JLG Industries Inc is offering a new family of common attachments for its telehandler product lines under the JLG, SkyTrak and Lull brands in the Americas.

"We hope to have all models converted to the new style by January," says Brian Boeckman, who is overseeing the changes. Attachments include a grapple bucket, an eight-foot tower, a fork-mounted work platform, material buckets, truss booms, carriages and fork options.

The commonality of the quick-attach coupler and associated attachments for the telehandler brands increases flexibility and simplifies an end-user's needs. "Previous to this change, JLG had distinct coupler and attachment offerings for each of its telehandler brands," he notes in a statement. "Moving forward, customers will be able, for example, to use an attachment from a SkyTrak on a JLG-branded telehandler."

While impacting only JLG-made telehandlers, "we hope that the rest of the industry will follow our lead in establishing this standard," Boeckman observes. "We're the first to make this investment to increase commonality and fleet cross-utilization so customers can maximize their fleet flexibility."

The change eases attachment ordering and stocking for customers and provides a full-range of productivity-enhancing attachments for applicable models.

The program does not involve the JLG-made telehandler products in Europe, Asia or Australia or any JLG-made compact telehandler models. McConnellsburg-based JLG continues to offer a line of application-specific attachments for its compact telehandlers.

"A large portion of our attachments are built in our Orrville, Ohio facility," which occupies 333,000 square feet (30,000 sqm), Boeckman says. "Others are sourced from suppliers in a variety of locations."
