JLG provides the 600 Series of articulating booms. These models feature an optional narrow chassis to access tight areas. The 600 Series showcases 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 kinds of equipment provide dual rated capacities of 500 pounds and 1000 pounds too. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these models would offer you with the strength and the reach capacity you need regardless of what kind of job has to be completed.
The optional 4-wheel drive and standard oscillating axle give you excellent drive and performance on rough terrain. The optional 4-wheel steer and 3-position switch offers unmatched agility in tight areas. The platform controls are improved and have been redesigned so as to provide more controlled operation and be smoother for job site productivity.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
Great for working on any aircraft size, the Model 740AJ offers 22.6 m or 74 feet of height and more than 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It has many safety features that you need when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform can be included so as to allow you to exit the platform and move a complete 270 degrees around the platform in a radius of 6 feet, and continue to have fall protection while doing so.
Another feature option is the Soft Touch System. This lessens damage and the risk of any accidental contact 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 if the basket comes too near the aircraft surface, the driver is alerted.
The articulating jib will enable the operator better access and positioning to all external surfaces on any kind of aircraft. This kind of jib could be used in both uncontrolled and controlled areas due to steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts. An optional on-board air compressor allows for pneumatic-powered hand tools to be utilized. The Fall Arrest adds safety when performing maintenance outside of the platform.
JLG has made a lot of of these optional features in order to make the operator as safe as possible and to improve overall effectiveness of the equipment.
