JLG offers the 600 Series of articulating booms. These models feature an optional narrow chassis to access tight places. The 600 Series features the industry's best work envelope; 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 machines offer dual rated capacities of 500 pounds and 1000 pounds as well. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these models will provide you with the reach capacity and the strength you require regardless of what type of job has to be done.
To give you exceptional performance and drive on rough terrain, these articulating booms come with optional 4-wheel drive and standard oscillating axles. Offering unmatched agility and confined spaces, are the 3-position switch and optional 4-wheel steer. The platform controls are improved and have been redesigned in order to offer more controlled operation and be smoother for job site efficiency.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
Great for working on any size of aircraft, the Model 740AJ offers 74 feet or 22.6 m of height and over 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It has numerous safety features which you need when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform could be added in order to allow you to exit the platform and move an entire 270 degrees around the platform within a radius of 6 feet, and still have fall protection while doing so.
One more feature option is the Soft Touch System. This reduces the risk of any accidental contact and damage in aircraft maintenance. This optional package offers a suspended padded rail that surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors that de-activate platform movement functions and the driver is warned if the basket comes too near the aircraft surface.
The articulating jib allows for more access and accurate positioning to all external surfaces on any aircraft. This particular jib can be utilized in both controlled and uncontrolled places thanks to steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts. 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 made a lot of of these feature options in order to make the operator as safe as possible and to improve overall effectiveness of the machine.
