Skyjack to Reveal New Machines and Innovations
Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack Division is showing machines from its full line of equipment at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014, the show will take place in Las Vegas from March 4 - 8, 2014. Among the product highlights from the company will be a new electric rough-terrain scissor lift plus the VR1056 and ZB2044 telehandlers fitted with Tier 4 interim (T4i) engines. In addition, Tier 4 final (T4f) telescopic booms will be on display as well.
Brad Boehler, president of Skyjack, said the company’s booth was designed to highlight the breadth of Skyjack’s product lines, while the machines themselves emphasized the focus on simplicity and reliability.
“As our product line grows, we want to use trade shows like CONEXPO to demonstrate the wider offering we’re able to support our customers with. Of course we’re showing some of our trademark scissor lifts, and then we’ve got some interesting machines from our articulating and straight boom lines, plus the vertical lifts and our popular telehandlers. Our focus remains on making the most reliable products that are the simplest to operate and maintain.
We’re also highlighting our refurbishment services that offer even longer working lives to Skyjack products, plus showcasing some stories of decades-old Skyjack scissor lifts that we discovered during our Quest 2013 contest last year.”
In product terms, one of the highlights for Skyjack at CONEXPO will be the new SJ6832 RTE electric rough-terrain scissor lift. The machine allows users to easily switch between indoor and outdoor use while its emission-free operation makes it well-suited to projects, regions or countries where machinery pollution restrictions are in place. To simplify operator and service training, the SJ6832 RTE was built on the same chassis as the existing diesel and dual fuel SJ6832 RT units. This decision allows those already familiar with the highly popular traditionally-powered SJ6832 RT lifts to experience a seamless transition to the electrically-powered unit.
From the telehandler line, taking center stage is the new T4i compliant ZB2044, which has a maximum capacity of 9,072 kg and a three-section boom, giving a maximum lift height of 13.67 m. This is joined by the VR1056 telehandler, also now T4i compliant, which has a maximum payload of 4,540 kg and a maximum lift height of 17.14 m. The telescopic booms the company is showing include the SJ45T, that has a capacity of 227 kg and a platform height of 13.8 m; and the SJ66T, that has a platform height of 20.1 m and boasts the tightest turning radius in the industry. Both these telescopic boom lifts will be T4f complaint and feature Skyjack’s exclusive axle-based 4WD system for superior performance on rough terrain.
Additional Skyjack products include the SJ46 AJ and SJ63 AJ articulating booms which offer a platform height of 14.1 m and of 19.38 m, respectively. Both machines are equipped with an axle-based 4WD for superior traction and a rear-axle hydraulic differential lock/unlock switch, allowing the operator to lock the rear differential on rough terrain or unlock it to make tight turns without leaving tire marks on tarmac or concrete surfaces.
Both the SJ 12 and SJ 16 vertical mast lifts will be on display showing their lightweight design that provides low ground pressure and floor loading, a zero-degree inside turning radius and a traversing platform for added reach.
With such a wide array of products on show, visitors will have lots to see at the Skyjack booth and one item in particular is sure to catch the eye. A reconditioned SJ7127 RT rough terrain scissor lift originally built in 2005 will be split 50/50 showing original versus reconditioned state, providing visitors a vivid example of how Skyjack’s rebuilding program can breathe new life into older machines. Skyjack’s extensive reconditioning program for older machines includes expert inspection of all welds, a new paint and decal package, and replacement of all assorted filters, belts, pins, bushings and other engine parts to assure that each machine is restored to original OEM standards before it is returned with a reconditioned warranty. Skyjack will also proudly share and exhibit its new Apple and Android-based “App” that allows customers to choose the right Skyjack product for their particular application, together will full specification and product feature information.
