JLG Reconditioning Program
Our Process

Like-new machines in 11 days

Our factory-trained technicians follow strict JLG guidelines and use genuine parts to restore boom lifts and telehandlers to factory-approved, field-ready condition. On average, this process takes 11 days.

Day 1-2

Teardown

The machine is disassembled to the core, and major components are removed for rebuilding or replacement. Only strict OEM processes are what we follow for restoring your equipment to original machine specification.

  • Fluids are drained and turntable bearing is inspected.
  • Engine hood is removed and replaced during reassembly.
  • Boom is disassembled, and all wear pads, chains, shims, ropes and cables removed.
  • Boom is inspected for structural integrity.
Day 3–5

Paint

The boom and machine core are sent to the paint station. All painting is done to new manufacturing standards and processes. JLG uses a state-of-the-art paint mix system to check and maintain the highest paint quality, from primer to drying and curing.

  • Equipment is washed and pre-treated with rust preventative.
  • Booms go through blast operation to take it to bare metal.
  • Parts are primed, painted, treated with clear coat then sent to drying operation.
  • Technicians run quality control checks of pH, temperature, viscosity, color and adhesion.
Day 6–8

Reassembly

Reassembly follows the same guidelines as new equipment manufacturing. Technicians document the work completed at each station in a log book that follows equipment throughout reconditioning.

  • Sub-assembly: install rebuilt boom cylinders, front end components and new wear pads and wire ropes as needed
  • Install new tires and hoses
  • Install swing hub and upper swivel hose
  • Install rebuilt engine, pump, generator and hydraulic tank
  • Install lower boom and counterweight
  • Install upper boom and platform sub-assembly
  • Install engine hood and decals, test all pressure and prep machine for testing
Day 9

Testing

Technicians look for and fix any discrepancies, and follow a detailed checklist to make sure all functions and safety features are up to JLG standards.

  • Test boom angles and axle release
  • Check all safety switches
  • Test all drive and lift speeds
  • Make sure all hardware is secured and installed properly
Day 10

Final Audit

Once the machine is inspected, it goes through a final quality audit before it's ready to ship. The final audit includes a check for fluid leaks and a verification of safety features, speeds and functions. JLG guidelines and new manufacturing processes ensure that every machine passes the required ANSI annual machine inspection and meets other ANSI standards. Each reconditioned machine is backed by a three-year warranty (442 KB PDF).

  • Technicians check hydraulic system by adding a special dye to fluids and using a black light to pinpoint leaks
  • Final check of all machine switches and safety features
  • Check the overall appearance of machine
