JLG Industries has introduced the world's tallest and farthest reaching articulating boomlift, the 1500AJP, with a working envelope of more than 74,000 cubic metres of reachable space.
The 1500AJP, allows operators to reach more work space - 60 percent more than the next closest Articulated Boom on the market - and take more materials with them than any other articulating boom lift. That's because the new boom lift features a category-leading work envelope, up-and-over height of 18.3 metres, a working outreach of 23.5 metres, and a platform capacity of 270 kilograms unrestricted and 450 kilograms restricted. Operators will fully appreciate the 450 kilogram platform capacity which is available throughout the vast majority of the working envelope.
The machine also features a standard 2.4 metre jib that raises and lowers 135 degrees to provide additional reach, up-and-over capability, and the ability to position the platform independent of the main boom. In addition, the jib pivots horizontally 125 degrees to provide extra manuverability at elevated work sites.
The 1500AJP leads the industry in lift speeds, allowing operators to spend more time working and less time positioning teh machine. The booms QuikStik feature enables the lift to move from the ground to maximum height in under 3 minutes and return to the ground at the same speed.
Operators will appreciate the LCD panel that clearly communicates the position of the boom in the work envelope and the status of its operating systems. They can also be assured of a smooth, comfortable transition from full function speed to full stop, thanks to the end of stroke cylinder dampening.
"After extensive voice of customer sessions, we designed the 1500AJP from the ground up" said Arron Cooper JLG Industries Product Manager Australia & New Zealand. 'The result is another industry-leading boom lift that again demonstrates JLG's long history of pioneering innovation in machine design and manufacturing."
The 1500AJP offers improved serviceability, thanks to a swing-out engine tray that provides easy access to key service components, and a hydraulic system that simplifies hose routings and reduces leak points. In addtion, an LCD panel located at the ground control panel uses text and fault codes to improve troubleshooting and reduce the number and duration of service calls.
Other time-saving features when positioning the lift include:-
40 percent gradeability
360 degree continuous turntable rotation
Four wheel drive and crab steer
Hydraulically powered pivoting axles that expand quickly for fast set-up time.
