The 600 Series of articulating booms provided by JLG, feature a narrow chassis option which would enable access to confined places. The 600 Series showcases the industry's best work envelope; a horizontal outreach of 39 feet, 9 inches or 12.12 m and 8.1 m or 26 feet, 7 inches up and over height. These machinery offer 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 regardless of what kind of task has to be completed.
To give you exceptional drive and performance on rough terrain, these articulating booms are available with standard oscillating axle and optional 4-wheel drive. Giving unmatched agility and confined areas, are the optional 4-wheel steer and 3-position switch. The platform controls are improved and have been redesigned so as to give more controlled operation and be smoother for job site productivity.
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 more than 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It has numerous 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 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 package option provides a suspended padded rail which surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors which de-activate platform movement functions and if the basket comes too near the aircraft surface, the driver is warned.
The articulating jib enables for more access and accurate positioning to all external surfaces on any kind of aircraft. This specific jib could be used in both controlled and uncontrolled areas due to steady winds, 90 mph gusts and jet blast standards of 80 mph. An on-board air compressor option allows the use of pneumatic-powered hand tools. When performing maintenance outside of the platform, the Fall Arrest adds safety.
In order to make the driver as safe as possible, while also increasing the machines overall efficiency, JLG has designed many great feature options.
