JLG’s Engine Installation and Removal Vehicle has a load capacity of 6000 lb (2721 kg) and can maneuver in the most challenging terrains.

JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corp. company, has received an order to build 38 Engine Installation and Removal Vehicles (EIRV) for the U.S. Navy.  The EIRV is based on the rugged design of the MMV, a telescopic material handler developed specifically for the U.S. Marine Corps. Its modified boom is suitable for placing or removing engines on cargo aircraft such as the P-3, C-2, E-2, and C-130. Valued at approximately $6 million, this contract brings the total EIRV vehicles on order to 64 units, with a value totaling over $10 million dollars. The EIRV is built in McConnellsburg, PA, and will be in use at naval facilities around the globe.
