JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, announced today that it is making the SkyGuard enhanced control panel protection system standard across its portfolio of boom lifts.
JLG will begin equipping its boom lifts with the SkyGuard system as standard equipment on boom lifts ordered in Europe, Australia, and New Zealand beginning in July 2016. The system will become standard equipment in the rest of the world in January 2017.
When activated, the 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.
