The new JLG R11100 rotating telehandler created in partnership with Italy-based Dieci

In a nod to the fast-growing rotating telehandler market in North America, which are becoming a solid choice for getting work done as more contractors in tight urban areas see the benefits rotators offer, JLG and Dieci have announced a new partnership that will see JLG-branded rotating telehandlers made by Dieci enter the North American market.

Italy-based Dieci has produced rotating telehandlers for more than 20 years, and the company entered the U.S. market through its Dieci Americas Telehandlers business in 2014. The new JLG rotating telehandler line will initially consist of three models: the JLG R1370, R1385 and R11100 featuring max lift heights from 67.3 to 97.1 feet and max lift capacities of 11,000 to 13,200 pounds. They will be available to order this Fall and will begin to ship to customers in early 2022.

JLG rotating telehandlers are being designed to meet the needs of the masonry, roofing, demolition, cladding, renovation and tunnelling industries, JLG said. JLG will also offer 13 attachments for the rotating line.

“The partnership between Dieci and JLG marks the coming together of two global market leaders in the telehandler space,” said Ciro Correggi, CEO of Dieci. “We are proud of our manufacturing history and success in Europe with this product and pleased to partner with a company of JLG’s caliber to bring it to North American customers.”

“JLG is delighted to partner with a like-minded innovator like Dieci to develop its line of rotary telehandlers for North America,” said Rogerio dos Santos, vice president of engineering for telehandlers at JLG. “With industry leading design engineers around the globe collaborating on this effort, the resulting product line is expected to exceed both the quality and performance standards customers have come to expect from both companies.”
