Ritchie bros to auction brand new crawler booms has learned that a total of nine 2001 unused JLG 600SC crawler mounted booms will be auctioned off at the next Ritchie bros auction to be held in, Moerdjik, The Netherlands from October 1 – 3, 2003. Of particular interest to readers, however, is that it is the policy of the Canada-based industrial auction specialist that all equipment must be auctioned without a reserve and cannot be withdrawn once listed. All nine JLG units will therefore be sold to the highest bidder on the day.

JLG 600SC crawler mounted boom.

The 600SC is an 18.3 metre platform height telescopic boom lift based on JLG’s 600 series wheeled version but mounted on a crawler carriage. “Our 600 series straight boom wheeled versions lend the exact same design and controllability to the crawler versions so the increase in crawler boom technology often runs parallel with that of the wheeled versions,” says Brian Jackson, product manager at JLG. “However, the 600SC’s 55 per cent gradeability and a significantly smaller ‘pressure per centimetre squared’ than the wheeled versions, given by the crawler boom’s much larger footprint, makes navigation of boggy job sites much more manageable.” The unit also features a single drive/steer joystick control and a counter rotation feature which allows the tracks to travel in opposite directions to provide a zero turning radius.

Also on sale at the auction will be an unusually large number of used platforms from the likes of Aichi, Grove Terex, UpRight and Haulotte, while cranes on sale will range from rough terrain units to knuckle booms to tower cranes. The three-day sale begins on the Wednesday, October 1 with internet bidding for aerial lifts scheduled for the last day of the auction. You never know, you might land a bargain.
