JLG Helping to Reduce Maintenance Costs for Owners

JLG announced earlier this month that they’ve extended the length of its mandatory wire rope and sheave replacement interval from 8 to 12 years, provided the total number of machine hours does not exceed 7,000 hours.

Says Paul Kreutzwiser, JLG Industries global category director, “Wire rope replacement is one of the largest costs a fleet owner will incur over the life of a boom lift…although highly variable, typical wire rope replacement jobs can cost fleet owners thousands of dollars per job. By increasing the length of the replacement interval, we are reducing maintenance costs and contributing to a lower total cost of ownership.”

The extended intervals apply to the following JLG® boom lift models, available globally: 600S, 600SJ, 600SC, 600SJC, 601S, 660SJ, 660SJC, 680S, 800S, 810SJ, 860SJ, 1100S, 1100SB, 1100SJP, 1200SJP, 1350SJP, 1500SJ, and 1850SJ.
