Truck-towable aerial lifts set up fast, reach high

Bil-Jax has launched the Summit Series, a new line of boom lifts that can be towed by a half-ton pickup truck and set up in 30 seconds using self-leveling hydraulic outriggers. The Summit Series platforms are big enough for two people, feature 110-volt electrical outlets and hold up to 500 pounds. The first in the series, the 3632T, offers a maximum working height of 43 feet 6 inches. Additional models to be introduced in 2006 will reach heights of 37 feet 2 inches, 45 feet and 55 feet 3 inches.
