JLG to Demonstrate LiftPod at NFMT

07 March 2011
McConnellsburg, Pa. (March 8, 2011) — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK], will showcase its LiftPod® FS60 personal portable lift at JLG booth # 2159  during the National Facilities Management & Technology (NFMT) Conference & Expo, which will be held March 15-17 at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Md.  
  
“NFMT draws thousands of facility professionals to Baltimore each year, so we appreciate the opportunity to showcase the FS60 at this year’s event and demonstrate the many ways that our personal portable lift meets the challenges these professionals face,” said Randy Marzicola, director – channel development.  “The FS60 addresses important safety concerns while providing a unit that fits through standard doorways and under eight-foot ceilings, improving job site efficiency and productivity.” 
  
The FS60 combines the portability of a ladder with the stability of a work platform. The unit’s 30-inch base enables operators to move the LiftPod through doorways without having to take it apart. 
  
With an enclosed platform, 12-foot working height and 6-foot standing height, the FS60 allows workers to move hands-free in a 360-degree range of motion. Like the FS80, the FS60 consists of three lightweight components, totaling 130 pounds, for simple assembly – less than 30 seconds – and disassembly. The LiftPod can be carried and moved by one person, and when disassembled it fits in the back of a pick-up truck, van or SUV for portability between work sites. 
  
The LiftPod is powered by an 18-volt cordless drill or an optional Power Pack Kit for ease of elevation. Non-marking rear caster wheels provide added maneuverability. It also includes an attachable work tray that holds up to 33 pounds of tools and materials. With a 330-pound rated total capacity, the FS60 is designed with an aircraft quality aluminum mast and powder-coated steel base for added strength and durability. 
  
NFMT is composed of four sub-events: The flagship, National Facilities Management & Technology Conference & Expo; Maintenance Solutions Expo; Safe Buildings Expo and 
GreenTech Expo. The conference attracts non-residential building owners, facility managers, maintenance engineers, directors of sustainability and planning, operations and management professionals and offers more than 115 educational sessions, valuable networking opportunities and an expansive exhibit hall.
