LGMG’s new pair of articulating electric boom lifts, launched at Bauma, have now gone into serial production.

The A09JE and A13JE-Li, the latter offering direct electric drive, powered by a lithium-ion battery, made their debut at last year’s exhibition in Munich.

With a narrow tail swing and compact design, the models easily access tight and narrow spaces. The jib can move vertically and swing ±90° horizontally, and provides a wider working envelope to previous models.

The machines’ proportional control complements the dual joystick controller, which allows smooth and precise positioning, while lifting and driving are powered by maintenance-free AC motors. 

The A09JE (A30JE in North America) has a platform height of 9m (29ft 6in), a maximum working height of 11m (36ft) and a platform capacity of 230kg (510 lbs). The overall width is 1.19m (3ft 11in). The 1.19m (3ft 11in) ultra-compact chassis means it fits through standard doorways and can operate more flexibly.


Featuring electric drive, low noise and zero emissions, the lithium-battery powered A13JE-Li (A42JE-Li) also has a compact size makes it convenient for construction tasks in narrow and hard to access places.
