JLG Industries, leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, has won the Electrical Construction & Maintenance magazine’s Construction Equipment category in its annual Product of the Year competition for the third consecutive year. A panel of judges representing electrical professionals from the engineering, contracting, plant facilities and maintenance industries selected the X1000AJ after reviewing 155 entries across 37 categories.

“We are honored to be recognized once again by this respected publication,” said Randy Marzicola, director of channel development, JLG Industries. “The enhanced reach capacity and stability of the X1000AJ allows operators to safely and confidently expand their work envelope on the jobsite.”

As a category winner, the X1000AJ will not compete for the 2019 Product of the Year Platinum, Gold and Silver awards, which will be determined through an online readers’ poll and announced in EC&M’s August issue. All entries will be featured in the print tabloid showcase, scheduled to mail with the April issue of EC&M and May issue of Electrical Wholesaling.

The X1000AJ offers a 56-foot up-and-over work envelope and 54-foot horizontal outreach. One-touch, self-leveling and multi-position outriggers provide added stability. The X1000AJ delivers added power options with a 76V advanced technology 2.0 lithium-ion battery for quiet indoor operation and a Kubota D902 diesel engine for outdoor jobs. Also, the X1000AJ has a compact stowed length with the ability to fit through standard double doors. Its forklift pockets and heavy-duty lifting hooks facilitate transport.

The machine is ANSI-compliant and meets the most up-to-date A92.20 ANSI standards.
