JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Truck Corporation company and a manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, introduced five new die-cast models including the JLG model E33MJ mast boom lift, JLG Toucan model 1210 (the European version of model E33MJ), JLG electric scissor lift model 2646ES, and two versions of the Atlas II military telehandler.

With these additions, JLG now offers 16 different models, the widest variety of die-cast aerials and telehandlers ever available from a single manufacturer.

Noted for their high level of detail, the models are painted in authentic JLG colors. Each has fully operable components, which include movable booms, adjustable steering and highly detailed controls. A variable height-locking feature on all models allows the booms and scissors to be raised to any height without loss of elevation over time.

Model E33MJ and Toucan model 1210 mast boom lifts allow multiple-height positioning of the work platform to heights exceeding 13 in. The design of these die-cast replicas is enhanced with multidirectional front moving wheels, and a 360-degree rotating turret for maximum flexibility and numerous positioning capabilities.

The mast boom lift models features more than 20 fully functioning parts that allow them to roll forward and backward, lift and extend the boom arm, and rotate the grey, non-marking rubber wheels into various steering modes. It is finished in baked enamel paint with authentic product decals.

With highly detailed scissors stacks, the JLG electric scissor lift model 2646ES replica can display the platform at various intervals from a stowed height of 3 in. to nearly 10 in. into the air to provide realistic product displays or presentations for dealers and customers alike. In addition, the model features a slide-out deck extension that has a horizontal outreach exceeding 1 in. (50 in. on the actual scissor lift).

The replica of the JLG 2646ES features an operator’s control module with one-handed controls along with highly detailed transmission parts and undercarriage components. Incorporating nearly 20 fully-functioning die-cast metal parts, the JLG 2646ES model also features grey, non-marking rubber wheels that steer and roll to help facilitate the die-cast model’s increased realism.

Exceeding 16 in. in length, two model replicas of the ATLAS II military telehandlers have the ability to extend their three-section boom more than 10 in. into the air at angles up to 45 degrees.

The replicas of the ATLAS II feature accurate paint and decals, a highly detailed operator’s cab and engine compartment, and 20 fully functioning parts that allow them to roll forward and backward, lift and extend the boom arm and rotate the wheels into crabsteer, four-wheel steer and two-wheel steer modes. Two color schemes are available: olive drab and desert sand.
