The JLG  X770AJ Compact Crawler Boom is the largest boom of its kind that JLG offers, featuring a working height of 84 feet and 500 pounds unrestricted capacity, which allows workers to take more materials with them on the boom’s redesigned platform to increase productivity. The machine is versatile, thanks to a lithium battery option that lends itself to clean, quiet work, such as indoor applications. Versatility is further enhanced thanks to self-levelling outriggers that level the machine, and non-marking rubber tracks that minimize impact on sensitive flooring and landscaping. Additionally, the upper boom with an articulating jib provides a horizontal reach of 43 feet.

The X770AJ also features a narrow chassis and a unique narrow outrigger setting, making it easier to fit through doorways and gates. Transporting the boom is also easier, thanks to fork lift pockets and dedicated lift hooks. In addition, the X770AJ is designed for a lower total cost of ownership with hoods that open wide, making service access easier, and a LCD panel that communicates in text – rather than fault codes – for faster troubleshooting and reduced need for on-site service calls.
