When Bil-Jax Inc., Archbold, Ohio, entered the self-propelled boom lift market in early 2007, the company decided to focus on offering the easiest product to sell to its already developed clientele: smaller, independent rental companies. Bil-Jax established a strong presence with this market through the popular Summit Series trailer-mounted aerial lifts.

JLG Industries, McConnellsburg, Pa., has built more 40-foot boom lifts for longer than any other company. In total, the company has delivered in excess of 40,000 40-foot gas/propane or diesel-powered booms.

The Model 400S is actually JLG's fifth-generation 40-foot boom, and along with sister machine 460SJ, which features a 6-foot articulating jib, they make up a powerful one-two product punch. The 400S demonstrated at the Boom Lift Showcase featured four-wheel drive and an optional oscillating axle, a feature the company pioneered back in 1981.
