The 600 Series of articulating booms offered by JLG, feature a narrow chassis option that would enable access to confined places. The 600 Series features 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 equipment offer dual rated capacities of 500 pounds and 1000 pounds too. Combined with a 60 foot platform height, these units will provide you with the power and the reach capacity you need regardless of what job has to be done.
The standard oscillating axle and optional 4-wheel drive give you exceptional performance and drive on rough terrain. The optional 4-wheel steer and 3-position switch offers unmatched agility in tight areas. The platform controls are better and have been redesigned so as to be smoother for job site productivity and give more controlled operation.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
Great for working on any aircraft size, the Model 740AJ provides 22.6 m or 74 feet of height and over 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It has numerous safety features that you require when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform can be included in order to enable you to exit the platform and move a complete 270 degrees around the platform in a radius of 6 feet, and still have fall protection while 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 offers a suspended padded rail which surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors that de-activate platform movement functions and the operator is warned if the basket comes too close to the aircraft surface.
The articulating jib allows for more access and precise positioning to all external surfaces on any aircraft. This type of jib could be utilized in both controlled and uncontrolled places due to steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts. An optional on-board air compressor enables the use of pneumatic-powered hand tools. When performing maintenance outside of the platform, the Fall Arrest adds safety.
JLG has made a lot of of these optional features in order to make the operator as safe as possible and to increase overall effectiveness of the equipment.
