By Renée Francoeur
February 29, 2016 – Linamar Corp.’s Skyjack division recently unveiled three new products: the SJIII 4740 DC electric scissor lift, the SJ30 ARJE articulating boom with rotating jib, and the SJ1056 TH telehandler.
The company says the SJIII 4740 is the tallest DC electric scissor it has ever produced, with a maximum working height of 45.3 ft and maximum weight capacity of 500 lb.
The SJ30 ARJE, meanwhile, features a working height of 36 ft and maximum weight capacity of 500 lb.
With the SJ1056 TH, Skyjack says it has redefined what a 10,000-lb class machine is capable of by “leveraging the strength and simplicity” of the new TH series design. Current telehandlers in the 10,000-lb to 12,000-lb range typically lift their 10,000-lb load to a maximum height of about 33 ft with outriggers deployed. The SJ1056 TH telehandler features maximum lift height of 56 ft 3 in., maximum forward reach of 42 ft 6 in., ground clearance of 19 in. It comes with 74hp Deutz engines as standard and 107hp Deutz engines as an option.
