Choose the Scissor that Makes Sense for You

You have options with JLG® scissor lifts. Consider our full range of models, knowing you don’t have to compromise on the attributes that matter to you most.

ES Series

Premium Features
for Enhanced Performance

ES Series scissor lifts offer up to double the battery life than comparable models thanks to their electric drive system. That—combined with faster travel speeds, improved gradeability and fewer leak points—makes them ideal for sensitive work and long shifts, while giving users the confidence that they’ll have enough power to load them onto the truck at the end of the day.

R Series

Value-Based Features
for Rugged Reliability

R Series scissor lifts are perfect for rental thanks to serviceable components and durability-enhancing features like active pothole protection. Arm your fleet with cost-effective scissor lifts that deliver on technology and performance. Complete general construction tasks, or access overhead work during HVAC maintenance, painting or electrical jobs.

  • Available on ES and R Series models
  • Pressure-Based Load Sensing System with Simple No-Load Calibration

  • Allows machine to be calibrated without calibrated weights, so customers can make adjustments in the field
  • Provides accurate readings in cold applications
  • Available on the 4045R
  • Controlled Travel Descent

  • Delivers a smooth descent during travel
  • Protects both the operator and the machine’s components
  • Available on select ES and R Series models
  • Controlled Elevation Descent

  • Improves operator comfort by cushioning the ride when the machine comes to a stop
  • Engages when stopping at height and when returning to the stowed position
  • Available on R Series models
