JLG Industries this week introduced the RS Series of electric scissorlifts — the 1932RS and the 3248RS at The Rental Show in New Orleans.

With platform heights of 19 feet and 32 feet and capacities of 500 pounds and 705 pounds respectively, the 1932RS and 3248RS utilize direct electric-drive motors designed to deliver industry-leading duty cycles. Passive pothole protection eliminates all moving parts in the pothole protection system, to significantly reduce repair and maintenance cost. The use of only four hydraulic hoses greatly reduces the chance of leaks and an easily accessible battery storage area further ensures ease of maintenance. Both models have the ability to traverse grades of up to 25 percent.

“The JLG 1932RS and JLG 3248RS will appeal to those who seek a service-friendly machine that delivers value without sacrificing performance and quality,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries global product director. “Both models can be used in a variety of applications, and their innovative, rugged design makes them very reliable.”

Both lifts include a multifunction digital indicator , which simplifies battery evaluation and fault diagnosis. In addition, the lifts feature controls similar to the ES Scissor, for ease of training and automatic traction control for optimal maneuverability. Fold-down guardrails on the 3248RS enable access through standard double doorways or under low obstructions. The 1932RS and the 3248RS will be available in late spring 2012.
