JLG Industries has introduced the new 450AJ HC3 boom lift, adding to the JLG Hi-Capacity product line that includes articulating and telescopic boom lift models with platform heights ranging from 40 ft. (12.19 m) to 86 ft. (26.21 m). The 450AJ HC3 model has a 45 ft. (13.72 m) platform height and 25 ft. (7.62 m) of horizontal outreach. It also features the HC3 product line's three capacity zones - 660/750/1,000 lb. (300/340/450 kg), giving it the ability to carry up to three occupants and tools to height in every zone. Complying with the latest ANSI A92.20/CSA B354.6 industry standards, the 450AJ HC3 boom lift is equipped with the company's zero-calibration, automatic load-sensing system. "JLG has engineered load-sensing technology that is advanced enough to allow operators to respond to an overload situation, quickly and easily," says Randi McClure, marketing manager for boom lifts at JLG. "By removing or unloading items from the machine's platform, for example, the 450AJ HC3 model will recognise when it's back within its rated load capacity, then enable operations to resume without the need to recalibrate the machine." The 450AJ HC3 boom also includes a chassis tilt alarm that alerts the operator when the machine is on a slope greater than five degrees. "This innovative JLG system permits operators to utilise restricted functionality to return the machine to a work area within acceptable operating conditions," says McClure. "Once the machine recognises that it is back within the allowable tilt range, operators are able to reposition the machine or grade the worksite to complete work within the rated load and slope tolerance of the machine." Enhancing the operator experience, the LED display in the platform and ground controls on JLG HC3 boom lifts improves visibility by sensing ambient light conditions and adjusting brightness to optimise operator comfort and readability.
