JLG offers the 600 Series of articulating booms. These units feature an optional narrow chassis for access to confined areas. The 600 Series features the industry's best work envelope; a horizontal outreach of 12.12 m or 39 feet, 9 inches and 8.1 m or 26 feet, 7 inches up and over height. These equipment provide dual rated capacities of 1000 pounds and 500 pounds as well. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these units will offer you with the reach capacity and the strength you require no matter what task needs to be done.
The standard oscillating axle and optional 4-wheel drive give you exceptional performance and drive on rough terrain. The 3-position switch and optional 4-wheel steer gives unmatched agility in tight areas. The platform controls are improved and have been redesigned so as to be smoother for job site productivity and provide more controlled operation.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
The Model 740AJ is the ideal equipment for working on any aircraft size. This unit provides 74 feet or 22.6 m of height and over fifteen 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 continue to have fall protection whilst doing so.
One more optional feature is the Soft Touch System. This reduces damage and the risk of any accidental contact in aircraft maintenance. This optional package provides a suspended padded rail which 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 allows for more access and precise positioning to all external surfaces on any aircraft. This kind of jib could be utilized in both controlled and uncontrolled areas thanks to 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.
In order to make the driver as safe as possible, while also increasing the machinery overall efficiency, JLG has made many great optional features.
