JLG® Introduces Tow-Pro(TM) Trailer Mounted Boom Lifts with More Capabilities and Operator Convenience
McConnellsburg, PA, April 5, 2005 - JLG Industries, Inc. is introducing Tow-Pro(tm) trailer mounted boom lifts with larger working envelopes and faster towing speeds (up to 65 mph) than similar products on the market. They also feature self-leveling hydraulic outriggers, a removable platform control box with simplified one-handed proportional controls and a unique boom design. Tow-Pro Model T350 has 35-ft. platform height with 20-ft. horizontal reach and Tow-Pro Model T500J has 50-ft. platform height that includes a 4-ft. jib boom with 130° vertical motion and has 30-ft. horizontal reach. Both machines feature 370° non-continuous turntable rotation and have 500-lbs. unrestricted capacity in their 30 x 48-in. aluminum platform. Power is provided by 24V, 220 ampere-hour batteries or from an optional 9 hp Honda gasoline engine. Other standard features on both models include surge brakes, parking brakes, an hour meter, tilt alarm, air and water lines and a 110V-AC receptacle in the platform. An important option that is available on both the 35 and 50-ft. models is a drive and set system. It allows the outriggers to be set or retracted and the machine to be driven by the operator from the platform when it is in the stowed position. The drive and set system allows workers to easily move the machines short distances when they are on a generally firm and level surface to do such jobs as tree trimming or changing the light bulbs on a series of parking lot fixtures. Productivity enhancing options for both trailer mounted boom lifts include a mounting tray for customer provided generators, pressure washers or air compressors, a convenient glazier/panel tray, air and water lines to the platform, and a 90° platform rotor. For the 50-ft. height Model T500J, there is also a bolt-on material handling hook that allows lifting of roof trusses, shingle bundles and other construction components.
