JLG Expands Range of Hi-Capacity HC3 Boom Lifts

JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and leading global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, announced its expanded range of Hi-Capacity HC3 boom lifts.

Available now are the 400S, 460SJ, 600S, 660SJ and 860SJ HC3 models, while the 450AJ, 600AJ, 800AJ and 800S HC3 booms are set to roll off production lines in the coming months.

The JLG® Hi-Capacity HC3 boom lifts reportedly offer an expanded work envelope and three capacity zones for greater reach than competitive models offering one or two capacity zones. The JLG Hi-Capacity HC3 models are rated for three occupants with tools in all three zones.

The 400 Series Hi-Capacity HC3 boom lifts include the 40-foot platform 400S HC3 model and the 46-foot platform 460SJ HC3 model, while the 600 Series Hi-Capacity HC3 models consist of the 600AJ HC3 and 600S HC3, which each deliver a 60-foot platform height, and the 660SJ, which boasts a 66-foot platform height. Meanwhile, the 800 Series Hi-Capacity HC3 booms include the 80-foot platform height 800AJ HC3 and 800S HC3, and the 86-ft 860SJ HC3.

All models reportedly offer 750- and 1,000-pound restricted capacity zones. The 400 Series, 600 Series and 800AJ models also offer a 660-pound unrestricted capacity zone, while the 800S and 860SJ have a 500-pound unrestricted capacity zone.

An innovative load sensing system from JLG limits operation of a machine when the platform is overloaded, automatically keeping operation within the allowable work envelope. The zero-calibration system on all HC3 models eliminates the need to use external weights to calibrate the lift. This could save time and effort, while increasing productivity.

New LED displays reportedly improve visibility of the platform and ground consoles during operation. The displays sense ambient light conditions and adjust brightness accordingly, which could help maximize visibility and operator comfort. Additionally, an innovative chassis tilt alarm alerts the operator when the machine is on a slope that exceeds five degrees.
