Skyjack to Display Tier 4 Interim Telehandlers at ConExpo | Industry News

Linamar Corp.'s Skyjack Division will have on display at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014 its full line of equipment including its new electric rough-terrain scissor lift, VR1056 and ZB2044 telehandlers fitted with Tier 4 Interim engines, and Tier 4 Final telescopic booms.

Brad Boehler, president of Skyjack, said, “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.”

Skyjack's new SJ6832 RTE electric rough-terrain scissor lift 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 thetraditionally-powered SJ6832 RT lifts to experience a seamless transition to the electrically powered unit.

The new Tier 4 Interim compliant ZB2044 telehandler, which has a maximum capacity of 20,000 Ibs and a three-section boom, giving a maximum lift height of 44 ft. will be on display with  the VR1056 telehandler, which also now is Tier 4 Interim compliant and has a maximum payload of 10,000 lbs. and a maximum lift height of 56 ft.

The telescopic booms that will be on exhibit include the SJ45T that has a capacity of 500 lbs. and a platform height of 45 ft.; and the SJ66T, that has a platform height of 66 ft. and boasts the tightest turning radius in the industry. Both these telescopic boom lifts will be Tier 4 Final compliant and feature Skyjack’s axle-based 4WD system.

Other Skyjack products that will be at the company's booth include the SJ46 AJ and SJ63 AJ articulating booms, the SJ 12 and SJ 16 vertical mast lifts, and the DC electric scissor lifts SJIII3219, SJIII 4626, and SJIII 4632. Additionally, 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.
