Improved productivity with new operator oriented telehandlers from JLG

PR EAZ 3533 PS Series Telehandlers

JLG 4014 and 4017 telehandlers increase productivity, improve user safety and operator efficiency while reducing total cost of ownership. Built to take on the toughest applications, the 4014 and 4017 feature a maximum lift capacity of 4 tons and maximum lift heights of 14 and 17 metres respectively.

Eazi Sales & Service, South Africa’s sole supplier of world-leading JLG access solutions, has introduced the new JLG 4014 and 4017 telehandlers, offering optimised productivity, improved user safety and greater operating efficiency whilst reducing total cost of ownership. Built to take on the toughest applications, the 4014 and 4017 feature a maximum lift capacity of 4 tons and maximum lift heights of 14 and 17 metres respectively.

Designed with additional power for performance, the 75 kW Stage lllb compliant Deutz engines and Powershift four-speed transmissions deliver the horsepower, speed and control that are needed for optimal productivity. The engines selected are compliant with the latest standards in environmental regulations that ensure reduced fuel consumption and lower emissions. In addition, each handler is equipped with an adaptive load control system (EN15000), for safe operation.

The 4014 and 4017 further benefit from a load-sensing variable displacement piston pump that produces 150 litres per minute output, increasing lifting performance. The piston pump also contributes to reduced cycle times and fuel consumption.

With high ground clearance, a low centre of gravity and a four-wheel drive, the telehandlers are designed to take on the toughest terrains. Standard frame levelling adds efficiency by varying the level of the frame in relation to the ground when loading on uneven terrain. The front axle of the telehandlers creates greater stability by keeping the machine straight on slopes of up to ten degrees.

“The JLG 4014 and 4017 telehandlers are designed to be true drivers’ machines. A lot of attention has been paid during the design stage to ensure the telehandlers will equip operators with the tools they need to accomplish their tasks in the most efficient manner,” says Larry Smith, Managing Director at Eazi Sales & Service.

The 4014 and 4017’s new designs have significantly improved visibility in line with the EN15830 European standards. The engine, boom pivot and cab are positioned to ensure maximum visibility of the work site. Cab-mounted controls, a wraparound dashboard and easy-to-read gauges make the 4014 and 4017 easier to operate. The new joystick enables simultaneous boom movement, featuring lift up and down, tele-in and tele-out functions, drive direction, gear selection, auxiliary controls, and tilt roller functions. Operators can also enjoy the comfort offered by the spacious cab, suspension seat and optional air-conditioning.

The variety of steering modes available assists the operator in the handling and navigating of tough terrains. Steering options include: front-wheel steer, all-wheel steer to help reduce the turning radius in confined areas and crab-steer for sideways movement and precise positioning before lifting.

The design has taken into account the need for easy maintenance by mounting the engine to the side, and the grouping of grease points in the boom- which provides easy access for service engineers.

JLG offers a full range of buckets, carriages, crane hooks, truss booms and smart platform accessories to extend the versatility of the 4014 and 4017. To achieve maximum productivity, instructor-led courses are available as a packaged solution.
