Riwal, one of the world’s largest aerial work platform rental companies has purchased the first 1500AJP, the world’s tallest articulating boomlift from JLG Industries at the Bauma trade fair in Munich, Germany.

“As a leading aerial work platform rental and sales specialist, we strive to deliver the best customer experience in the industry,” said Norty Turner, Riwal CEO. “With this investment in the first 1500AJP we continue to offer an innovative and even broader equipment range. “The investment supports our drive to provide our customers with the most advanced solutions available.”

The new 1500AJP articulating boom lift features a category-leading work envelope of more than 74,000 cubic meters of reachable space, a working outreach of 23.5 meters, and a platform capacity of 270 kilograms unrestricted and 450 kilograms restricted, allowing operators to reach more work space and take more materials with them than any other articulating boom lift. The lift also leads the industry in lift speeds, JLG said — 2 minutes 15 seconds to move from the ground to maximum platform height — allowing operators to spend more time working and less time positioning the machine.

“We wish to congratulate Riwal on its purchase of this one-of-a-kind and industry-leading boomlift, which represents JLG’s long history of innovation in machine design and manufacturing,” said Frank Nerenhausen, president of JLG Industries.

The machine this week inspired interest from rental companies from the United States and around the world.

Riwal, based in Dordrecht, The Netherlands, has operations in 16 countries and is one of the world’s largest aerial rental specialists.
