2016 JLG 740AJ

On the job site, days are measured by productivity. Your productivity. Which means you need equipment that stands up to the day’s demands. JLG® engine powered articulating boom lifts give you the extra reach you need to work over and around obstacles on the job site. They offer exceptional outreach, high capacity, versatile performance and easy maintenance. Larger work envelopes provide you with access to those hard-to-reach places.

Made specifically for aircraft work, the 740AJ has an articulating jib for access to all external surfaces on any aircraft. The exclusive Fall Arrest system and options, like the Soft Touch platform, make this the ideal machine for aircraft maintenance.
