JCB has used The Rental Show to showcase its new AJ48D articulated boom, the second model the company has officially debuted for the North American market.

The AJ48D features a maximum platform height of 48 feet, 4 inches and maximum platform capacity of 551 pounds. The unit is powered by a 48hp engine. The launch follows JCB’s first articulated introduction back in 2017 when the company used ConExpo to debut the AJ50D, a 50-foot articulating boom with a 500-pound platform capacity. 

JCB also had its all-electric telehandler and a scissor lift on its stand, amongst other products. The company told ALH it was actively taking orders for the AJ48D during The Rental Show. For more information, see the November/December issue of Access, Lift & Handlers.
