    JLG Compact Crawler Boom Aces Tests at Michigan High Schools
    High school facilities see a lot of traffic and a fair amount of abuse. At Walled Lake Consolidated School District in Walled Lake, Michigan, maintenance supervisor Dave Watkins faced a wide range of repair challenges across 24 buildings.

The maintenance team turned to Cloverdale Equipment Company in Oak Park, Michigan, for suggestions, and soon the JLG X500AJ Compact Crawler was darting around the district. The extendable boom and non-marking tracks meant that Watkins could quickly and efficiently address maintenance challenges that had bothered him for years.
