JLG takes leadership position by standardising SkyGuard® System

Supplier: JLG Industries (Australia)
20 December, 2016

JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, announced that it is taking the lead by making the SkyGuard enhanced control panel protection system standard across the JLG portfolio of Boom Lifts.

When activated, the revolutionary SkyGuard system stops all functions in use at the time, then temporarily reverses most functions that were in use when the system was activated. This reverse functionality is the only feature of its kind in the market.

"Making the Skyguard system standard on our booms is a big step forward for JLG and a real game changer for the access industry. The issue of operator safety is the number one priority for us at JLG and the driver behind many of our product innovations, which is why we feel it's important to offer SkyGuard to our customers as standard equipment, included in the price of the machine."
