These kinds of equipment offer dual rated capacities of 1000 pounds and 500 pounds as well. Along with a 60 foot platform height, these units would provide you with the reach capacity and the strength you require no matter what work needs to be completed.

Raising Safety Standards for Aircraft Maintenance
Ideal for working on any size of aircraft, the Model 740AJ provides 22.6 m or 74 feet of height and over 15 m or 51 feet of outreach. It includes many safety features which you need when performing maintenance. The Fall Arrest platform can be added in order to enable you to exit the platform and move an entire 270 degrees around the platform within a radius of 6 feet, and still have fall protection whilst doing so.
The Soft Touch System is a different feature option that would help to lessen any damage to the equipment or risk of any accidental contact in aircraft maintenance. This optional package offers a suspended padded rail that surrounds the platform basket. There are proximity sensors which de-activate platform movement functions and if the basket comes too close to the aircraft surface, the driver is alerted.
The articulating jib will allow the operator better access and positioning to all external surfaces on any aircraft. This specific jib could be used in both controlled and uncontrolled areas thanks to steady winds, 90 mph gusts and jet blast standards of 80 mph. An optional on-board air compressor enables for pneumatic-powered hand tools to be utilized. The Fall Arrest adds safety when performing maintenance outside of the platform.
JLG has made a lot of of these feature options in order to make the operator as safe as possible and to increase overall effectiveness of the equipment.
