JLG DEBUTS 742 TELEHANDLER AT CONEXPO

Monday, March 6, 2017

Las Vegas — March 7, 2017— JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, introduced the 742 telehandler at Gold Lot booth #G3946 during CONEXPO 2017.

The 742 telehandler offers a 7,000 pound maximum lift capacity and multiple powertrain options to suit a wide range of jobsite applications and oil change intervals which can be extended to 1000 hours which helps lower cost of ownership.

“The new JLG® 742 telehandler introduces a precision gravity lowering system to the JLG family of telehandlers,” said John Boehme, JLG Industries product manager, telehandlers. “Using this system allows the 742 to rely on hydraulic power to raise the telehandler boom, using gravity to lower it, thus providing the operator with better, more precise control and increasing the machine’s efficiency.” According to Boehme, JLG plans to incorporate this new technology across its entire line of telehandlers later this year.

Like other JLG telehanders, the 742 offers multiple benefits, including:

  • Enhanced operator comfort—spacious cab, intuitive single joystick, and integrated arm rest
  • Lower total cost of ownership—extended service intervals, easy-to-access parts, and durable components for fewer maintenance requirements
  • Increased operator confidence—rear axle stabilization (RAS) that automatically switches the machine from a 3-point stance to a 4-point stance, improving handling in tough environments, precision gravity lowering system, optional reverse sensing system, reverse camera, and improved visibility from the cab
  • Versatility— a wide range of attachments from which to choose.

“This latest model expands our current range of telehandlers, reinforcing JLG’s commitment as an access equipment industry leader to provide our customers with a dynamic product line to meet their ever-changing needs,” said Boehme.
