With almost 3 million cubic feet of reachable space, JLG Industries recently announced the world’s largest self-propelled boom lifts.
Also called aerial lifts, boom lifts are used to lift construction workers, maintenance personnel, mechanics and others high into the air. JLG’s 1850SJ Ultra boom is a super-sized addition to the company’s line of reliable, affordable boom lifts and aerial lifts.
The 1850SJ goes 19 stories high. It will allow workers more access to more areas than ever before. Anyone interested in the giant lift can get a sneak peak at the CONEXPO March 4-8. The event will take place at the Las Vegas Convention Center, and JLG will be in booth #1037.
With a max load of a half-ton (1,000 pounds) the new lift can hold more people, tools and cargo, which means more resources can be moved to a work area. Plus, the 1850SJ Ultra boom has faster cycle speeds, so the boom can extend from the ground to full height in less than 5 minutes – slow enough to transport workers safely, but fast enough to save valuable time on the job.
Other features include a telescopic jib, improved LCD display with more information including service codes and other maintenance data.
“From the larger work envelope and unprecedented access, to the fastest lift speeds, telescopic jib and LCD displays, the JLG 1850SJ boom can allow customers to work more effectively and productively on the jobsite,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries global product director. “It’s a true industry-leading innovation for the lift and access, construction, and maintenance industries.”
