50 Compact Equipment NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 That's the milestone number hit by JLG Industries Inc. for production of self-propelled boom lifts. The model 660SJ (No. 250,000th) was built at the company's manufac- turing facility in Shippensburg, Pa. In 2006, JLG celebrated production of its 100,000th North-American-made boom lift. Other historical firsts include introduction of the first oscillating axle technology in 1981, manufacturing the first fuel-cell powered boom lift in 1999 and production of the world's largest self-propelled boom lift, the 1850SJ, in 2014. Delivery of the commemorative lift was made to Skyworks LLC of Buffalo, the same rental company who purchased the 100,000th boom lift in 2006 and the 100,000th JLG telehandler in 2015.

The show topped the last four years' records in both at- tendance and exhibitors, making it the largest ever for the event and, in fact, one of the largest tradeshows in the United States. More than 24,700 people from around the world attended, representing a 3 percent increase over 2017. And, with 1,000 exhibits, the indoor show floor and Outdoor Demonstration Area were larger than ever. The indoor show floor was 40,000 gross sq ft larger than in 2017, and the Outdoor Demonstration Area covered more than 20 acres.
