JLG offers the 600 Series of articulating booms. These units feature a narrow chassis option to access tight places. The 600 Series showcases the best work envelope in the industry; a horizontal outreach of 39 feet, 9 inches or 12.12 m and 26 feet, 7 inches or 8.1 m up and over height. These equipment provide dual rated capacities of 500 pounds and 1000 pounds as well. Combined with a 60 foot platform height, these units would offer you with the strength and the reach capacity you need no matter what work needs to be done.
The optional 4-wheel drive and standard oscillating axle give you exceptional performance and drive on rough terrain. The 3-position switch and optional 4-wheel steer gives unmatched agility in confined spaces. The platform controls are better and have been redesigned so as to give more controlled operation and be smoother for job site efficiency.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
Great for working on any size of aircraft, the Model 740AJ provides 74 feet or 22.6 m of height and more than 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It includes many safety features which you need when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform could be included so as to allow 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 which will help to reduce any damage to the machine or risk of any accidental contact in aircraft maintenance. This package option provides a suspended padded rail which 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 warned.
The articulating jib enables for more access and precise positioning to all external surfaces on any kind of aircraft. This particular jib could be used in both controlled and uncontrolled places because of steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts. An on-board air compressor option enables the use of pneumatic-powered hand tools. When performing maintenance outside of the platform, the Fall Arrest adds safety.
In order to make the operator as safe as possible, while also increasing the equipment overall efficiency, JLG has designed many great optional features.
