JLG Industries Inc., is adding a new model to the JLG line of ultra series boom lifts. The new 1500SJ is a 150-ft. (46 m) telescopic boom lift that delivers greater work envelope flexibility and superior reach at elevated heights, according to the manufacturer.
“We are proud to introduce the 1500SJ to the industry and our customers, providing them with a lift that offers greater flexibility and tremendous reach,” said Chris Mellott, JLG Industries vice-president - sales and market development for the Americas. “By providing the largest self-propelled telescopic boom lift, we are addressing a previously unmet need for customers who are looking for a 150-ft. boom that requires no special transportation permits along with the support and reliability they have come to expect from JLG.”
The 1500SJ is the first boom lift that elevates operators 150 ft. without requiring any transportation permits. It includes a telescopic jib that extends up to 25 ft. (7.6 m) for additional vertical and horizontal reach.
Standard steel hoods provide improved durability, reduced cost of ownership and greater long-term value. In addition, operators receive key information with new graphic LCD displays in the platform to further increase ease of operation. As with all ultra booms, the 1500SJ delivers dual 1,000/500 lbs. (453/227 kg) capacity, three steering modes and advanced systems to assist in safely positioning the platform.
