MCCONNELLSBURG, PA — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, announced the JLG® 315G and 615G utility vehicles have received a 2017 Editor’s Choice Award from Rental magazine.
The 315G and 615G were chosen as award winners based on several factors, including innovation, utility for the rental market, and audience engagement. According to the publication, products chosen for this honor are those that construction professionals have shown active interest in. “This year’s winning products represent the best of what leading manufacturers have to offer for today’s rental inventories,” said Jenny Lescohier, editor of Rental.
JLG introduced the utility vehicles in March 2017, and was the first manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers to break into this market. The three-seat 315G and six-seat 615G gas-powered vehicles are manufactured through a partnership agreement with Arctic Cat and feature a 10-inch ground clearance with four-wheel drive and an independent suspension that keeps all four wheels on the ground during travel for superior traction and balance. The vehicles boast class-leading cargo capacities with a 1,000 pound capacity cargo box and 1,500 pound towing capacity.
“These vehicles equip our customers with a durable and efficient means of moving people and materials around large construction sites, convention centers, event venues, and commercial business parks,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries director of global strategy and business development. “Rental customers will also gain the added peace of mind that comes with knowing their investment is backed by JLG’s comprehensive parts, service, and support network.”
