JLG Industries has added a new generation of rough-terrain (RT) and electric rough-terrain (ERT) scissor lifts in 40 ft. (12 m) and 47 ft. (14 m) models. The new 4069 and 4769 RT/ERT scissor lifts feature enlarged platforms and an 800 lb. (362 kg) capacity to carry more to height, as well as full drive at height capability. The tallest machines in their class, the RT4769 and ERT4769 provide users with access to five-story heights - an industry first. The platforms on the new JLG RT and ERT models are designed to get users closer to the work area while allowing them to bring more people, tools and material to height. The new rough-terrain units can be driven fully elevated, both indoors and out, for greater productivity and efficiency. This allows these lifts to operate along the length of a building at a fixed height, resulting in fewer trips up and down throughout the day. The new platform control box with LCD display on the lifts incorporates new technology that focuses on integrating data that allows operators to better understand the machine's performance and capabilities. It also includes JLG's exclusive LiftSens technology, an evolution of variable tilt, which shows the users the maximum height they can achieve, before they elevate, based on side-to-side and front-to-back tilt and weight in the platform. Like the new 2669 and 3369 RT/ERT models introduced in late 2020, the new 4069 and 4769 RT/ERT scissor lifts come in either diesel/dual fuel engine models with hydrostatic drive (RT) or battery-powered, AC electric drive models (ERT). The ERT models feature regenerative braking, which actively recharges the batteries during machine use.
