The new JLG 860SJ HC3 for heavy loads at great heights has arrived in Germany
JLG Industries, Inc., and the leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telescopic material handlers, delivers 860SJ HC in Germany.
Professional access technology has had a successful home at Rehm in Munderkingen for more than 30 years. Well-known companies successfully carry out their construction projects with the company’s working platforms, whether purchased or rented. Today, the long-established Baden-Württemberg company has a wide range of self-propelled working platforms with working heights from 6.60 m up to 43.15 m. The range includes platforms with electric, hybrid or diesel drive. JLG’s current range at Rehm includes the SL 153-22 DSP scissor lift, the Toucan 10 E-L and Toucan 12E+ vertical mast lifts and the 460SJ, 1200 SJP and 1350 SJP telescopic lifts.
“And yet,” says Uwe Rehm, Managing Director at Rehm Arbeitsbühnen, “we were always looking for another machine that would close the gap between our existing telescopic platforms up to 26.3 m working height and those with 38.5 m working height. A machine that also has something special and is made for heavy loads at great heights. That’s exactly what we found in the new JLG 860SJ HC3.”
Lifting with new capacity: up to 450 kg payload on the platform.
With the new all-wheel heavy-duty telescopic platform, Rehm is up to date with today’s requirements. The new, powerful JLG 860SJ HC3 meets the increasing demand for more lifting capacity. In addition, this high-performance boom has maximum horizontal and vertical reach when difficult work around corners is required or confined work sites present a challenge. “We have had JLG machines in our rental programme since 1999. The decisive factor for choosing the new HC3 type was the increased payload of up to 450 kg. This is a real asset for the customers and for us,” explains Uwe Rehm.
The HC3 strength lies in the “high capacity”, the “3” stands for three different platform loads to which the machine automatically adjusts. Working space and possibilities are expanded with the 860SJ HC3 for more flexibility and significant time savings: with its high load capacity in the entire working area, up to three people including tools can be transported in one operation. For safe working at height, various components are reinforced for stability and durability purposes. All HC3 models also have an automatic load sensor (“load-sensing system”) that limits the range of use if the platform is overloaded. The control panel has also been improved. The displays detect the ambient light conditions and adjust the brightness accordingly for better visibility. And if the machine reaches the maximum side tilt of more than 5 degrees, a tilt alarm warns the operator.
A successful collaboration in every aspect.
Rehm Arbeitsbühnen has been working closely with JLG for over 20 years and trusts the continuous product innovations that JLG develops as a pioneer in the industry. “We are pleased that our customers always find the right, convincing solution for their numerous tasks in our range. JLG access platforms are extremely reliable, there are hardly any repairs or breakdowns. And regardless of whether it’s technology or sales, the contact is very cordial and reliable. And with the JLG 860SJ HC3, we already have the next rental trump card in our hands,” says Uwe Rehm. As a long-standing customer, Rehm was one of the first to receive the new JLG 860SJ HC3. For Ute Schnalzger, Sales Manager Rental JLG Germany, this is the best basis for continuing the long-standing Rehm business relationship in the future.
