The 600 Series of articulating booms provided by JLG, feature an optional narrow chassis which will allow access to tight places. The 600 Series features the best work envelope within the business; 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 machines provide dual rated capacities of 500 pounds and 1000 pounds as well. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these units will offer you with the reach capacity and the strength you need regardless of what type of job needs to be done.
The optional 4-wheel drive and standard oscillating axle give you excellent performance and drive on rough terrain. The optional 4-wheel steer and 3-position switch gives unmatched agility in confined areas. The platform controls are better and have been redesigned so as to be smoother for job site efficiency and offer more controlled operation.
Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
The Model 740AJ is the right machine for working on any aircraft size. This unit provides 74 feet or 22.6 m of height and over fifteen m or fifty one feet of outreach. It includes many safety features that 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 within a radius of 6 feet, and still have fall protection while doing so.
The Soft Touch System is another feature option that will help to lessen any damage to the machinery or risk of any accidental contact during 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 the driver is alerted if the basket comes too near the aircraft surface.
The articulating jib would allow the operator better access and positioning to all external surfaces on any type of aircraft. This type of jib can be used in both controlled and uncontrolled places due to steady winds, jet blast standards of 80 mph and 90 mph gusts. An on-board air compressor option allows 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 machinery overall effectiveness, JLG has made numerous great feature options.
