“We are honored to be named to this list, which demonstrates the originality and innovative design incorporated into this product,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries product director. “The 1500SJ is the first straight boom lift that can take workers up to 150 feet that requires only a weight permit for transport, providing an expansive work area at high elevations.”
