JLG provides the 600 Series of articulating booms. These models feature an optional narrow chassis for access to tight places. The 600 Series features the best work envelope in the industry; 8.1 m or 26 feet, 7 inches up and over height and a horizontal outreach of 39 feet, 9 inches or 12.12 m. These kinds of equipment provide dual rated capacities of 500 pounds and 1000 pounds as well. Combined with a 60 foot platform height, these units will provide you with the strength and the reach capacity you require no matter what kind of job has to be done.
The standard oscillating axle and optional 4-wheel drive give you excellent drive and performance on rough terrain. The optional 4-wheel steer and 3-position switch offers unmatched agility in confined spaces. The platform controls are improved 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 provides 22.6 m or 74 feet of height and more than 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It has many safety features which you require when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform can be added in order to enable you to exit the platform and move an entire 270 degrees around the platform in a radius of 6 feet, and still have fall protection whilst doing so.
Another feature option is the Soft Touch System. This lessens damage and the risk of any accidental contact during aircraft maintenance. This optional package provides a suspended padded rail that surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors that de-activate platform movement functions and if the basket comes too close to the aircraft surface, the driver is alerted.
The articulating jib enables for more access and precise positioning to all external surfaces on any aircraft. This specific jib can be used in both controlled and uncontrolled places because of steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts. An on-board air compressor option enables the use of pneumatic-powered hand tools. When performing maintenance outside of the platform, the Fall Arrest adds safety.
JLG has designed many of these optional features in order to make the operator as safe as possible and to increase overall efficiency of the equipment.
