According to JLG Industries, an Oshkosh Corporation company, the new 1850SJ Ultra Boom is “the world’s largest self-propelled boom lift, providing nearly 3 million cubic feet of reachable space. With 19 stories of working height, says JLG, the new boom lift reaches more applications at unprecedented heights, moving aerial work platforms into applications previously reserved for truck-mounted booms. The JLG 1850SJ has a maximum capacity of 1,000 pounds, and the boom extends from ground to full height in less than five minutes.
A telescopic jib extends and retracts to provide additional reach, up-and-over capability, and the ability to telescope into and around structures in a variety of applications, including steel erection and energy-related construction (such as petrochemical, power generation, and wind plants).
The new boom lift also features an enhanced LCD display on the platform provides a graphic display of the operator’s position within the work envelope, thus assisting in positioning.
