H800AJ boom lift has a hybrid engine
JLG launched the H800AJ boom lift featuring a hybrid electric motor/generator and a Tier 4 Final engine at CONEXPO-CON/AGG.
The new boom lift is based on the company's established 800AJ articulating boom, with the same controls layout, parts, features, accessories and optional equipment, but featuring an electric as well as a conventional engine.
Together, the motor/generator and engine combination provide diesel-like performance, says the company. The machine can also run exclusively in electric mode through its battery pack located in the counterweight. The batteries are maintenance free and charge on demand by the machine’s generator during operation. In electric mode, the machine is quieter with zero emissions, making it suitable for work in city, green and low emissions zones.
The platform height of the H800AJ is 80 feet, with an unrestricted platform capacity of 500 pounds. The unit comes standard with the JLG SkyGuard enhanced control panel protection system for operator safety.
The H800AJ’s standard jib raises and lowers to provide additional reach, as well as up and over, giving the operator the ability to position the platform independent of the main boom. An oscillating axle and four-wheel drive offer improved traction during operation on uneven surfaces and off slab. dor increa productivity.
