NEW EXTENDED WIRE ROPE REPLACEMENT INTERVALS HELP JLG CUSTOMERS REDUCE MAINTENANCE COSTS, INCREASE UPTIME AND IMPROVE TOTAL COST OF OWNERSHIP

Monday, November 14, 2016

McConnellsburg, Pa. — November 15, 2016 — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, has extended the length of its mandatory wire rope and sheave replacement interval from eight to 12 years, provided the total number of machine hours does not exceed 7,000 hours. The extended intervals apply to the following JLG® boom lift models, available globally: 600S, 600SJ, 600SC, 600SJC, 601S, 660SJ, 660SJC, 680S, 800S, 810SJ, 860SJ, 1100S, 1100SB, 1100SJP, 1200SJP, 1350SJP, 1500SJ, and 1850SJ.

“Wire rope replacement is one of the largest costs a fleet owner will incur over the life of a boom lift,” said Paul Kreutzwiser, JLG Industries global category director for aerial work platforms. “Although highly variable, typical wire rope replacement jobs can cost fleet owners thousands of dollars per job. By increasing the length of the replacement interval, we are reducing maintenance costs and contributing to a lower total cost of ownership.”

These longer replacement intervals can also increase rental income for customers by keeping booms in service for longer periods of time over the life of the machine. Additionally, customers should realize increased resale values attributed to these extended intervals.
