Oshkosh M-ATV Made At JLG Displayed At Fair


JLG Industries displayed one of the armored military trucks (M-ATV) that it is building for parent company Oshkosh Corp. Friday and Saturday at the Fulton County Fair. The light-weight, blast-resistant vehicles have been designed to navigate the harsh terrain of Afghanistan where they will be used in support of U.S. Armed Forces. JLG is calling back hundreds of its laid-off workers to make some of the 3,944 M-ATVs Oshkosh is contracted to build for the U.S. Department of Defense. Last Tuesday U.S. Rep. Bill Shuster visited JLG's McConnellsburg plant to view production of 2,244 M-ATVs that have a delivery deadline of December 2009. The remaining 1,700 M-ATVs have a February 2010 deadline. The DOD contract is valued at more than $2 billion. Pictured with the M-ATV is JLG's vice president of government products and programs, Denny Buterbaugh.
