The ES4046, first launched in February, completes the manufacturer’s ES series of slab scissor lifts, and is now available in Europe.

The latest addition to the ES range has indoor and outdoor capabilities and is designed to be lightweight and easily manoeuvrable with a zero turning circle. Productivity is enhanced with more than a 40% increase in duty cycles compared with its hydraulic drive predecessor, allowing operators to work for longer on a single charge.

The ES4046 is also the highest ES series scissor, with an indoor platform height of 11.9m (8.75m outdoors), and the lowest gross-weight scissor in its class, says JLG. When used indoors, it can take up to three workers, the highest occupancy of any model in the ES series.

It is the first ES scissor lift to use maintenance-free AC drive motors, which help to increase efficiency, reduce noise, and allow it to travel at 50% higher stowed speed than previous JLG models of this size. Maintenance time and costs are also reduced by the incorporation of parts commonality, fewer hoses and fittings, and a single lift cylinder.

The ES4046 is available with JLG ClearSky Smart Fleet, JLG’s two-way fleet management and communication platform, allowing for easier tracking. Optional features include the CleanGuard  leak containment system for working on sensitive flooring, a 900-watt inverter to charge tools and SkySense enhanced detection system that helps to protect workers and property.

“Specifically designed to meet the demands of the future, the ES4046 is built with new power options and advanced technologies in mind,” said Nicola Sacchet, EMEAI Product Manager for Boom, Scissor and Vertical Products. “This scissor lift will evolve as operator needs change, to expand capabilities and continue to deliver the highest levels of productivity, efficiency and safety.”
