JLG Industries has introduced the JLG ES4046 electric scissor lift to its lineup. JLG says that this scissor lift provides improved performance capabilities, implements application-driven design, and offers full lifecycle support for its operators.

"This model completes the JLG family of ES Series scissors, and the added value isn't just with the updated specs," says Bob Begley, JLG's director of product management. "JLG ClearSky Smart Fleet comes standard, and the future-focused design supports facilities' daily tasks by providing efficiency and enhancing battery life." 

JLG has incorporated operator feedback into the design of the ES4046 to upgrade key areas of the product, such as fold-down rails. JLG says that the new machine has over 50 percent more duty cycles than the previous iteration, the R4045 electric scissor lift, as well as the incorporation of parts commonality, fewer hoses and fittings and a single lift cylinder, which results in reduced maintenance needs. The ES4046 is the highest ES Series scissor, measuring at 39-foot platform height indoors (up to 28.5 feet outdoors), while also being the lowest gross-weight scissor in its class.

The machine's design includes a zero turning radius which provides access to narrow aisles and tight overhead spaces. In 2024, JLG will introduce a lithium-ion battery option to offer more efficiency, enhanced battery life, fast charging, and a lower lifetime cost of ownership. Operators also can add optional features such as a CleanGuard leak containment system for working on sensitive flooring, a 900-watt inverter to charge tools, and a SkySense detection system that helps protect workers and property. ClearSky Smart Fleet comes standard on the ES4046 electric scissor lift to allow for easier fleet tracking.

"Specifically designed to meet the demands of the worksite of the future, the ES4046 electric scissor lift was built with new power options and advanced technologies in mind," adds Begley. "This scissor lift will continue to evolve as operator needs change, to expand job site capabilities and continue to deliver the best in productivity, efficiency and safety."
