JLG launches RS Boom Lifts
Designed specifically for markets like India, the RS boom lifts are available as the 18RS and the 24RS, delivering 18 m and 24 m of platform height.

JLG, one of the world's largest access equipment providers has launched the RS Boom lifts at bC India. "JLG is absolutely committed to growth in Asia," said Frank Nerenhausen, President, JLG Industries, and Executive Vice President, Oshkosh Corporation. "JLG is excited to launch the RS boom lifts to the region. The bC India event also provides an important venue to showcase a variety of other JLG products that demonstrate to an international audience our continued interest in safety and productivity on the job site."

Designed specifically for markets like India, RS boom lifts are available in two models: the 18RS and the 24RS, delivering 18 m and 24 m of platform height. Both models feature a streamlined design with fewer parts, making them easier to maintain without sacrificing performance. Additionally, the lifts offer a platform capacity of 227 kg, with a horizontal reach of 13.1 m and 17.8 m for the 18RS and 24RS respectively. The RS booms are also the lightest machines in their class, with the 18RS weighing 7,348 kg and the 24RS weighing just 10,568 kg, which is 4,300 kg lighter than similar 24 m telescopic boom lifts. The RS boom lifts are engineered to fit into a 40-ft shipping container, providing significant savings in transportation costs and contributing to a lower total cost of ownership.

In addition to the new RS boom lifts, JLG also displayed a variety of other products such as:

T10E: Vertical boom lift - ideal for facilities maintenance, electricians, plumbers and warehousing. The T10E features non-marking tires with solid cast steel rims and a passive pothole protection device. The 1.6 m articulating jib provides additional functionality and access for hard to reach places. In addition, the T10E has a platform capacity of 200 kg, a maximum platform height of 8.10 m, and working height of 10.10 m.

1500SJ: The 1500SJ is the first boom lift that elevates operators to 150 ft. It includes a telescopic jib that extends up to 25 ft for additional vertical and horizontal reach. In addition, the 1500SJ delivers industry-leading terrain capability and access to more work with the industry's best work envelope.

Standard steel hoods provide improved durability, reduced cost of ownership and increased long-term value. In addition, operators receive key information with new graphic LCD displays in the platform to further increase ease of operation.
