JLG Industries, a manufacturer of mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, now offers Quad Tracks for JLG 600S and 660SJ boom lifts. Quad Tracks from JLG are made up of four triangular rubber-track systems, each measuring 34-in. high by 54-in. long by 18-in. wide. They bolt directly to the boom lift’s standard wheel hubs, offering increased machine use and flexibility for working on a range of surfaces, including sand, mud, gravel, grass, paved streets with curbs, potholes, and sharp transitions.

The Quad Track’s design is low-profile and developed to minimize impact on ride height, track width, and maximum drive speed. These features provide the machine operator with the benefit of excellent floatation, minimal rutting at job sites, improved traction, greater comfort over obstacles, and no “break over” effect. When the work is done, the Quad Tracks can be swapped out for regular tires or for use on other applicable models. The Quad Tracks do not require additional wide load transport accommodations for machine shipping when properly loaded and tied down for transport.

The new Quad Tracks from JLG are currently available with new 600S and 660SJ machine orders, as well as through aftermarket on select, 2-wheel steer models. Compatibility with additional models will be available in the near future.
