Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack Division is showing machines from its full line of equipment at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2014 in Las Vegas from March 4 through 8. The Skyjack booth will be located in the Gold Lot, Stand 1837. 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 IV Interim engines. In addition, Tier IV Final telescopic booms will be on display as well.

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 makeSJ6832s 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 Tier IV Interim compliant ZB2044, which has a maximum capacity of 20,000 Ibs (9,072 kg) and a three-section boom, giving a maximum lift height of 44 ft (13.67 m). This is joined by the VR1056 telehandler, also now Tier IV Interim compliant, which has a maximum payload of 10,000 lbs (4,540 kg) and a maximum lift height of 56 ft (17.14 m). The telescopic booms the company is showing include the SJ45T, that has a capacity of 500 lbs (227 kg) and a platform height of 45 ft (13.8 m); and the SJ66T, that has a platform height of 66 ft (20.1 m) and boasts the tightest turning radius in the industry. Both these telescopic boom lifts will be Tier IV Final 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 46 ft (14.1 m) and of 63 ft (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.

Rounding out the company’s product line-up are the DC electric scissor lifts SJIII3219, SJIII 4626 and SJIII 4632, each of which are electrically powered, quiet with zero emissions and able to work in the tightest of spaces which has helped make these the world’s top-selling aerial work platforms.

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.
