"When John L. Grove started the Access industry in 1969, he was driven to develop a safer way to work at height. This new self-leveling boom lift is evidence that this drive is still alive and continues to fuel JLG's passion to move the Access industry forward."MILAN KLIMESSENIOR CHIEF ENGINEER, JLG
JLG invents, launches and sells JLG 1, the very first aerial work platform changing the face of construction across the world.
Oscillating axle becomes an option on boom and scissor lifts to improve maneuverability and performance.
JLG engineers begin research and concept development into how to enhance safety and productivity at height on uneven ground.
A strong foundation of data and research is compiled, bringing self-leveling technology within reach.
The first concept animation is presented to key customers and stakeholders at BAUMA in Munich, Germany.
Eleven months after BAUMA, JLG presents a full-size, fully functional prototype at CONEXPO/CON-AGG in Las Vegas, NV.
After three years of extensive research, testing, field trials and implementing valuable customer feedback, JLG returns to CONEXPO/CON-AGG in Las Vegas and presents the world debut of the self-leveling boom lift.
The 670SJ Self-Leveling Boom Lift officially launches in the market, helping JLG change the face of construction across the world — again.
