The 600 Series of articulating booms provided by JLG, feature an optional narrow chassis which would allow access to tight areas. The 600 Series features the best work envelope in the industry; 26 feet, 7 inches or 8.1 m up and over height and a horizontal outreach of 12.12 m or 39 feet, 9 inches. These types of equipment provide dual rated capacities of 1000 pounds and 500 pounds too. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these models would provide you with the power and the reach capacity you require regardless of what task has to be done.
To give you exceptional drive and performance on rough terrain, these articulating booms come with optional 4-wheel drive and standard oscillating axles. Offering unmatched agility and confined spaces, are the 3-position switch and optional 4-wheel steer. The platform controls are better and have been redesigned so as to give more controlled operation and be smoother for job site productivity.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
The Model 740AJ is the best machinery for working on any aircraft size. This model offers 22.6 m or 74 feet of height and more than fifteen m or fifty one feet of outreach. It includes many safety features which you require when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform could be added in order to allow 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.
Another feature option is the Soft Touch System. This lessens the risk of any accidental contact and damage in aircraft maintenance. This package option provides a suspended padded rail that surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors that de-activate platform movement functions and if the basket comes too close to the aircraft surface, the driver is alerted.
The articulating jib would allow the operator better access and positioning to all external surfaces on any aircraft. This specific jib could be used in both controlled and uncontrolled areas because of steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts. An optional on-board air compressor enables for pneumatic-powered hand tools to be used. 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 machinery overall effectiveness, JLG has designed many great optional features.
