The JLG FT140 continues the LiftPod legacy, as it is simple to assemble, operate, transport, and enhances job site productivity. Featuring a platform height of 14 ft. (4.3 m) and a working height of 20 ft. (6 m), the FT140 is an ideal solution for facility, safety, and trade professionals seeking a new solution to ladders and scaffolding, according to the manufacturer.

“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 job site 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,” said Marzicola. “It has an attractive price point — under $4,999 — compared to other entry-level lifts.”

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 36V lithium-ion battery system, providing dependable performance. A convenient work tray increases job site productivity holding up to 33 lbs. (15 kg) of tools and materials, with a total platform capacity of 330-lb. (150 kg). The FT140 also is designed with an aircraft quality aluminum mast.
