One of the most comprehensive in the industry, unique program restores machines to “like new” condition

Thursday, February 27, 2014
McConnellsburg, Pa. — Feb. 28, 2014 — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a global leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, is offering a new telehandler reconditioning program.  The announcement was made in conjunction with CONEXPO (booth #1037) March 4-8 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.

The program is an extension of JLG’s current reconditioning program for combustion booms ranging from the 40-foot class to the JLG Ultra Booms.  The G10 telehandler is the first JLG telehandler available for reconditioning.

JLG’s reconditioning program is one of the most comprehensive in the industry, according to Todd Earley, JLG Industries sales manager, used equipment, JLG Ground Support.  It involves tearing down the machine, inspecting it, replacing components based on wear, reassembling the machine, and repainting it – essentially restoring the machine to “like new” condition.

“JLG has very strict OEM guidelines that we follow for all of our reconditioned products,” Earley said.  “Our customers expect the same quality from a reconditioned asset as they get from a new machine.  Our scope of work is very detailed, and our reconditioning program is very similar to our new manufacturing program.  In the end, customers receive a machine that has the same reliability as a new machine.”

“JLG is extending its reconditioning program to meet customer demand for stock equipment and customer-owned equipment. Over the past 12-18 months, we’ve seen an increase in demand for reconditioned assets, whether that be customer-owned or stock recons.  A lot of that is being driven by customers’ need to balance out fleets.  Now they have a better price point in the market, with a quality they would expect from JLG,” Earley said.

According to Earley, JLG’s reconditioning program is a leader in the lift and access, construction, and rental industries – thanks largely to scope of the reconditioning work.  For example, each machine is blasted, removing the existing layer of paint to take it down to the bare metal and then is primed and repainted.  The result is a better quality paint job.  For the customer, that means the paint will last longer – and the machine will look better – in the field.

In addition to blasting and repainting, JLG takes meticulous care in inspecting, replacing and rebuilding components, such as the engine, boom pads, hoses, and chains as well as the cab, according to Brian Boeckman, JLG Industries global product director -- telehandlers.

JLG operates reconditioning centers in Bedford, PA, Houston, TX, and Riverside, CA, to serve customers in the U.S. and Canada.  Bedford is the largest facility in terms of size and the number of machines it reconditions.
