Bil–Jax is entering the self–propelled boom sector with this 43.5 ft (13 m) working height, 500 lb (225 kg) payload SLT–3632T, the first of what will be a six–model series called the ‘X–Boom’.

The Archbold, Ohio–based company said it has “combined the transport advantages of trailer–mounts [including trailered GVWs of less than 7000 lb (3180 kg)] with the job site maneuverability of traditional self–propelled booms” and, it said, at a much lower price. The European–style machine – Niftylift, Kesla (now Nostolift) and Dino Lift are among producers of similar models – features 32 ft (9.8 m) maximum outreach, a 3.5 mph (5.6 kph) top speed, 4WD, oscillating axles, a grade capability of 45º, and auto–levelling up to 12.5º. The model is undergoing field trials and will debut at the World of Concrete exhibition in Las Vegas in January (it won't be at the ARA Rental Show), with availability in late Spring or early Summer.
