JLG Industries is offering Bi-Energy technology on its X770AJ and X1000AJ compact crawler boom lifts, reducing these machines’ noise and exhaust emissions. The system equips the machines with two full-sized, independent power sources, combining an emissions-free lithium ion battery pack with a diesel engine to allow operators to work indoors and outside with one machine.

“The Bi-Energy system is designed to maintain the high performance and efficiency our customers expect from the X770AJ and X1000AJ, while minimising their carbon footprint and decibel levels,” says Angela Patterson, JLG boom lift product management specialist. “With this option, operators can choose the best power source for the application (either the engine or the lithium ion batteries). This dual power source design means that JLG Bi-Energy models can be used in a wide variety of settings — from general greenfield construction projects to environmentally sensitive job sites.”

The X770AJ comes with a 100Ah 76V battery pack, while the X1000AJ has a 150Ah 76V pack. The lithium ion batteries can be charged from an outlet at any time, including while the machine is in use. Both machines have a Kubota D902 21.6-hp at 3,200 rpm diesel engine. 

JLG plans to make the new Bi-Energy option available on additional compact crawler boom lifts in the future.
