The lightweight and portable JLG LiftPod easily moves around the jobsite.

Equipment manufacturer JLG may very well require the use of one of its new personnel and portable lifts to access the various hardware that its LiftPod is racking up.

Already recognized by assorted industry publications and one of Construction Equipment's Top 100 Products of 2008, the JLG LiftPod was named the winner of the Show Stopper Award among the close to 300 exhibitors at the National Electrical Contractors Association's convention and trade show. The LiftPod's ability to improve contractor and maintenance worker performance was cited by show judges.

"These awards have reconfirmed our confidence that industry professionals are looking for a more stable alternative to the ladder, while retaining the portability and convenience they're accustomed to," says Jeff Ford, JLG senior manager of marketing communications.

At approximately one-quarter of the cost and weight of traditional work platforms, the LiftPod and its 14-foot working height can be used for inside maintenance and repair jobs, operated only by a common 18-volt drill or optional power pack.
