JLG Industries Inc. has received an order from the United States Army for 214 JLG All Terrain Lifter Army System (ATLAS) II telehandlers. The contract is valued at $33.7 million, with the first units scheduled for delivery in September.

The ATLAS II is designed to reach into trucks or shipping containers, lift loads over obstacles, and pick up loads from both above and below grade. It has a maximum reach of 28 feet (8.5 meters) and loads of up to 10,000 pounds (4,536 kg), and can be lifted as high as 17 feet (5.2 m). With four-wheel drive, high ground clearance and 173 horsepower, the ATLAS II is built to go through the most rugged terrain.

ATLAS II machines will be engineered with significant upgrades from the original ATLAS design. Improvements include reduced emissions, interchangeable “quick” attachments and increased load handling capabilities. “Lubed for life” components also contribute to significantly reduce maintenance and costs over the life of the machine.

The ATLAS II machines will be manufactured in McConnellsburg, Pa.
