With two JLG 1850SJ Ultra Boom lifts already working in the field, MacAllister Rentals is looking forward to taking delivery of its third unit shortly. The Indianapolis-based rental company already has demand to keep the 185-foot lift busy.
“This machine gives us great flexibility so we can continue to provide customers with the right equipment for their specific project and back it with our outstanding service,” said Jay Swearingen, rental services division manager for MacAllister Rentals.
Currently the tallest self-propelled boom lift on the market, JLG Industries launched its 1850SJ Ultra boom with nearly three million cubic feet of reachable space earlier this year. Delivering 19 stories of working height, this latest innovation in the JLG line of Ultra Series boom lifts reaches more applications at unprecedented heights, moving aerial work platforms into applications previously reserved for truck-mounted booms and allowing operators to work more effectively and productively on the jobsite.
“This one-of-a-kind machine represents the latest example of JLG’s long and well-documented history of innovation in boom lift design and manufacturing,” said Jeff Ford, JLG Industries global product director, aerial work platforms.
The JLG 1850SJ offers a maximum capacity of 1,000 pounds, allowing operators to move more tools and materials to the elevated worksite. Productivity is further enhanced with faster cycle speeds, enabling the boom to extend from ground to full height in less than five minutes and operators to spend more time working and less time positioning the lift.
