JLG introduces Quad Tracks

By Euan Youdale21 January 2022

JLG’s Quad Tracks are currently available on new 600S and 660SJ.

JLG Industries is now offering Quad Tracks for its 600S and 660SJ boom lifts.

The Quad Tracks are made up of four triangular rubber-track systems, each measuring 34in (0.86m) high by 54in (1.37m) long by 18in (0.36m) wide. They bolt directly to the boom lift’s standard wheel hubs, offering increased machine utilisation and flexibility for working on a range of surfaces, including sand, mud, gravel, grass, paved streets with curbs, potholes and sharp transitions

The Quad Track’s design is low-profile and developed to minimise impact on ride height, track width and maximum drive speed. As JLG explains, these features provide the operator with the benefit of excellent floatation, minimal rutting at job sites, improved traction, greater comfort over obstacles and no ‘break over’ effect.

When the work is completed, the Quad Tracks can be swapped out for regular tyres or for use on other applicable models. As an added bonus, Quad Tracks do not require additional wide load transport accommodations for machine shipping when properly loaded and tied down for transport.

“There are many considerations when selecting a boom lift for the work at hand. This can sometimes make it challenging to choose between tires or tracks,” said Randi McClure, marketing manager for JLG boom lifts. “When this happens, Quad Tracks offer an alternative solution: the ability to convert a normal, wheeled JLG boom lift into a highly capable, tracked machine. This allows operators to cover a wide range of applications on multiple job sites with one machine — and offers fleet managers the ability to switch between continuous tracks and traditional wheels as needed.”

As well as for new 600S and 660SJ machine orders, the Quad Tracks are also available for some aftermarket 2-wheel steer models. Compatibility with additional models will be available in the near future.
