JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and the leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, announced its exhibit at bauma CONEXPO AFRICA 2018, displaying a large array of JLG equipment.

bauma CONEXPO AFRICA is an international trade fair for construction machinery, building material machines, mining machines and construction vehicles and will be held on March 13 to 16 in Johannesburg, South Africa. Eazi has been a distributor for JLG since 2010 and displayed an array of JLG equipment at its stand Outdoor Area OS1.

The 4017RS telehandler offers added comfort, improved serviceability and a lower cost of ownership. The 4017RS is constructed with proven components, such as Dana Axles, making it an attractive, cost efficient and productive addition to fleets. The 4017RS offers a lift capacity of 4 tonnes and has a maximum lifting height of 17 m.

Boom lifts are represented by the JLG 1350SJP – a diesel telescopic boom lift that offers an impressive working height of 43.3 m and a gradeability of 45%. Also on show is the new JLG 520AJ with a working height of 18 m and a working outreach of 10.65 m, and the JLG 800AJ which offers a working height of 26.46 m and a working outreach of 15.74 m. Made from high quality steel, JLG’s articulating boom lifts can lift up to 450 kg. JLG articulating boom lifts are equipped with DuraTough or steel hoods, which is why they are extremely durable and a valuable asset in any equipment fleet.

Scissors lifts are represented by the JLG 260MRT – a diesel-operated, rough-terrain scissor. Equipped with a narrow 1.75 m wide chassis, the 260MRT will fit into spaces other scissors cannot. The large platform has a capacity of 567 kg, which helps increase productivity on job sites. As a standard, the 260MRT is equipped with four-wheel drive, offering enhanced traction.

Electric scissors are represented by the 2646ES and the 1930ES. Equipped with direct electric drive, the scissor lifts offer class-leading duty cycles. With a narrow 0.76m width the 1930ES offers quick and seamless access through standard doorways, while the 2646ES offers a larger platform at 1.12 m X 2.50 m. The JLG Series of ES Scissors is designed with only two hoses, reducing potential leakage and reducing time spent on maintenance.

Another electric product on display is the Toucan 12E. Providing a working height of 12.65 m, a working outreach of 6,05m and a platform capacity of 200 kg, this product is ideal for maintenance applications. The immediate response AC drive offers greater torque and efficiency. With a very narrow base and a precise control system, the product is perfect for work in narrow spaces.

Lastly, the range is complemented by a towable boom, the JLG T350, which offers a horizontal outreach of 6.15 m and a platform capacity of 227 kg. JLG towable boom lifts can be delivered with a gasoline engine or an electric motor. Standard air and waterlines to the platform enhance usability for the operator. The standard accessory in the platform accommodates a generator, air compressor or pressure washer.

“Eazi has proven to be a strong partner for us in the region,” comments Ian Hume, Sales Director for JLG in the Middle East, Africa and India. “Their presence at bauma CONEXPO AFRICA reinforces their market leadership through the exhibit of so many JLG products, catering for all types of applications.”

Larry Smith, National Sales Executive at Eazi Access, agrees that bauma CONEXPO AFRICA is a key industry event to attend. “We are very excited to bring our range of JLG machines to the expo. Safety is a top priority across all of our industries, and the expo gives us an ideal opportunity to engage with attendees and other industry role players around safety.”

“We always look for ways to connect with customers so that we can share our solutions and show them how we can help them improve productivity and on-site efficiencies, enable cost savings, and achieve greater safety within their business activities. By partnering with JLG for this event, we can have meaningful conversations with both current and potential customers and really engage with them about their construction and mining on-site needs,” concludes Smith.
