H340AJ provides power and durability of a diesel-powered machine while saving operational costs

Donnerstag, 27. Februar 2014
McConnellsburg, Pa. — Feb. 28, 2014 — JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a global leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, today introduced the world’s first true four-wheel electric-drive hybrid boom, the H340AJ. The product will be displayed at CONEXPO 2014 in Las Vegas (booth #1037).

Combining diesel fuel and an electric power system, the JLG H340AJ provides the power and durability of a diesel-powered machine while saving operational costs.  In fact, compared to an all-diesel machine, the H340AJ provides substantial fuel savings, is quieter (less than 69 decibels), and produces fewer carbon emissions.

“This innovative lift is designed to perform on par with its diesel powered alternative.  It’s an extremely hard-working machine,” explained Jeff Ford, JLG Industries global product director, aerial work platforms.  “The JLG H340AJ has four independent electric-drive motors that provide unprecedented rough terrain performance and relies on an environmentally friendly, Tier 4 diesel-powered generator for recharging. 

Electric power is stored in eight 6V batteries, each requiring less recharging time than lead acid batteries.  Because the machine can run on all-electric power, it uses less diesel fuel than an all-diesel machine, reducing overall operational costs.

Customers also benefit from the H340AJ’s durability.  Whether in two-wheel drive (standard) or four-wheel drive (optional), the hybrid boom can operate in harsh environments, including muddy and rugged terrain.  A steel hood increases the boom’s durability, making it ideal for general contractors, facility managers, painters, and electrical contractors, among others.

In addition, the JLG H340AJ requires less maintenance – thanks to brushless AC motors.  The variable-speed motors operate smoothly and quietly, and feature proportional control.  When the operator adjusts the controls in the platform, the hybrid boom makes a smooth, gradual transition from start to maximum travel speed (3.1 mph) and anything in between.  The result is a smooth ride for the operator.

Direct AC electric drive reduces the number of hydraulic hoses and fittings as well as the potential for leaks.  Battery-only operation allows the H340AJ to be used indoors or outdoors and in other emissions-free areas.  In terms of access, the hybrid boom features a platform height of nearly 34 feet, a 17-foot up-and-over reach, and a platform capacity of 500 pounds.

“The H340AJ gives customers the power, durability, and versatility they need in a machine of this caliber,” Ford added.  “It’s not only the right machine for the job, but it’s also a cost-effective and environmentally friendly alternative to all-diesel machines.”
