Used JLG Straight Boom Lifts
The criteria for purchasing a used JLG straight boom lift for sale has many variables. The market for boom lifts has improved and grown dramatically in the past fifty years. This had made finding used JLG straight boom lifts for sale a more rewarding, yet a sometimes complicated, experience. Today’s boom lifts come in a large variety. There are small man lifts that can barely reach twenty feet and then there are mammoth-sized aerial lifts that extend well above two-hundred feet. Chances are, your needs are somewhere in between these two extremes.
JLG has been a pioneer in the man lift market for the majority of its existence. Whenever you want to see the latest and greatest boom lifts on the market all you need to do is look at their catalog. Few other companies have machines that can compete, much less surpass what they have available.
The only problem with buying the newest and the best through a JLG supplier is the price tag. Not to mention, there will typically be a newer model in the next 9 to 12 months. That makes your huge investment a bit of a waste. Instead, your goal should be to find used JLG straight boom lifts for sale that are capable of handling your workload.
Estimating Your Needs For A Used JLG Straight Boom Lift.
You can’t find a lift capable of handling your workload until you fully understand what that load is. How much weight will you be moving on a regular basis? How high up will it be going? How far will it need to extend horizontally? How many people will need to fit on the platform? What additional concerns, such as fuel efficiency and the ability to handle rough terrain, are important?
These are all very important questions that must be answered before you can purchase a used aerial lift. Of all these questions, perhaps the most important is how far up will you need to go? Similarly, how far out horizontally will you need to go? These two specifications are what define most lifts.
The weight capacity is next in line in terms of importance. However, you have a couple of options here that you give some slight wiggle room. For one, it may be possible to decrease the weight being transported and increase the number of trips. This isn’t always the case, but it may be. Second, most JLG cherry pickers have a “heavy-duty variation”. This is a variation of a particular model with an increased weight capacity.
Searching for used man lifts using the above specifications will narrow down the list significantly. You can then apply your additional concerns, such as possible attachments, fuel efficiency, and terrain options to that list. Even then, you’ll likely end up with a list of more straight boom lifts than you n
