Earlier today we took delivery of two JLG stock pickers. These are going to be a great asset to the recently expanded PBMG facility that now totals 29,000 square feet. The JLG stock pickers feature a zero turning radius for excellent maneuverability and can be operated with one-hand. Not only that, but they also have a maximum working height of 21 feet! These will allow the warehouse personnel to quickly maneuver through the warehouse isles and safely take down heavy or cumbersome items without using a latter or a much less maneuverable scissor jack lift.

Colin, PBMG's warehouse manager and Travis were first to take the JLG stock pickers for a test drive.

It was a race to the top!

Colin was in the lead and still had another five or six feet before reaching the maximum working height of 21 feet!

While Colin was up there he grabbed a case of Meguiar's gallons.

Up, up, and away!

With a fully charged battery and a quick coat of Wolfgang Deep Gloss Paint Sealant, the new JLG stock pickers are ready for duty at PBMG! :righton:

Very nice. I'm surprised that OSHA in Florida doesn't require hard hats in warehouses. If one of those gallon cases fell, it could seriously injure or kill someone.

If the wife would let me, I would get one for the kitchen. I am tired of lifting my arms to open a cabinet.

I use a Yale Order Selector everyday for my job... it's got a max working height of 20 feet I believe. Those look like they may wobble quite a bit up top. Could be fun!

I bet OSHA would not be happy the saftey bar isn't down on the lift on the left.

We take safety very seriously at PBMG and I can assure all of you that the operators of the stock pickers are equipped with the necessary safety gear and are fully trained to operate the machines before they are put in use. As the stock pickers find their way to their designated area where they will be used, operators will be equipped accordingly with the necessary safety gear. :dblthumb2:
