JLG introduces new Quad Tracks for 600S and 660SJ boom lifts

01 Feb 2022

JLG Industries is offering new Quad Tracks for its 600S and 660SJ boom lifts. JLG Quad Tracks are made up of four triangular rubber track systems, measuring 34 inches high by 54 inches long by 18 inches wide each.

The tracks attach directly to the boom lift's standard wheel hubs, allowing for greater machine utilisation and versatility when working on various surfaces such as grass, sand, mud, gravel, paved streets with curbs, potholes and sharp transitions.

Randi McClure, marketing manager for JLG boom lifts said that when choosing a boom lift for the job, there are several factors to consider.

This can make deciding between tyres and tracks difficult at times. When this happens, Quad Tracks offers an alternative: the ability to convert a standard, wheeled JLG boom lift into a powerful, tracked machine. This enables operators to cover a wide range of applications across multiple job sites with a single machine, and fleet managers to switch between continuous tracks and traditional wheels as needed.

JLG said that the low-profile design of the Quad Tracks reduces the impact on ride height, track width, and maximum drive speed.

These features provide flotation, minimal rutting on job sites, improved traction, greater comfort over obstacles, and no break over effect to the machine operator. They can be replaced with regular tyres or used on other compatible models. When properly loaded and tied down for transport, Quad Tracks do not require additional wide-load transport accommodations.

Compatibility with additional models will be available in the future. It is currently available on new 600S and 660J machine orders, as well as select two-wheel steer models.
