Hear Customers Share their Experiences with JLG’s Self-Leveling Chassis Technology

Not too long ago, JLG introduced a unique, new self-leveling chassis technology to the market. It allows JLG® 670SJ boom lifts to automatically level on slopes up to 10 degrees, enabling operation on uneven jobsite terrain. 
Benefits of Self Leveling Technology at a Glance

The concept for this technology developed by watching how boom lifts were being used on job sites and through talking with operators about their pain points and moments of inefficiency, such as:

  • Constant repositioning 
  • Removing small areas of earth with a compact loader to level the ground
  • Using a longer boom lift to reach the work area from a level spot beyond where they’d ideally like to place the machine
  • Using multiple boom lifts
  • Cribbing the machine on a localized platform to attain a level work surface
  • Shoring up the ground or stone leveling a raceway to attain a level work surface

This technology adjusts the boom lift’s chassis to the ground conditions — rather than operators having to adjust the ground conditions to the machine, leading to significant productivity gains throughout the workday.

In concept, it all sounds great, but what about when put to the test in real-world applications? Does self-leveling chassis technology live up to the hype?

The answer is: Yes. But quite honestly, it’s one of those things you must feel during operation to believe. And, we’re ready to show you what this new self-leveling chassis technology is all about.
