Obstacle warning

Launches

NEWLY available on JLG's 15VPSP vertical mast lift is a sensing device which reduces the possibility of lowering the platform onto an obstruction. If there is an obstruction within the detection zone beneath the platform, descent is stopped, an LED flashes and the horn sounds an alarm of three short blasts.

Once the obstacle is cleared - either by removing it or by driving the platform out of its range, the sensing system can be reset by pressing the horn button.
