JLG Industries announced the introduction of a Fluid Analysis Program for its customers of telehandlers, aerial work platforms, and other equipment in North America. This service is designed to complement the company’s existing Ground Support efforts that help keep JLG equipment ready and productive. Fluid analysis is a preventive maintenance activity under the recently launched JLG Extended Warranty Program, but can also be used independently. 

The benefits of a fluid analysis program include:
  • Maximize equipment reliability
  • Extend oil drain intervals
  • Extend equipment and component life
  • Proactively prevent equipment failures
  • Increase resale value
“Our customers are continuing to focus on reducing operating costs and maximizing uptime,” said Chris Mellott, JLG Industries vice president Ground Support. “This testing procedure allows equipment owners to evaluate the status of their equipment and thus proactively schedule service or replace components prior to their failure.”

JLG test packages are available for engine oils and coolants, non-engine oils and hydraulic systems. The manufacturer also offers a selection of sampling equipment and supplies through its Aftermarket Parts Team.

JLG uses laboratories in Houston; Edmonton Alberta; Indianapolis; and Salt Lake City to help expedite the testing process.
