Articulating boom lifts – the benefit of thinking big

Articulating boom lifts deliver maximum flexibility when working at height. JMS’s JLG 1500AJP also delivers maximum height and reach.

The super boom is the world’s tallest articulating boom lift, which gives it unique advantages when working in confined areas or at multiple locations at serious height levels.

World beating boom lift

The JLG 1500AJP has a maximum working height of 48.15 metres and a maximum outreach of 23.55 metres.

Straight away this gives the platform advantages over other powered access hire options for many large-scale steel erection projects on complex construction sites.

As an articulating boom lift, the JLG 1500AJP can be positioned to work at multiple points and heights across a façade and up and over it without having to be relocated.

This is a major advantage for safety and the logistics of managing working at height programmes on sites where multiple contractors carrying out different functions must work in close proximity.

It’s no wonder then that the JLG 1500AJP self-propelled articulating boom has the largest working envelop of any platform on the market, anywhere in the world.

Unrivalled working envelope

As the platform also has full drive height capability, the operator is in complete control and can reposition the basket rapidly and safely wherever they are working within that envelope.

The JLG 1500AJP boom lift has an excellent basket capacity of 450kg – for carrying personnel, tools and materials needed for long working periods at height – which drops to 272kg only at its envelope’s extremities.

Perhaps, it is the outreach that is most impressive. The JLG 1500AJP can extend the equivalent in length of a full-sized tennis court and still be working at 18.29 metres, giving Andy Murray plenty of room for a telling lob.

Ideal for structural surveys

This makes the platform the ideal candidate to carry out surveys over low load-bearing structures, such as glass roofs, of which there are a growing number in modern cities.

The JLG 1500AJP super boom is powered by a highly-efficient low-noise, low-emission diesel engine.

Its ability to be positioned with precision, aided by an articulating jib, also means it is in demand for high-level engineering and installation tasks. This includes the construction and maintenance of telecommunication masts and wind turbines.

Advanced JLG features

The super boom also has advanced JLG features as standard, helping our access rental customers work safer, faster and for longer at height.

These include QuickStik for faster basket positioning. JLG’s SkyGuard anti-entrapment and crushing system. Also, automatic axle deployment that has the platform ready for operation within one minute.

This operational capability is matched by JMS’s service promise, of prompt delivery and collection and a wide array of bespoke options for multiple machine hire and maintenance support.

We work with clients to put together fleets of powered access platforms of all types and sizes to meet all working at height needs, for example through every phase of a construction project.
