The added value of the ES4046 to the JLG family of electric scissor lifts doesn't simply come with updated specs, it is designed and built to provide increased performance capabilities and to offer support for its operators.

Let’s take a look!

This machine provides increased productivity because it has a 40% increase in duty cycles over its hydraulic predecessor (the R4045 model). Because it has an indoor capacity of 3 occupants (a 20% increase in capacity compared to other models), operators can carry more materials and tools to heights more efficiently.

With its AC electric drive design, the ES4046 also reduces operating costs, featured in the video "JLG ES4046 - AC Drive Motors Overview" integrated components containing hydraulic hoses and hydrauli fittings on the entire machine.  This translates to increased functionality and uptime, along with the reduction for potential leaks which results in fewer service calls.


The ES4046 has a 0 inside turning radius to give operators access to narrow aisles and small overhead spaces.  Fold-down rails come standard.  You can learn more how to use them in the JLG "How to Use Fold-Down Platform Rails" video:

Coming later this year, JLG will be introducing a lithium-ion batter option for faster charging, efficient work in low-ambient temperatures, less maintenance, and a longer battery life.  Other features include the CleanGuard® leak containment system for work on sensitive floors, a 900-watt invert to charge tools and the SkySense® detection system so operators can have an added level of awareness of their surroundings.

Accessories available for operators include:

Panel Carrier: Load panels in the carrier tray outside the platform where it’s easier to transfer the panel to its elevated installation site.

Pipe & Material Racks: Conserve platform space and reduce trip hazards by storing materials within reach.

Work Light Kits: The job doesn’t end when the sun goes down. Add factory-quality lighting systems to this machine to maximize its workday and increase operator confidence.

Workstation: This removable organization system is precision-made to keep tools and components within reach.

Onboard features like the standard USB charger and phone holster improve operators’ experience with the ES4046. This model also delivers a high degree of commonality with other JLG scissors to simplify routine service and maintenance tasks.

Safety First! 

The JLG ES4046 electric scissor lift also comes equipped with an emergency descent mechanism to maintain operator safety at all times. Check out how it works in this video: JLG ES4046 Electric Scissor Lift—Emergency Descent Procedure.

JLG’s innovative ClearSky Smart Fleet™ IoT platform comes standard on the ES4046. This future-focused design supports operators’ daily tasks by actively monitoring battery life and providing operating efficiencies, like fleet tracking.
