JLG Industries Inc., McConnellsburg, Pa., previewed the 150-ft. platform height 1500AJP, its tallest and farthest reaching articulating boom lift, this week at Bauma. The machine will be available for shipment to customers in early 2017. With a working envelope of more than 2.6 million cubic feet of reachable space. 

The new boom lift features an up-and-over height of 60 ft., a working outreach of 77 ft., and platform capacity of 595 lbs. unrestricted and 992 lbs. restricted.

The machine also features a standard 7.9-ft. 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 maneuverability at elevated work sites. The boom’s Quick Stick feature enables the lift to move from the ground to maximum platform height in 2 minutes, 15 seconds 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 end of stroke cylinder dampening.

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 addition, 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.

The 1500AJP fits on a standard flatbed trailer. This reduces costs associated with transporting the machine, and reduces the total cost of ownership. The 50/50 weight distribution on the axles also contributes to transportability, as the lift is easier to load, as well as great terrainability on the job site.

Other features when positioning the lift include:

  • 40 percent gradeability
  • 360-degree continuous turntable rotation
  • Four-wheel drive
  • Hydraulically powered pivoting axles that expand quickly for fast setup time
