Scottish Open Boom Lift

JLG 1850 SJ at the 2018 Scottish Open

Scottish Open TV coverage showcases JLG telescopic boom lift 

A TV camera crew has used a JLG 1850 SJ telescopic boom lift to keep up with the action as the world’s best golfers played at the Scottish Open.

The world’s tallest self-propelled boom – with a working height of 58.56 metres – allowed the camera operators to capture perfect aerial shots at the Gullane Golf Club, in East Lothian.

Large booms in the Riwal UK powered access hire fleet are regularly used by outside broadcasters and event promoters who need stable and safe platforms for both cameras and lighting rigs.

Entertainment industry requires stability and precision

Riwal UK National Sales Manager Terry Lindsey said: “Because of its height and reach, the JLG 1850 SJ ultra-boom gives camera crews the ability to film incredible aerial shots, with complete control.

 “The boom is extremely stable, allowing crews to film with precision and work in comfort with safety. Its large platform and 454kg carrying capacity carries all the camera equipment and personnel needed, and still has space to to ensure TV crews get the best camera angle every time.”

The JLG 1850 SJ – safe, stable and very, very high

Despite its size, the diesel-powered JLG 1850 SJ boom is quick to set up. Its axles take approximately 60 seconds to extend into lifting position, by pivoting rather than telescoping. The five-section fast-lift boom gets operatives to work sites quickly.

An articulating jib supports precise positioning and contributes to the boom’s maximum outreach of 25.03m, plus its ability to reach up and over obstacles. It has four-wheel-drive and gradeability of 40 percent.

As well as being ideal for outside broadcasts, the JLG 1850 SJ boom is perfectly-suited for a range of other tasks, including construction, building maintenance, and structural inspection.
