The JLG ATLAS II telescopic forklift can reach over obstacles to place loads, weighing up to 10,000 lb (4536 kg), into trucks or shipping containers.

JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, will build 311 JLG All Terrain Lifter Army System (ATLAS II) telescopic forklifts for the U.S. Army under two recent orders worth approximately $51 million. The first shipments of these products are slated to support logistics in Afghanistan. ATLAS II rough-terrain forklifts feature performance enhancements over the original ATLAS design, including reduced emissions and the addition of several multifunctional attachments. Manufactured in McConnellsburg, PA, the ATLAS II machines will supplement the 2500 original ATLAS units being used by the Army in operations around the world.
