JLG Launches Industry-First 150-Foot Boom Lift
The new 1500SJ delivers superior reach at elevated heights
JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, announced that it is adding a new model to the JLG line of Ultra Series boom lifts. The new 1500SJ is a 150-foot telescopic boom lift that delivers greater work envelope flexibility and superior reach at elevated heights.
“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-foot boom that requires only a weight permit – along with the support and reliability they have come to expect from JLG.”
The 1500SJ is the first boom lift that elevates operators 150 feet requiring only a weight permit. It includes a telescopic jib that extends up to 25 feet for additional vertical and horizontal reach. In addition, the 1500SJ delivers industry-leading terrainability and access to more work with the industry’s best work envelope.
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 lb. capacity, three steering modes and advanced systems to assist in safely positioning the platform.
