JLG Industries remote boom control

May. 02, 2021

A remote boom control option from JLG Industries, McConnellsburg, Pa., is available for the company’s 1644, 1732 and 1075 telehandlers. The feature enables operators to control the boom from outside the cab, providing improved visibility during load placement. On JLG telehandlers with the remote boom control feature, operators are able to wirelessly operate engine startup, boom raise/lower, boom extend/retract, fork tilt up/down and auxiliary hydraulics. When operating the remote boom control from the fork-mounted work platform, a platform docking station is required. The docking station provides a stable surface to magnetically mount the remote-control box.
