The compact crawler, narrow and compact in design, can be used in multiple ways indoors and outdoors. The next generation of JLG Compact Crawler Booms, X500AJ and X600AJ, have increased to 500 pounds of unrestricted capacity throughout the working envelope, allowing operators to reach more and increase productivity.
“We listened to our customers, and we are excited to deliver these robust machines to address the wants and needs of the rental market,” said Randy Marzicola, JLG Industries director of business development, in a press release.
The JLG X500AJ features a 56-foot working height and 50-foot platform height, and the X600AJ unit features a 66-foot working height with a 60-foot platform height, both lightweight for load-sensitive surfaces and ease of transport. The addition of forklift pockets and lifting hooks on the outriggers allow for convenient loading and positioning. Both machines offer a green lithium-ion battery option for quiet, clean, zero-emissions operation.
