Bil-Jax Adds Options and Accessories to Summit Series
Further expanding its product offerings, Bil-Jax, Archbold, Ohio, introduces a broad selection of options and accessories for its new trailer-mounted aerial lifts, the Summit Series.
Bil-Jax's new pallet fork option, which is scheduled for release this fall, joins the previously introduced material-lift hook option to enhance the Summit Series' material-lifting capabilities. With the pallet fork in place, the Summit Series towable boom lifts are converted to light-duty, trailer-mounted reach forklifts with a 500-pound unrestricted capacity throughout the machine's entire range of motion. All models equipped with the pallet fork or material-lift hook feature a load management system that provides information in either pounds or kilograms on the display panel located at the ground control station.
The hydraulic jib rotator is another option available for the articulating Summit Series models, which currently includes the 3522A, 4527A, and 5533A models. Adding a new dimension of platform-positioning capability for towable boom lifts, the hydraulic jib rotator provides 180 degrees of horizontal jib rotation. According to Bil-Jax, no other North American manufacturers are currently offering this capability on their trailer-mounted boom lift models. Production of the hydraulic jib rotator is scheduled to begin in August.
Lastly, the drive-and-set package is available for all Summit Series models, providing convenient, powered maneuverability on improved surfaces. Operators can drive and set-up the machine without leaving the platform when it is in the stowed position. Maximum drive speed is between 1.25 and 1.5 mph, depending on the model. For example, the 5533A's larger drive system can be driven at 1.5 mph while the smaller drive system on the 3522A can be driven at 1.25 mph. Maximum gradeability for the drive-and-set feature is between 30% and 35%, which also depends on the size of the model.
