JLG upgrades E300 Series electric boom lifts
By Anthony Capkun
JLG announced new and improved features on its E300 series boom lift models. Through improved hydraulic efficiencies, the E300 provides more than 20% more duty cycles, meaning an operator can drive 10.6 km and complete 175 lift cycles on a single charge. The 305 A/hr batteries provide an 18% improvement in recharging time and deliver a lower replacement cost for equipment owners. Other improvements include break-over clearance, smoother swing function, and a multi-digital indicator that displays information such as battery life, machine hours and fault codes. The display will improve troubleshooting and help service technicians diagnose and fix issues more rapidly.
