JLG Offers New Bi-Energy Option on Popular Compact Crawler Boom Lift Models


JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company a global manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs) and telehandlers, now offers bi-energy technology on its X770AJ and X1000AJ compact crawler boom lifts, reducing these machines’ noise and exhaust emissions. The innovative system equips these JLG® machines with 2 full-sized, independent power sources, combining an emission-free lithium-ion battery pack with a dependable diesel engine to allow operators to work indoors and outdoors with one machine.

“The bi-energy system is designed to maintain the high performance and efficiency our customers expect from the X770AJ and X1000AJ, while minimizing their carbon footprint and decibel levels,” said Angela Patterson, JLG Boom Lift Product Management Specialist. “With this option, operators can choose the best power source for the application (either the engine or the lithium-ion batteries). This dual power source design means that JLG bi-energy models can be used in a wide variety of settings – from general greenfield construction projects to environmentally sensitive jobsites.”
The X770AJ comes with a 100 Ah 76 V lithium-ion battery pack, while the X1000AJ has a 150 Ah 76 V lithium-ion battery pack; the lithium-ion batteries can be charged from an outlet at any time, including while the machine is in use. Both machines also have a Kubota D902 21.6-hp diesel engine.

These models also boast commonality with other JLG compact crawler boom lift models. Both new bi-energy models use the same console box layout as the rest of JLG’s compact crawler boom lift line, simply adding 2 new buttons to switch between the independent power sources.

The new bi-energy option will be available on additional JLG compact crawler boom lifts in the future.
