Skyjack Building Information Model–compatible (BIM) image and data files will be available to assist architects and engineers with their digital project plans.

"Rental companies work closely with the Architectural, Engineering and Construction (AEC) community and we see value in providing those companies with Skyjack BIM-compatible models so the specification accuracy of their Skyjack fleet in work and maintenance projects is increased," said Malcolm Early, vice president of marketing at Skyjack.

BIM technology digitally constructs an accurate virtual model of a project. This model can be used for planning, design, construction and operation of the facility. These models help architects, engineers and construction companies visualize their project in a simulated environment which, in turn, enables them to identify potential design, construction or operational issues.

Skyjack products currently available as models include:
• SJ12 and SJ16 vertical mast lifts
• SJ3219, SJ3226, and SJ4632 DC scissor lifts
• SJ6832 RT, SJ8831 RT, SJ8841 RT, SJ9241 RT, and SJ9250 RT rough terrain scissor lifts
• SJ46 AJ, SJ51 AJ, SJ63 AJ, AND SJ85 AJ articulating booms
• SJ30 ARJE DC articulating boom

The BIM library will be expanded to include Skyjack telescopic booms in 2018.

Connor Laing, content specialist at bimstore, said, "It's been a pleasure to work alongside Skyjack to develop their BIM offering, and we will continue to create the most sophisticated access system models that are available. We have enjoyed helping Skyjack stay at the forefront of their industry and build high-quality BIM components for specifiers to utilize in their Building Information Models."

Skyjack models can be downloaded from www.bimstore.co.uk, or www.bimstore.us.

Trail King Steerable Dolly Offers Better Maneuverability

Trail King recently updated the design of the steerable dolly with a front steer design. This new design allows for better maneuverability for a greater steering angle, tighter corners and less manual steering.  The dolly offers wireless manual steer and auto alignment after manual steer for an automatic self-centering function. Trail King has increased the hatbox rotation angle on this model with the ability to turn up to 65 degrees. The centralized grease port for turntable allows for easy upkeep and maintenance. This versatile dolly can be used with a Schnabel setup, replace standard wheel area for a steerable 13 axle configuration, or can be used in combination with a Jeep/Dolly for Bunk work.
