JLG offers the 600 Series of articulating booms. These models feature a narrow chassis option for access to confined 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 machinery offer dual rated capacities of 1000 pounds and 500 pounds as well. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these units will provide you with the reach capacity and the strength you require no matter what kind of job needs to be done.
The standard oscillating axle and optional 4-wheel drive give you exceptional drive and performance on rough terrain. The optional 4-wheel steer and 3-position switch provides unmatched agility in tight areas. The platform controls are improved and have been redesigned in order to provide more controlled operation and be smoother for job site efficiency.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
Great for working on any aircraft size, the Model 740AJ offers 74 feet or 22.6 m of height and more than 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It includes numerous safety features which you need when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform could be included 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 while doing so.
The Soft Touch System is another feature option that would help to reduce any damage to the machine or risk of any accidental contact in aircraft maintenance. This optional package offers 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 close to the aircraft surface, the operator is alerted.
The articulating jib allows for more access and precise positioning to all external surfaces on any aircraft. This jib could be utilized in both uncontrolled and controlled places because of 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. The Fall Arrest adds safety when performing maintenance outside of the platform.
JLG has designed a lot of of these feature options in order to make the operator as safe as possible and to increase overall effectiveness of the machine.
