The most common upgrades to these pieces of equipment are foam filled tires (prevents costly downtime due to tire punctures- and promotes stability), and a side-tilt carriage, which allows the operator to land a load if the placement of the load requires a slight side-to-side adjustment. A variety of forklift attachments can be purchased separately for these machines. The most common attachments are: work platforms in various lengths, buckets in various sizes, truss booms, and jibs.
The Lull lines most unique feature is a boom that moves forward and backward within the frame of the machine. This feature is present on all Lull models currently in production. This traversing feature allows placement of the load by moving the boom forward or backward without having to move the entire machine. This feature is unique to the Lull line within the JLG family of brands and products.
