JLG Industries Inc., the leading global provider of access equipment, has introduced the RS Series of electric scissor lifts.
The line, launched with the 1932RS and the 3248RS, was rolled out at The Rental Show this week in New Orleans.

The 1932RS is 32 inches wide with a maximum platform height of 19 feet and a 500-pound capacity; the 48-inch-wide 3248RS can extend up to 32 feet and accommodate up to 705 pounds. Both models use direct electric-drive motors designed to “deliver industry-leading duty cycles,” according to JLG.
Passive pothole protection eliminates all moving parts, significantly reducing repair and maintenance cost. In addition, each model uses only four hydraulic hoses, reducing the chance of leaks, and has an easily accessible battery storage area. Both models can traverse grades of up to 25 percent.
Variety of Applications
“The JLG 1932RS and JLG 3248RS will appeal to those who seek a service-friendly machine that delivers value without sacrificing performance and quality,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries global product director. “Both models can be used in a variety of applications, and their innovative, rugged design makes them very reliable.”
Both lifts include a multifunction digital indicator (MDI display), designed to simplify battery evaluation and fault diagnosis. Both also feature controls similar to the ES Scissor, for ease of training and automatic traction control.
Fold-down guardrails on the 3248RS enable access through standard double doorways or under low obstructions. The 1932RS and the 3248RS will be available in late spring 2012.
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, manufactures JLG aerial work platforms as well as JLG, SkyTrak and Lull telehandlers.
