JLG Industries Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company and a leading global manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telehandlers, has expanded its line of Compact Crawler Booms with the X430AJ, which was introduced at CONEXPO 2017, Gold Lot booth #G3946.

“The JLG X430AJ was designed with the customer in mind,” says Paul Kreutzwiser, JLG Industries Global Category Director, Aerial Work Platforms. “It offers an outstanding horizontal reach of 21 ft. 7 in. and a 500-lb. unrestricted platform capacity, allowing operators access to a greater range of work areas.”

With a stowed width of 2 ft. 5 in., the X430AJ easily moves through doorways, gates and yards. Additionally, the new design can be transported by forklift or crane, thanks to its forklift pockets and lifting eyes.

The X430AJ uses a Lithium-Ion 2.0 power system for eco-friendly operation indoors or outdoors without sacrificing machine performance. As with other JLG Compact Crawler Booms, the machine features a tracked wheel carriage that climbs ramps, non-marking tracks for use on sensitive flooring and landscape applications, and versatile, auto-leveling outriggers for added stability when working on slopes or uneven ground. The design of the carriage permits climbs up to 40%, while a standard SkyGuard enhanced control panel protection system increases operator confidence for improved productivity on the jobsite.
