APL Take Delivery Of First Tier 5 Engine JLG 450AJ Booms In UK

Here at APL we are at the forefront of innovation and are always striving to be pioneers of the latest technologies. As such, we have just taken delivery of the UK’s very first JLG 450AJ Diesel Boom Lifts featuring Tier 5 engines.


The new level of emissions regulations known as Stage V or Tier 5 came into force on the 1st January 2019 and applies to all diesel engines with an output of 56Kw (75HP).

The Tier 5 engines further reduce emissions dramatically compared to the Tier 4 predecessors and feature Diesel Particulate Filters aimed at eliminating ultra-fine particles of soot in diesel exhaust known as sub-micron level particles.


This most recent investment marks the first of many more to come featuring the new Tier 5 engines.

COVID – 19

Here at APL/APC we are committed to safety and are actively doing our part to reduce the chances of COVID-19 spreading. Whilst we employ a number of these practices anyway, we are taking extra care that all of our staff follow them.

Upon returning to our HQ, each machine is thoroughly cleaned with G101 multi purpose cleaner and extra attention is taken on high risk areas of the machine such as keypads and control boxes using special Biocidal cleaner.

All of our drivers have been given special disinfectant wipes and cleaning supplies to keep their trucks clean and reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

We are also disinfecting our offices daily and have adopted many safeguarding techniques including keeping a 2m distance between any two people at one time.
