JLG introduces telehandler seatbelt kit
By Leila Steed27 September 2022
JLG Industries has expanded its offering of aftermarket accessories, adding a seatbelt safety kit for telehandlers to the range.
Available on select models, the retrofit kit comprises a high visibility orange seatbelt and the Seatbelt Engagement and Operator Presence (SEOP) features.
While JLG’s Seatbelt Engagement feature provides an audible and visible alarm that activates when the machine operator is seated but not buckled in, the Operator Presence function “restricts engine start and hydraulic functions” when the operator is not seated.
JLG said the SEOP kit “features work together to enhance job site safety by using both visual and audible alarms, as well as limiting machine functions”.
The accessory is available for installation on JLG’s 742, 943, 1043, 1055 and 1255 telehandler models.
