At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, both Snorkel and Skyjack took things to new heights with the release of their highest-reaching rough-terrain scissor lifts to date for the North American market. 

At the show, Snorkel unveiled the new Snorkel S9070RT-HC, a "mega scissor" lift that is the first in a family of four new ultra-high-capacity large deck construction scissor lifts that will be introduced through the remainder of 2020. The S9070RT-HC features lifting capacities up to 4,000 pounds (1,814 kilograms) and a maximum working height of 76 feet (23.3 metres). With a lift capacity of up to 2,000 pounds (907 kilograms), the S9070RT-HC also comes equipped with dual powered extension decks and a spacious platform area of 29,160 inches squared (18.76 metres squared).

Meanwhile, Skyjack unveiled its highest reaching scissor lift to date, the SJ9263 RT. The last installment of Skyjack's new range of full-size rough-terrain scissor lifts, the SJ9263 RT has a working height of 69 feet (21.03 metres) and increases opportunities for rental companies with its ability to make work at six stories possible.

The new rough-terrain scissor lift is rated for four people and features an increased platform, which spans 23 feet 4 inches (7.12 metres) with the dual extension deck option. It also shares common features with the rest of the full-size range including Skyjack's axle-based four-wheel drive, AXLDRIVE, SMARTORQUE engine, pairing performance with low maintenance and fully accessible service components.

The SJ9263 RT is in its final stage of testing and will be in full production at Skyjack's Guelph, ON, facility starting in the second quarter of 2020.
