JLG offering six-foot and eight-foot tri-entry platform options for boom lifts
New platforms offer three access points for enhanced entry and exit
JLG Industries, Inc. has added six-foot and eight-foot platform options for most JLG engine-powered boom lifts. The new platforms give both single and multiple occupants additional options to enter or exit.
"We understand that jobsites are constantly changing which can create challenges for navigating boom lifts into position, so having several ways to enter or exit a platform provides added flexibility and safety," said Bill Dovey, senior product manager, booms, JLG Industries.
"Our tri-entry platforms give operators multiple access points when positioned against a building or other structure." The platforms include two drop bars and one self-closing gate for entering and exiting and are available in dimensions of 72 by 36 inches or 96 by 36 inches.
Additionally, the platforms can be used in combination with many popular JLG accessories, including the newly released Bolt-On External Fall Arrest System. The six-foot and eight-foot tri-entry platforms are available as an aftermarket purchase or on new whole goods orders.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
