The Importance of Hydration on the Job Site

JLG® Compact Crawler Boom Hits Home Run at Camden Yards
JLG Compact Crawler Boom Hits Home Run at Camden Yards
Baltimore’s Camden Yards features two yellow foul poles salvaged from the old Memorial Stadium. These historic structures are 70 feet tall and are frequently repainted to ensure visibility for fans and players during both day and night play. Due to their height and shape, however, painting them has always presented a challenge to the Maryland Stadium Authority. Then the X700AJ compact crawler boom joined the team. Now stadium crews can safely and efficiently repaint the foul poles. Learn more about how the X700AJ saved the day at Camden Yards in this article from ForConstructionPros.com.
