JLG Industries Inc. launched two telescopic booms and one articulating boom at the 2015 Rental Show. The 400S and 460SJ are telescopic (straight) boom lifts, and the 450AJ is an articulating boom lift. All three machines offer class-leading platform capacities and lift times, which can improve operator productivity. Enhanced system designs and new hoods should increase in-service time, which improves utilization rates and owner total cost of ownership (TCO), according to the manufacturer.

With platform capacities up to 1,000 lbs. (453 kg), these machines allow operators to take more tools and supplies to their work, which can improve work output.

These lifts employ fewer hydraulic hoses — up to 40 percent fewer — and streamlined hose routing compared to previous models. This reduces the number of potential leak points and minimizes servicing. The MDI display on these machines communicates full language text, not just fault codes, which may simplify troubleshooting and reduce the duration of service calls.

The hoods feature a new design made of a new Dura Tough material. Dura Tough is a stout-yet-flexible polymer that won’t ding like steel and is not as brittle as ABS. Thus, fleet owners may spend less time repairing or replacing hoods damaged on the job. New latches, common with JLG’s Ultra Boom line of lifts, provide easy access and secure closure.

“JLG is listening to the industry. We’re building lifts that meet the industry’s calls for machines that are durable, easy to service, and improve operator productivity. The combination of these factors contributes to lower total cost of ownership and better ROI for our customers,” said Corey Raymo, JLG Industries’ global product director of AWPs. “These JLG machines are also designed for the world market, so they are easily transportable. They can be driven into shipping containers and even have options for oversized tires that can be flipped to ship.”
