JLG Industries will showcase its lat-
est product innovations for audiences
from Europe, Africa and the Middle
East at Intermat.
Of particular interest to visitors will
be the new hybrid-powered boom lift,
a new rough terrain scissor lift, new
mid-size boom lifts, a new compact
crawler and the recently launched RS

A hybrid telescopic boom lift, the H340AJ, will represent
the soon-to-be launched series of hybrid machines.
According to JLG, the H340AJ is the industry’s first four-
wheel AC drive.
For outdoors, each machine benefits from the power and
durability of a diesel machine with low emissions and op-
erational savings. However, for working inside or in re-
stricted areas, the boom lift is quickly switched to battery
power, with the same working performance.
The RS telehandler is an interesting concept. Part of
the RS line launched in 2014, it is designed specifically for
the rental markets in Europe/Africa/Middle East (EAME),
Latin America and Asia.
These machines were developed to meet the rental
industry’s demands for simple ownership, clean design and
Visitors will be interested to see the world debut of the
company’s X26J Plus compact crawler boom spider lift at
Intermat. So new, there are no photographs available at
It will be the largest model in the current range, but
still only 1 m wide and 2 m high in transport mode.
It has 249 kg of unrestricted platform capacity, yet still
provides 30% more reach than its predecessor model. The
improved electric motor provides 20 percent more torque
and 43 percent more speed.
Established just 5 years ago, when the Xcentric ripper was
displayed at Bauma for the first time, the company has
continued to grow. With many hundreds of units sold
around the world.
Although the company has nothing new to display at
Intermat, the company did tell Contractors World that
the product on display is much more advanced than that
shown 5 years ago.
The range is under continuous development as engi-
neering solutions advance and customer feed back is taken
into consideration, such as all components are made from
castings for extra strength.
Today, there are 9 models to suit excavators from 8 tons
up to 150 tons, and customers
mention increases in production
by a factor 3 to 5.
And things are only going to
get better for the company as they
have reached an agreement with
Komatsu to sell the attachment
through their outlets worldwide.
There will also be a bucket
crusher on the display, but the
company was not saying any more.
That is one we will be following up
