WHITEPAPER: Uptime Matters


Equipment downtime can set you behind schedule and over on budget. Bottom line: Uptime matters.

To keep your fleet up and running efficiently, you need to take care of the machines. One way to do that is by regularly servicing and maintaining your equipment.

Why is that important? Because well-maintained equipment will have a longer lifespan overall, as will its different components.

Equipment care involves several to-do’s, including preventive and predictive maintenance, equipment inspections and replacing parts.

In this whitepaper, we highlight six frequently asked questions about equipment maintenance, parts and service.

The answers to these questions can help you increase the lifecycle of your machines, reduce the total cost of ownership (TCO) and maximize your investments.

Be On the Lookout for These 3 Changes Coming to Rough Terrain Scissor Lifts



One of the biggest benefits of these modernized machines is that today’s JLG RT/ERT lifts offer full drive at height capabilities, allowing operators to work at a fixed height along the length of a building when installing utilities inside or out. Earlier models did not offer this feature, meaning the operator would have to descend, then move the machine to the next work area, then ascend again to continue the work. The result is that these recently introduced JLG models, which allow work at a fixed height, offer exceptional productivity benefits.  

But, full drive at height capabilities isn’t the only new benefit JLG’s updated scissor lifts offer customers. We believe there are three trends that will significantly change machine design in the coming years — 1) higher lifting capabilities, 2) electrification and 3) new technologies, and JLG’s rough terrain (RT) and electric rough terrain (ERT) scissor lifts are already in position to meet the market’s demand.

Let’s take a closer look…

1. Higher lifting capabilities
With building footprints getting narrower and taller, customers are looking for equipment that offers greater lift height. Users also want to bring more materials and people to the work area, which drives the need for higher capacity. 

JLG RT/ERT scissor lifts are well-suited for this type of work because of their large platform. They offer 28-percent more working area than competitive models with class-leading capacities. JLG’s models are designed with zero-platform offset to minimize the distance users must reach to access the work area. And, to navigate through tight spaces more efficiently, these JLG machines are equipped with easy-fold rails, which can be collapsed in three minutes or less.

2. Electrification
Due to an increase in demand for electric-powered lifts globally, when JLG announced its fully redesigned rough terrain scissor line in early 2020, it included both engine-powered RT and electric-powered ERT models in each size class. 

We expect to see electric models continue to gain popularity as battery technology advances and environmental considerations become more and more stringent. For example, when JLG introduced the world’s first all-electric slab scissor lift model, the JLG AE1932 DaVinci® lift in 2021, it was engineered as the first-of-a-kind lift with zero hydraulics, thereby eliminating the potential for leaks, and powered by a single lithium-ion battery that recharges as the lift descends to lengthen the operational time between charges. We believe some of these same market-leading technologies will grow in popularity and that over time customers will request they be included in other models.

3. New technologies
We also see a need in the rough terrain scissor lift market for new technologies to solve the most common job site challenges.

For example, the redesigned JLG RT/ERT lines are equipped with LiftSense™, a standard and exclusive JLG feature, which shows operators the maximum work height that can be achieved before they elevate based on side-to-side and front-to-back tilt, as well as the current capacity in the platform. This means that operators can see if they should take a little bit less material with them or if they need to get to a spot that's a little bit more level on the job site so that they can get the full height — it removes the guesswork that often results in operators having to descend and try again for marked productivity gains. 

New technology on JLG RT models includes a QuikLevel Advanced feature, which automatically levels the machine on side slopes up to 4.5 degrees while allowing the operator to drive at full height under certain conditions. The machine’s sensors monitor platform load, platform height, front axle tilt, rear axle tilt, and chassis tilt, then automatically level the lift based on ground conditions. 

What’s coming next?
As construction activity is accelerating in North America, we anticipate the current strong, steady demand for rough terrain scissor lifts to continue. That’s because, despite utilization varying based on seasonality and concentration of construction activity in and around an area, these machines continue to be common job site tools thanks to their ability to expand users’ capabilities whether working on-slab or off. 

So, what do we see coming next for rough terrain scissor lifts? Like slab models, we are striving for rough terrain scissor lifts to become efficient for use in/around sensitive environments (data centers, hospitals, laboratories, industrial chemical facilities) and in extreme environments (below-freezing or high heat temperatures.

Need to Hoist Materials? Consider Using a Telehandler Instead of a Crane

 


For example, by switching out these tools, telehandlers can be used for more than just lifting applications — they excel at hoisting (and material handling) tasks too when equipped with a boom-mounted lifting lug attachment (also referred to as hooks or clevises). This type of attachment allows operators to put a chain or straps through it to efficiently handle suspended loads (aka hoist materials). 

Because they are purpose-built to move heavy objects with great maneuverability, using a telehandler for this type of material handling work is often more cost-effective than bringing in a crane. Let’s take a closer look at how…

What different considerations go into selecting a telehandler for hoisting or material handling versus lifting?

The most important thing to do before selecting a telehandler for hoisting or material handling is knowing two things: 1) what is the work that needs to be completed, and 2) where will that work be done. 

This starts with calculating the “maximum pick” that the machine will need to handle, which can be done in three steps: 

Identify the maximum weight of the load that needs to be lifted and handled (i.e. how heavy is the heaviest object/material that needs to be picked up). Make sure the telehandler has enough capacity to support all of the lifts.

Figure out the maximum angle the machine needs to be able to lift and place the load (i.e. what’s the furthest up, over and/or out that the telehandler needs to reach). It is important to know how much space is available on the job site for maneuvering and positioning the load. Depending on the site, trade-offs may need to be made when selecting a telehandler’s size versus its capacity. Space restrictions will influence not only the size of the telehandler but also the style. For example, if the machine needs to feed the material from a stationary position, similar to how a crane would perform on-site, a rotating telehandler should be considered. JLG® rotating telehandlers provide 360-degrees of rotation from one spot. To learn more, check out these resources: Rotating Telehandlers: A Unique Equipment Solution and Rotating Telehandlers Lift, Extend and Rotate.

Determine the maximum height that the load needs to be placed (i.e. how high does the load need to be lifted)

Armed with these measurements, users can then refer to machine load charts to guide them in selecting the appropriate telehandler. It is important to note that all telehandler attachments have their own load chart, which should always be referenced before use.

Once a model is chosen, it’s important to consider what attachments are needed to complete the work. Telehandlers are called “tool carriers” for a reason — they can handle a wide range of hoisting and material handling applications because of the large variety of attachments they can be equipped with, from buckets, carriages and truss booms/lift hooks to specialty attachments like tire handlers. 

Understanding the nature of the work to be accomplished and the capabilities of each type of attachment the machine can be fitted with is crucial to safe and efficient use. This means knowing whether a load needs to be picked or placed. Does the job require loose material to be scooped or a load suspended? Does the operator need to grapple loose material or pipes? Answering these questions will help owners/operators select the appropriate size and type of attachments needed.

The final step in selecting a telehandler is to know where the machine will be working and to understand what the job site conditions will be during operation. For example, will the machine be working on undeveloped surfaces like dirt or rocky soil, or on finished surfaces like turf or concrete? This information helps to determine what tires are needed on the machine — foam-filled/solid tires are great for undeveloped terrain, and non-marking tires or turf tires will be needed in developed areas to protect the ground.

Also, consider what options the machine should have to keep operators safe and productive during long hours in the cab. For instance, will he/she need an enclosed cab equipped with heat and air conditioning? Depending on the climate and the time of year, this choice is very important. Will he/she need to work before the sun comes up or after it goes down? If so, getting a model with work lights is necessary. When working in heavily congested areas, beacons should be considered.
