JLG announces new 150ft

JLG is launching a new 150ft/45.72 metre boom lift, the 1500SJ at Conexpo in March which will be available around the same time, probably late March or early April. The new lift will be the largest of the JLG Ultra Series boom lifts and big brother to the company’s 1350SJP with which it shares a common chassis from the slew ring down.

A prototype JLG 1500SJ was shown last November.

The new boom features the same four section main boom as the 1350, plus a new two section 7.5 metre/25ft telescopic articulating jib which gives a maximum outreach at 38 metres of over 18 metres. Weight has increased modestly from the 1350's 20.4 tonnes to 21.8 tonnes (48,000 lbs). Overall transport length is 13.1 metres (43ft).

With the axles retracted the 1500SJ measures 2.49 metres wide (3.81 metres extended).

The 45 metre 1500SJ will be far easier to transport than the company’s existing 150ft articulated boom lift - the aging 150HAX. The major benefit of the new model is the overall retracted width of just 2.49 metres (3.81m extended) and its overall height of just over three metres, allowing it to be moved without special width or height permits. The 150HAX is 3.5 metres wide when retracted (5.49 extended) and 4.27 metres high.

The 1500 is fitted with the 75hp TD2011 diesel and steel covers are standard. The platform capacity on the new boom lift will be the same as the HAX at 1,000lbs (453kg) and 500lbs (227kg), depending on whether manual or automatic mode is selected.

The 1500SJ will be unveiled officially at Conexpo.

The new lift was shown to our editorial staff in November at a special unveiling with information embargoed until this week. So look out for more details and photos during the day and in the next issue of Cranes & Access.
