JLG to launch electric booms at Bauma 2022

The upgraded second generation versions of JLG’s 45ft and 52ft electric articulated boom lifts will be showcased at the Hinowa stand

JLG will unveil two new electric booms at Hinowa’s stand at Bauma 2022, the company has announced.

It continues a partnership that first formed between the two companies in 2010, under which Hinowa has been producing JLG’s electric boom lift series – the EC Series.

The new, upgraded second generation versions of JLG’s 45ft and 52ft electric articulated boom lifts, the 45ft EC450AJ and 52ft EC520AJ will be showcased at Hinowa’s stand, with JLG having previously announced that it would not have a standalone booth at the fair.

In July 2022, AJI Rentals said it had added eight JLG aerial lifts to its fleet and, later in the month, JLG launched its X22SJP straight boom compact crawler.

The two models use the same base machine with a slightly longer boom on the EC520AJ. As with the first generation JLG 450/520AJs, they use a dual sigma type riser, topped by a two section telescopic boom and jib with 145 degrees of articulation. Power on the new models comes from a 200Ah lithium ion battery pack with a recharge time of 3.5 hours, through the 3kW onboard Zivan battery charger.

A dual 400Ah battery pack is optional, while the travel function is provided by two AC direct wheel electric drive motors, with the option of four wheel drive.

JLG’s General Manager for Europe, Africa and the Middle East, Karel Huijser said: “We are incredibly proud of our long lasting partnership with Hinowa. The launch of the EC Series Gen 2 at Bauma, marks a successful collaboration between our two companies that is based on sharing the same values and an equal passion about product design and development. Whilst not being present at Bauma, we are proud to unveil the EC Series at the Hinowa stand.”

At the end of July, JLG appointed Mirco Negri as a Senior Product Manager.

Hinowa President Davide Fracca concluded, “We’re so pleased to celebrate not only our 35th anniversary this year, but also this meaningful 12.5 year partnership with JLG. We look forward to many more years of success together.”
