Application
Articulate the work platform and jib boom 180 degrees on self-propelled aerial lifts.

Business Situation
JLG needed a solution to give their workers better access to tasks, enabling them to get over, under, around and up into obstacles.

Solution
Light, strong and compact, the rotary actuators JLG designed into their aerial work platforms became an integral part of their structure and performed multiple functions — mounting bracket, bearing support, and rotation device — all in enclosed cylindrical package. Helac's L20-4.5 is mounted between the 4 foot jib boom, whereas the L20-15 is mounted between the jib and main boom, increasing their fleets' versatility and efficiency.
