Introduced at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2017, the JLG 1532R electric scissor lift is 32 in. wide, allowing it to work in confined spaces and navigate indoor areas. The lift has a maximum working height of 15 ft and a capacity of 600 lb. Also on display at the triennial equipment show was JLG’s new 4045 electric scissor lift, which is only 45 in. wide and boasts a maximum working height of 40 ft indoors, 28 ft outdoors. The 4045 has forklift pockets built into the frame, allowing for it to be easily loaded and unloaded with standard forks. Both lifts feature all-steel platforms and component trays.
