At Jerr-Dan, our rotator structural engineers live by one credo: the strength and stability of the equipment is critical to performance. When you’re looking for quality and performance in a rotator, look no further than the JD50/60 HDR1000. 

The Jerr-Dan JD50/60 HDR1000 Rotator is in a league of its own. The strength and stability built into every rotator comes from its industry leading scissor style outriggers and unique torsion frame design. This incredibly stable platform allows an operator to maximize the working area and capabilities of the boom with its best in class 41 feet of reach. 

The JD50/60 HDR1000 360-degree load charts document the full working range including over the nose of the chassis which means a more comprehensive working area to complete the most challenging recoveries. Each rotator comes with operational load charts to reference before confidently setting up for each recovery. 

When seeking stability, Jerr-Dan’s Scissor Style Outriggers, coupled with its unique torsion frame, lead the industry in its class for performance, strength, and durability. A stable platform along with a full 360-degree load chart makes this rotator stand out in a class of its own.

The Jerr-Dan Rotator also has a proven independent, knee boom underlift that is offered in a variety of configurations to meet customer demands with or without a drag winch. Underlift options include the 530 – 53,000 lb. three stage with 147 inches of reach – and the 565 – 56,500 lb. three/four stage with 181/179 inches of reach respectively.

The JD50/60 HDR1000 comes with two DP or Ramsey 50,000 lb. 2-speed boom winches. Jerr-Dan also offers 20,000 lb., 35,000 lb. or 50,000 lb. drag winch options as well as the 20,000 lb. boom mounted, auxiliary winch option. 

Available in Single Steer or Twin Steer and four or five axle configurations, our chassis are engineered to perform with our rotator. Each chassis is custom ordered to meet Jerr-Dan’s demanding specifications so our rotator will provide the highest performance and durability for our customers.

The Jerr-Dan rotator utilizes a unique 10 million RBM rated torsion frame design which is the key to its performance. By properly distributing the forces encountered during lifting operations, the truck and its components remain stable and solid from start to finish.

Found in the truck’s cab, as well as at each control station, the Jerr-Dan exclusive Touchlink ™ system provides increased lighting control functionality with greater ease of use. This system features in-cab electronic controls that come standard with an overhead switch panel as well as an additional underlift control panel as an option. Available on all Jerr-Dan 50/60 HDR1000 rotators, Touchlink increases operator functionality and safety by allowing control of the light-bar, front, side and rear strobes, and flood and work lights without ever having to leave the cab. This CAN-Bus based system reduces complexity and the need for additional wiring.

Along with the rest of the rotator body, created with the operator in mind, the Touchlink system has built-in troubleshooting with smart keypad indicator lights. Our centrally located, self-enclosed power distribution panel provides ease of access and serviceability to all electrical fuses and relays and protection from the elements or accidental damage. The Touchlink control system includes a protected and secured automotive style wire harness, CAN-bus datalink, and our weatherproof smart keypads. Additionally, it is pre-wired with three auxiliary circuits for ease of expandability for those who wish to add custom lighting options.  

Each rotator comes with a fully proportional Scanreco remote. The remote comes with several features including E-stop emergency shut down, engine throttle up to a preset RPM, winch 2 speed on/off switches and winch free spool engage. The remote can be operated in a standard mode or set to a slower mode depending on your needs. Lighted indicators tell you when a winch is in free spool mode, and also indicate when a winch is in high-speed mode. The remote also has a safety feature that senses when it may have been dropped, shutting the remote off automatically.

Options include multiple storage solution packages, which allow you to customize the body to fit your storage requirements. Also check out our many available stainless and chrome accessory options to make your JD50/60 HDR1000 really stand out in a crowd.
