply put: It gives customers the opportunity to invest in high-quality reconditioned, like-new JLG stock machines for less than the cost of a new equipment purchase.
