“Based on the average annual utilization and residual value, EquipmentWatch analysts were able to determine that JLG electric scissor lifts and SkyTrak telehandlers will have the lowest 5-year total cost of ownership across all equipment brands and models they evaluated within the industry,” says Jennifer Stiansen, director of marketing for JLG.

It is truly an honor to be distinguished by EquipmentWatch in not one, but two key product categories.”

JLG electric scissor lift models include the DaVinci all-electric series, the ES electric-drive series, the R hydraulic-drive series and the ERT electric rough-terrain series.

Delivering comfort and productivity for a full day’s work, SkyTrak telehandlers feature improved boom function speeds, a single joystick for greater multifunction capability, an integrated armrest and optional air conditioning for increased comfort. The SkyTrak telehandler lineup includes the 3013, 6036, 6042, 8042, 10042, 10054 and 12054 models.

According to EquipmentWatch, this is the 4th year the company has awarded LCO awards, the industry’s only award that leverages third-party, unbiased data to identify equipment projected to best offer the lowest cost of ownership in the next five years. LCO recognition was given to manufacturers and brands in 20 different categories, based on the most popular equipment models observed in the resale channel during the 12-month period between March 2020 and February 2021.
