CORAOPOLIS, Pa., Jan. 13, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- H&K Equipment of Pittsburgh announced today that it has become an officially licensed dealer for JLG Industries Inc. JLG, a subsidiary of Oshkosh Truck Corporation, manufactures the popular G12-55A telehandler, which H&K Equipment is now providing to service the construction, oil and natural gas industries in Pittsburgh and the tri-state area.
"JLG is a household name in lift equipment for a reason," explained H&K Vice President Peter Cicero. "The JLG brand is known for being on the leading edge of technology and for setting the industry standard for reliability and value."
While H&K Equipment will be offering vehicles from the full JLG product line, Cicero said, his company is currently focusing on the JLG G12-55A, which is available now for rent or purchase.
"Telehandlers offer the lifting capabilities of a forklift with the reach of a crane," said H&K Operations Manager Patrick Koch. "Their capacity for off-road and rough terrain travel allows them to reach places other machines can't, and in a more cost-efficient manner."
The JLG G12-55A features a cutting-edge Tier 4 compliant 130 horsepower Cummins 4.5 liter diesel engine. It also provides 12,000 pounds of lift capacity and 55 feet of reach while reducing emissions and increasing fuel economy.
"The JLG G12-55A is the largest and most powerful telehandler in the JLG lineup," said Cicero. "It can handle the bigger jobs that the compact machines just don't have the muscle for."
Once primarily used in the residential and commercial construction industries, Cicero added, telehandlers have seen their usage explode in recent years.
"The telehandler market has seen a lot of growth in the oil and natural gas industry," explained Koch. "Because Western Pennsylvania is a central hub in the Marcellus Shale region we felt it was important that we have a product like the G12-55A to serve the industry here."
The addition of the entire JLG lineup of boom lifts, telehandlers and stock pickers, Koch noted, is a key component in the continued growth of H&K Equipment.
"The JLG product line bolsters our entire lineup of telehandlers and heavy equipment and allows us to target new markets. It's our goal to offer the widest and best selection of material handling products in order to better serve our customers. Becoming an authorized JLG dealer is a great next step towards that goal."

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
