LGMG North America adds the T72J to its telescopic boom lift line. The T72J has a platform height of 72 feet with a working height of 78 feet, a horizontal outreach of 57 feet, and a 661 pounds unrestricted and 992 pounds restricted platform dual capacity. It can accommodate three operators with the maximum load.
The T72J, like the T65J and T85J, is standard equipped with a large platform of 8 feet in length and 3 feet in width to maximize the operator's working space and provide the space needed to accomplish tough jobs at height. It also features GFCI power to platform standard on the boom. The new three-door design on the platform provides ease of entrance as well as convenience in material handling for the users.
The T72J is also equipped with a T4F emission-compliant engine while the throttle is controlled by the onboard system to automatically reduce noise and reduce fuel consumption while being more environmentally friendly.
This boom lift follows others in the company’s telescopic line by being 4x4 drive, having rough terrain tires, oscillating axles, and a 45 percent climbing ability that allows operators to tackle a variety of conditions. The swing-out engine tray allows for easy maintenance and servicing so that downtime is kept to a minimum. In addition, LGMG boom lifts share common parts and components to keep things simple and will be available on SmartEquip after the boom is available in the U.S. market.
The T72J utilizes a CAN bus system to make the electronic controls more reliable while the digital diagnostics system provides immediate fault code information on the display screen at the ground control panel while signaling a problem with an alarm.
The T72J also has optional features such as having a generator equipped, glass panel holder for glass workers, non-marking solid tires, secondary guarding and telematics, in addition to other features upon request.
The T72J is ANSI A92.20 compliant and will be available in the North American market in Winter 2021 or Spring 2022.
