Skyjack to unveil new boom at The Rental Show 2015
By Lindsey Anderson13 January 2015
Skyjack is unveiling the SJ86 T telescopic boom at The Rental Show, Feb. 23-25 in New Orleans. The company will also showcase its full line of AWPs.
“The SJ86 T is the latest in a line of boom products Skyjack has brought to market in recent years,” said Malcolm Early, Skyjack’s vice president of marketing. “While it is far from the last boom lift we will introduce, it represents a milestone as a much asked for addition by our customers.”
The new SJ86 T helps meet increasing customer demand in the rental industry with its higher capacity and greater reach. Two models will be available in North America: a telescopic-only model with a platform height of 82 feet and a model with a jib, featuring a platform height of 86 feet. Full details on the SJ86 T will be released at The Rental Show.
In addition to the new telescopic boom, Skyjack will be showcasing the SJ63 AJ articulating boom, which features a unique open-center knuckle riser design for improved visibility.
From its vertical mast lift line, Skyjack will be showcasing the SJ 12 and SJ 16. Their lightweight design provides low ground pressure and floor loading, a zero-degree inside turning radius and a traversing platform for added reach.
Three DC electric scissor lifts, SJIII 3219, SJIII 3226 and SJIII 4632, will be displayed at the stand. The electric scissor lifts are quiet with zero emissions and able to work in the tightest of spaces, helping to make these the world’s top-selling aerial work platforms.
From the rough-terrain scissor lift line, Skyjack will showcase SJ6832 RTE and SJ9250 RT. The SJ 6832 RTE electric rough-terrain scissor lift is the only machine in its category with 45 percent gradeability and four-wheel drive as standard. The RTE provides end users with a zero-emission scissor lift that comes with the low running costs and high uptime customers expect from Skyjack’s “simply reliable” AWP design philosophy. The SJ9250 RT, full-size rough terrain scissor lift, offers high work heights and heavy duty capacities.
