JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, has been awarded the Show Stopper Award at the National Electrical Contractors Association 2008 Convention and Trade Show for its LiftPod personal and portable lift.

The JLG LiftPod is a portable aerial work platform designed to replace the ladder. The award was given because of its design and ability to improve contractor and maintenance worker performance.

Its lightweight and portable design makes the LiftPod easily mobile around the job site and convenient for stowage in a pick-up truck, van or SUV.

The LiftPod was selected the winner from nearly 300 exhibitors at NECA 2008. In addition to receiving the Show Stopper Award, the LiftPod has been honoured with a number of other awards, including:

  • Rental Equipment Register’s Innovative Product Awards – Grand Winner
  • Lift & Access’s Leadership in Lifting Equipment and Access Platform (LLEAP) Awards – Gold Winner, Aerial Lifts
  • Building Operating Management’s Readers’ Choice Award
  • Construction Equipment’s Top 100 Products Awards – Lifting and Material Handling
  • Plant Engineering’s Products of the Year – Finalist

The LiftPod reaches a 14-foot working height and is operated using a common 18 V drill or optional power pack. At 25% the cost and weight of traditional work platforms, the LiftPod is a lightweight tool that can be used for a number of maintenance and repair jobs in almost any building type.
