JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK], and a leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, announced that the 340AJ boom lift was a recipient of Equipment Today’s inaugural Contractors’ Top 50 Products Award.
Recipients of this award were selected based on the amount of reader inquiries and page views from June 2010 to June 2011 for new products that were published in Equipment Today magazine and posted on the Equipment Network on ForConstructionPros.com. The 340AJ boom lift, along with the other award recipients, will be recognized in a special section in the September 2011 edition of Equipment Today and online at ForConstructionPros.com.
“We’re honored to accept this award, which illustrates the value contractors see in the 340AJ, including its durability and low cost of ownership,” said Tim Morris, senior vice president of sales, market development & customer support. “We strive to provide the best products to help our customers perform their jobs as efficiently as possible, and this award reaffirms our commitment to meeting our customers’ needs.”
With a lift height of 34 feet, 20 feet of horizontal reach and a 17-foot up-and-over reach, the 340AJ has a low gross vehicle weight of 9,700 lb. The boom lift is easier to service and maintain, features steel hoods to increase its durability and boasts a 500-pound capacity. The 340AJ meets sustainability regulations with its environmentally-friendly Tier 4 diesel engine. A gas/liquid propane engine is also available.
The lower cost of ownership and acquisition cost, coupled with its reach and terrainability, make the 340AJ ideal for general contractors, steel erectors, painters and commercial construction workers, among many others.
