JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh company, introduces its first straight-jib (SJ) compact crawler boom lift — the X660SJ. With 65 feet, 7 inches of platform height, 500 lbs. of capacity for up to two workers, 39 feet of horizontal reach and indoor/outdoor versatility, the new JLGX660SJ model is ideal for a wide range of applications, on a variety of job sites.
The architecture of this new straight-boom compact crawler boom lift enables operators to reach full height more efficiently.
Other performance-enhancing features the X660SJ is equipped with include:
- Envelope tracking operation for work alongside buildings, walls and other infrastructure. With a single control function, operators can boom up/down, while also telescoping out/in, so that the platform travels a path perpendicular to the ground
- Multiple position, one-touch self-leveling outriggers to provide flexibility to work in tight areas and to maximize the working envelope
- "Go Home" and "Back to Work" functions for ease of returning to stowed or recorded work position. Software optimizes the path to the stowed or saved work position based on machine stability
The X660SJ comes standard with a Kubotadiesel engine, but an environmentally friendly lithium-ion battery and AC drive system option is available, as is JLG’s new bi-energy option. This alternative equips the JLG compact crawler boom lift with two full-sized, independent power sources, combining an emissions-free lithium-ion battery pack with a dependable diesel engine, enabling operators to choose the best power source for the application — either the engine or the lithium-ion batteries. Common to all three power sources, all JLG compact crawler boom lifts available in North America, including the new X660SJ, come standard with fully synthetic biodegradable hydraulic fluid so it can be used with confidence in environmentally sensitive areas.
