Skyjack to focus on cost of ownership and affordability for future equipment
Company updates DC scissor lifts, launches line of full-size rough-terrain lifts
Skyjack's next generation of equipment will target key cost of ownership items for rental companies. Going beyond ANSI standards, the company has made updates to its DC scissor lifts, launched a line of full-size rough-terrain scissor lifts, and increased capacities on most of its articulating and telescopic booms.
While the timing for ANSI standards is delayed yet again, production facilities in Skyjack's headquarters have already made the switch and are currently manufacturing A92.20 compliant equipment.
Its next generation of equipment includes:
- DC scissor lifts: complete with a new control box, single location emergency lowering switch, adjusted pothole protection, new SKYCODED diagnostic display, and a more rigid scissor stack.
- Full-size rough-terrain scissor lifts: boasting increased working heights, increased capacities, and the market's largest work platform across the range.
- +Booms: increased capacities in all 40-foot and 60-foot models along with dual capacities in most models. In addition to platform capacity rating, personnel rating has also increased.
