JLG to expand compact crawler boom line into 100-foot height class

JLG Industries previewed the JLG X1000AJ Compact Crawler Boom (CCB) at The Rental Show in February, expanding its CCB line into the 100-foot height class.

The X1000AJ provides a work envelope with 56 feet up and over and 54 feet of horizontal outreach, plus a 105-foot work height. It also boasts a 500-pound unrestricted platform capacity, allowing operators to bring more materials to the work area, fulfilling the fundamental need for a safe and productive work environment.

"We are excited to bring the X1000AJ to market," said Randy Marzicola, director, channel development for JLG Industries, Inc. "Our innovative line of CCBs has rapidly expanded with this newest model addressing our customer's wants and needs. By offering a full range of CCB machines we reinforce our focus on developing equipment solutions that meet the requirements of our customers and their customers."
The X1000's boom includes a new articulated column design, giving operators the ability to work flush with the surface of a structure. Smart technology improves boom functionality by enabling multiple simultaneous movements, introducing a go-home function and by delivering 90 degrees +/- jib movement for added reach. The machine also features below-grade capabilities for those who need to complete work both above and below ground level.  

A compact footprint allows the X1000AJ to fit through a standard double doorway for easy movement between indoor and outdoor applications. Non-marking tracks, which retract, along with a patented platform disconnect system, make it easy to maneuver this machine through tight spaces. The X1000AJ is less than 22 feet long and under 20 feet long when the platform is removed. 

One-touch self-levelling outriggers stabilize and level the machine on slopes up to 16 degrees. Stability is further enhanced by large, Teflon-coated outrigger pads, while standard forklift pockets and lift hooks allow for easy loading and unloading. SkyGuard enhanced control panel protection comes standard. 

The X1000AJ's interactive LCD display communicates key operator information.

An advanced technology, 76-Volt lithium-ion system is available to provide clean, quiet operation and performance comparable to or better than traditional gas engine power. A Kubota diesel power source is also available. The X1000AJ comes with fully synthetic biodegradable hydraulic fluid for use in environmentally sensitive areas.
