The 315G and 615G gas-powered utility vehicles mark the entry into a new product category.
JLG, the AWP and telehandler manufacturer, has entered a new product category with the launch of a utility vehicle (UTV) line. The company showcased two models—the three-seat 315G and six-seat 615G—at Conexpo.
The company says its customers will benefit from the convenience of a single-source equipment supplier when purchasing UTVs with its traditional products such as booms, scissors, and telehandlers.
Both the JLG 315G and 615G feature a 10-inch ground clearance with four-wheel drive and an independent suspension to keep all four wheels on the ground during travel.
While operating the vehicles, drivers can shift between two-wheel and four-wheel drive, locking the differential, for improved control. Durability is further enhanced, JLG says, by a rugged axle, standard skid plate, brush guard bumper, heavy-duty steel frame, and powder-coated paint.
The models have a 1,000-pound cargo box, 1,500-pound towing capacity, and removable truck bed panels to accommodate a full size skid.
Standard features on the vehicles include contoured seats and foot beds, individual headrests and seatbelts, power steering, backup alarm, and remote oil and filter check capability. Operators can choose from additional options to enhance comfort. These include an enclosed cab, heater, windshield, and beacon.
The 325G and 615G are gasoline-powered vehicles. JLG says diesel models will be introduced later this year. The units are manufactured through a partnership agreement with Arctic Cat.
