High capacity boom lift a boon for 5G installers

Home Infrastructure Construction & Civils High capacity boom lift a boon for 5G installers

WORK-at-height and material handling supply company Eazi Access recently added JLG’s 460SJ HC3 Telescopic Boom Lift to its fleet, something it believes will prove a boon for technicians rolling out 5G towers across South Africa.

According to the company, the sole distributor of JLG in South Africa, the high capacity boom lift allows for more flexibility at height with three working zones and an enhanced capacity that allows up to three workers and tools to fit into the platform.

Marcus Green, GM: Rental & Sales Support said this allowed users to do several different jobs at height.

“5G Towers are currently being installed around South Africa which technically means you would need two technicians in a basket, an aerial that would need to be mounted as well as an operator. This model allows for more productivity to be done in less time as it permits up to three occupants and tools to height in every zone.”

He said another feature of the JLG 460SJ HC3 is its ability to enhance safety and eliminate guesswork for equipment operators as all Hi-Capacity models have built in automatic load sensing. This feature keeps the machine within the allowable work envelope by limiting its use when the platform is overloaded.

“At 16 metres high, the 460SJ H3C is our first and smallest of a completely new JLG range that we have to offer at Eazi Access. We look forward to our customers in construction, heavy industries and mining enjoying this convenient and cost-efficient machine,” Green said.
