New LGMG electric booms in production
By Euan Youdale17 February 2023
LGMG’s new pair of articulating electric boom lifts, launched at Bauma, have now gone into serial production.
The A09JE and A13JE-Li, the latter offering direct electric drive, powered by a lithium-ion battery, made their debut at last year’s exhibition in Munich.
With a narrow tail swing and compact design, the models easily access tight and narrow spaces. The jib can move vertically and swing ±90° horizontally, and provides a wider working envelope to previous models.
The machines’ proportional control complements the dual joystick controller, which allows smooth and precise positioning, while lifting and driving are powered by maintenance-free AC motors.
The A09JE (A30JE in North America) has a platform height of 9m (29ft 6in), a maximum working height of 11m (36ft) and a platform capacity of 230kg (510 lbs). The overall width is 1.19m (3ft 11in). The 1.19m (3ft 11in) ultra-compact chassis means it fits through standard doorways and can operate more flexibly.
Featuring electric drive, low noise and zero emissions, the lithium-battery powered A13JE-Li (A42JE-Li) also has a compact size makes it convenient for construction tasks in narrow and hard to access places.
