JLG introduces new vertical mast lift series

The E18 models offer two times more duty cycles than the market-leading competitive machines, the company says

JLG Industries has introduced an all-new vertical mast lift series for both indoor and outdoor use, the company has announced.

The new JLG E18MCL model has been designed for construction and industrial applications that require outdoor and indoor capable machines, while the E18MML has been rated for indoor use only, making it most suitable for sensitive flooring and finish work applications, including maintenance. Equipped with solid, non-marking tires the E18MCL has a scissor-style steering that similar to JLG scissor lifts for quick familiarisation and reliable control through tight areas like doorways, the company explained.

The E18MML is said to be equipped with caster wheels and has point & go steering, the same as the more traditional vertical lift steering style on JLG’s predecessor models.

In late July 2022, JLG launched its X22SJP straight boom compact crawler and, later in the month, it appointed Mirco Negri as Senior Product Manager.


The “E” in these models’ nomenclature stands for electric, giving a nod to the machines’ modern DC electric drive system. JLG’s E18 models are said to offer two times more duty cycles than the market-leading competitive machines. Due to the batteries being mounted under the platform, the E18s also are designed with improved machine weight distribution for efficient loading and unloading.

According to Misty Mason, Product Manager at JLG, “The new E18 vertical lift series has been engineered to provide the most important features and benefits: maximised durability, ease of serviceability and enhanced productivity — while keeping operator safety, confidence and comfort in mind.”

In late September 2022, Johnson Arabia said it had enhanced its fleet with a wide range of new battery-powered equipment.
