JLG LiftPod FT140
JLG Industries introduced the JLG LiftPod FT140, the next generation of personal portable innovative lifts.
The JLG FT140 features a platform height of 14 feet and a working height of 20 feet, ideal for facility, safety, and trade professionals seeking a new solution to ladders and scaffolding.
“We listened to our customers and developed the new JLG FT Series family to address their wants and needs for an affordable and portable solution to provide the reach they require, and making the JLG FT Series a great addition to a jobsite or facility they cannot do without,” said Randy Marzicola, JLG Industries director of channel development.
“In addition, the JLG FT140 offers an affordable AWP solution to workplace height challenges, especially when compared to traditional access lifts,” noted Marzicola. “It has an attractive price point – under $4,999 – compared to other entry-level lifts.”
The JLG FT140 features a new telescoping mast that provides clearance when you need it and is easily stowed when you want it, allowing workers to stand in an enclosed platform and move hands-free in a 360-degree range of motion. The platform also includes a lanyard anchorage point for tying off at height.
This new model consists of three lightweight components for simple assembly and disassembly. Casters on the back wheels make it easy for one person to move the LiftPod, increasing workplace efficiency and productivity. When disassembled, the LiftPod fits in the back of a pickup truck, van, or SUV for easy portability between work sites.
The FT140 is powered by a new dual 36V lithium-ion battery system, providing dependable performance. A convenient work tray increases jobsite productivity holding up to 33 pounds of tools and materials, with a total platform capacity of 330-pound. The FT140 is also designed with an aircraft quality aluminum mast.
