JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, announced today that it will discontinue the manufacturing of its Lull telehandler product line. Beginning in 2015, the Lull 644E-42, 944E-42 and 1044C-54 Series II will no longer be part of the JLG telehandler portfolio.
“The market for Lull telehandler models has been in decline for the last several years, which combined with increased cost to comply with new EPA engine standards, led us to the decision to discontinue the product line,” said Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries global product director for telehandlers. “Our comprehensive telehandler portfolio remains solid, however, and we believe there are significant models across our JLG line of equipment that will support the shift for our customers beyond 2015.”
JLG will continue to provide support for Lull machines in the field with parts and service and manufacture the SkyTrak and JLG branded telehandlers.
