Linamar Corporation's Skyjack division changed things up a bit at this year's bauma. The leader in aerial access took the show indoors and brought a taste of Canada with them to their first two-story indoor booth. With their new full-size rough terrain scissor lift at the helm and the first of their redesigned DC electric scissor lifts on stand, there was a lot of traffic to hall C4 to see what Skyjack had to offer.

With a wide variety of attachments for handling materials from pipes to pallets, these machines are primed for work on construction sites, industrial applications, working in the oil and gas and mining industries, and stockpile management.
