JLG offers the 600 Series of articulating booms. These models feature an optional narrow chassis for access to confined areas. The 600 Series showcases the best work envelope within the business; 26 feet, 7 inches or 8.1 m up and over height and a horizontal outreach of 39 feet, 9 inches or 12.12 m. These kinds of equipment offer dual rated capacities of 1000 pounds and 500 pounds as well. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these models will offer you with the power and the reach capacity you require no matter what type of job needs to be completed.
To give you exceptional performance and drive on rough terrain, these articulating booms are available with standard oscillating axle and optional 4-wheel drive. Offering unmatched agility and confined areas, are the optional 4-wheel steer and 3-position switch. The platform controls are better and have been redesigned so as to be smoother for job site productivity and offer more controlled operation.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
Ideal for working on any size of aircraft, the Model 740AJ offers 22.6 m or 74 feet of height and over 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It has many safety features that you need when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform can be added so as to enable you to exit the platform and move a complete 270 degrees around the platform within a radius of 6 feet, and continue to have fall protection while doing so.
One more optional feature is the Soft Touch System. This lessens damage and the risk of any accidental contact during aircraft maintenance. This package option provides a suspended padded rail that surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors which de-activate platform movement functions and the driver is alerted if the basket comes too near the aircraft surface.
The articulating jib would enable the operator better access and positioning to all external surfaces on any type of aircraft. This jib can be utilized in both controlled and uncontrolled places because of steady winds, 90 mph gusts and jet blast standards of 80 mph. An on-board air compressor option allows for pneumatic-powered hand tools to be used. The Fall Arrest adds safety when performing maintenance outside of the platform.
JLG has designed many of these feature options in order to make the driver as safe as possible and to improve overall effectiveness of the machine.
