ClearSky Smart Fleet - ACTIONABLE DATA FOR REAL-WORLD ROI - by Ara Eckel, Director of Product Management, JLG


ClearSky Smart Fleet

When I explain how and why we developed ClearSky Smart Fleet™, I always mention the need for it to provide actionable data. But what exactly is “actionable data?” And why is it so important?

Actionable data is information that you can easily and effectively use. Throughout our development process, we learned that everybody views actionable data differently. What's actionable for me might not be actionable for you.

That’s why everything on the ClearSky Smart Fleet portal is completely customizable. You can change your entire layout to match your preferences. You can save dashboards in different views. That makes it simple to save a sales dashboard or service dashboard, for example, to see the most relevant data for various elements of fleet management.

And, with the help of ClearSky Fleet Smart’s mobile app, you can directly interact with the machines near you to get that data. Because we’ve standardized connectivity hardware with your new machine purchase, you can simply use your mobile device’s Bluetooth capability to accomplish so many tasks. Here are just a few examples:

Finding the Right Machine. To locate a particular machine, you can simply use the “Detect” feature on the app and light up the machine you’re looking for or beep its horn or both, with the option of an added audio cue. At JLG, we use this capability just like our customers do. We need to account for a specific machine on a lot where hundreds of identical models are stored. Instead of walking from unit to unit and looking at every single serial number, we can use the ClearSky Smart Fleet app to honk the machine’s horn or turn on its lights within seconds.

Machine Status. With the embedded IoT system now integrated into the standard machine control system, insights can be quickly and directly delivered to many more groups across a rental organization than telematics has ever done.  

Say I’m a fuel truck driver, and I show up at a site where I’m supposed to “refuel the telehandler.” But there are 20 of them, and I don’t know which one needs fuel. Another simple yet highly impactful status is if you’ve plugged in your scissor lifts. This quick status check can make or break the productivity of tomorrow for the expensive workforce relying on delivering rent-ready equipment to their customers. This technology tells you within seconds with a visual status color indication. The same goes for a service tech or a branch manager. It’s an example of how we’ve expanded the concept of telematics into real-world applications that provide greater ROI.

Coming Soon: Next-level Fleet Information & Interactivity. Traditional telematics has geofencing capabilities, and typically, those geofences are all shapes and sizes because no two job sites are identical. To geofence multiple machines on a job site, you must first assign a location to each machine individually when it arrives and remove it when it leaves, which is tedious. People tend not to use the geofencing feature simply because of that fact.

To make geofencing easier with ClearSky Smart Fleet, JLG leverages an automated Bluetooth mesh network of interactivity between all units that are present. As machines are delivered, move around a job site and come into contact with each other, they automatically create or join an existing site network which is now filterable. That means our customers can get job-site-level interactions, branch-level interactions and more. The machines create their own site network geofence border that changes from moment to moment as they move around, basically automating the geofencing process.

Online Express. If you’re a JLG owner or operator, you may already be familiar with our Online Express aftermarket e-commerce site. It’s where you go if you want to purchase a part, learn about your machine’s service needs, find parts manuals and so on. Now, we’ve integrated that functionality into ClearSky Smart Fleet.

Say you’re a service technician and you get a diagnostic trouble code of 2634, which refers to issues with a foot switch. What do you do with that info? With ClearSky Smart Fleet, you can click on the knowledge article that accompanies that trouble code. You’ll also get links to the recommended parts to fix the foot switch. You can click on those links and add the parts to your shopping cart right there in the app. This type of intuitive, integrated experience is what ClearSky Smart Fleet is all about. 


Telehandlers Pick-and-Carry in Wind Industry Applications

Working at height is part of the job for wind-energy technicians, who spend much of their workday suspended hundreds of feet above the ground;  equally important is lifting and placing materials during the construction of the wind turbine structures.

For decades, JLG has designed and developed equipment dedicated to helping its customers enhance worksite productivity and safety for a variety of industries, including, fairly recently, the wind-energy industry.

Particularly for the wind industry, JLG offers its high-capacity telehandler line, which includes its JLG® 1644, 1732 and 2733 models, for picking and carrying heavy loads around a work site.


In general, telehandlers are used for lifting and placing materials. On a general construction site, the primary spec people are interested in a telehandler’s reach so they know how high they can lift and place a load. 

In the wind sector, height is also important — but, capacity is the primary spec as it determines how much a telehandler can pick and carry per load. JLG’s high-capacity telehandler line, which complements the company’s traditional telehandler line, is used in industries, such as wind, where operators frequently move very heavy objects.

For example, in wind-farm construction, if the operator wants to move one of the blades, or a piece of the tower, that’s where a high-capacity telehandler would be used. It might come on a truck. The telehandler then unloads it before moving it to the area where it’s needed.

Even though JLG began focusing on the wind industry in 2017 with the introduction of its high-capacity telehandler line, the company’s expertise with other industries laid the groundwork for success.

JLG’s high-capacity telehandler line was designed for the wind-energy and related markets, including oil and gas. You’re going to find the company’s traditional telehandlers on just about every job site where materials are lifted and placed. There was a market in wind for high-capacity telehandlers specifically. It’s a niche market for the brand.

And, you’ll find JLG MEWPs (mobile elevating work platforms), articulating and telescoping boom lifts; electric- and hydraulic-drive scissor lifts; portable personal vertical lifts; low-level access solutions; and telehandlers, in that market as well, doing maintenance on existing structures.


Although the wind industry has a history of its technicians working at height, JLG’s focus is not dedicated solely to the wind. Industries like oil and gas, steel erection, industrial construction and mining also present unique challenges to equipment operators. With a wide range of specialized attachments, JLG’s high-capacity telehandlers can adapt to demanding job sites and replace other traditional machines. Plus, their ability to handle heavy, bulky loads makes them ideal for performing maintenance on other machines in the equipment fleet. 

As the company continues to offer equipment solutions for working at height across the globe, it will continue to improve upon its product line in conjunction with the needs of these marketplaces.

And as far as the wind industry goes, JLG will keep working closely with that constantly growing market, keeping an eye on the wind industry to identify unmet needs and then innovating to evolve the brand’s equipment offerings to deliver solutions that meet those needs.

Safe Use Standard


 ANSI A92.22 & CSA B354.7

This standard governs the safe use of MEWPs by specifying proper application, inspection, training, maintenance, repair and safe operation. One of the main requirements is developing a safe use program to guide MEWP use as it relates to job site safety.

Whats Changed

Step 1:
To develop an effective safe use program that complies with new requirements, it’s important to perform a site risk assessment before starting a job. This assessment should:
  • Define the task, location and timing of the work
  • Inform MEWP selection
  • Evaluate MEWP-related, job-specific and additional risks
  • Identify controls like proper training and rescue planning

Step 2: Once a safety plan has been developed, it should be shared with everyone who will be on site during the work. The updated standards outline new requirements for many roles as they relate to a safe use program.
  • Operator: Is trained and authorized to operate the MEWP
  • Occupant: Has knowledge of MEWP use and safety, including fall protection systems
  • Supervisor: Monitors use of MEWP to ensure safety plan is followed
  • Technician: Performs MEWP maintenance in line with manufacturer’s requirements
