June 15, 2009 – Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company has received an order from the United States Army to rebuild 500 All Terrain Lifter Army System (ATLAS)  telehandlers and 300 other rough terrain forklifts valued at $76.9 million.

The company says the machines will be deployed in Iraq and Afghanistan to improve the ability of soldiers to quickly and reliably carry out their logistics missions. 
 
Units from Central Command (CENTCOM) deployments in Iraq and Afghanistan arrive at the JLG Military Support Center where a core list of items, such as the transmission, engine and axles are replaced or rebuilt. Other items considered necessary are replaced or refurbished. A new paint job along with a thorough inspection ensures the ‘Reset’ machines leave the facility in conditions equal to new.

“JLG telehandlers provide many years of reliable use in the demanding environments experienced daily by military personnel.  A soldier operating a rebuilt JLG machine will experience no visible performance or operational differences between a rebuilt and a new unit.  Our ability to extend the usable life through a rebuild program is a testament to the robust, rugged design incorporated into each JLG machine,” says Denny Buterbaugh, JLG vice president.
