JLG Industries has updated its LRT series of rough terrain scissors to impove operability, serviceability, and efficiency.
The upgraded series offers refined platform control joystick operation for smoother and more precise machine repositioning. In addition, control system upgrades provide the system with feedback to improve drive control proportionality. Left and right steer functions now receive renewed digital inputs to ensure a higher level of functionality and improved response for the operator.
Leveling jack performance has been improved to deliver more accuracy and quicker leveling speeds. The leveling jack interface is enhanced by integrating a dedicated leveling function within the current lift/drive switch.
The updated 530LRT model will utilize proportional lift valves for the upper and lower lift cylinders to provide smooth, controlled proportional ascent and descent. The upgrades also include smoother lift-up and lift-down operation.
The complete lineup is powered by Tier 4 Final diesel engines, which do not require the serviceable emissions technology found in larger engine systems.
