BiI-Jax Celebrates 60th Anniversary With Its First-Ever Self-Propelled Boom Lift

Wed June 06, 2007 - National Edition

In celebration of its 60th anniversary, Bil-Jax Inc. will enter new markets in 2007 with the introduction of its first-ever self-propelled boom lift, the SLT-3632. The company also will launch a series of trailer-mounted aerial lifts specifically designed and approved for the European market.

The SLT-3632 represents the first offering in a planned series of X-Boom machines. The X-Booms will match industry standards for gradeability, platform height and outreach, four-wheel drive speed and maneuverability, but will be lighter and less expensive than conventional self-propelled boom lifts, the company said.

According to Steve Citron, Bil-Jax’s director of business development, the X-Booms represent “a new category of self-propelled boom lifts that will satisfy a longstanding, unmet market need.” Six models are planned, with additional telescopic and articulating models arriving later this year.
