“With ‘green’ machines in your fleet, you can satisfy more of a customer’s needs and become a more valuable rental resource,” says Larry Workman, owner of Illini HiReach. “And in the rental business, the more service you provide to your customers, the more often your phone will ring.
Workman, who has booms and a large number of emission-free JLG electric scissor lifts in his fleet, recently supplied a Chicago-based job with an electric JLG boom. The jobsite, the Roosevelt Connection, called for a lift that had an almost zero-emission requirement yet also the need for a 60-foot reach. On top of that, the lift needed to weigh less than 15,500 pounds.
