JLG launches straight boom compact crawler AWP
26 Jul 2022
New X22SJP provides more reach, more capacity and faster lifting speed, with 22m working height and 230kg unrestricted platform capacity
JLG has announced a new compact crawler with a straight boom, the X22SJP, which offers a working height of 22m and an unrestricted platform capacity of 230kg.
The access equipment giant sad it exhibited the new model at its JLG New Perspective event in Leicester, UK earlier this year, showing off the X22SJP before making it available to order.
Along with the X22SJP, a lighter option named X22SJL with GVW <3tons is also available to meet regional transportability requirements. Reaching full working height 25% faster than conventional articulated models, there is a significant benefit in operator productivity, said the manufacturer.
Mirco Negri, senior product manager for JLG in EMEAI, said: “The new X22SJP combines best-in-class productivity with unique features, delivering maximum efficiency on job-sites. The width of the machine when stowed is extremely compact (just 88cm), in fact it is 10cm narrower than most of its competitors.
“Another competitive benefit is its working outreach of 12.3m, making it one of the top models of its class. Machine controls are consistent with the other models in the JLG compact crawler range and significant effort has also been invested into the user friendliness of the machine. With one push of a button the machine stows itself from its working position, or it reverses from the ground back up to its previous working position, eliminating the need to use multiple control functions in the platform.”
According to JLG, the X22SJP comes with three propulsion options: diesel, bi-energy and full Lithium with AC drive including a standard integrated battery heating system when working in cold conditions. Other standard features include integrated LED lights and SkyLine technology for operator safety and the variable stabilisation function to allow the X22SJP to be set-up in tighter spaces.
