Valued at approximately $20.6 million, these vehicles will be delivered to U.S. Army facilities around the globe.

“We are very proud of JLG’s military telehandler programs and our continued commitment and ability to serve the U.S. Army,” said Denny Buterbaugh, JLG’s vice president – government products and programs. “The ATLAS II can reach over obstacles to place loads weighing up to 10,000 lbs (4,536 kg) into trucks or shipping containers.
