Skyjack rough terrain scissor

Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack division launched a new industry-leading, electrically-powered rough terrain scissor lift.

The only machine in its category with four-wheel-drive and 45 percent gradeability as standard, the SJ6832 RTE provides end users with a zero emission scissor lift built with low running costs and high up time.

To simplify operator and service training, the SJ6832 RTE was built on the same chassis as the existing diesel and dual fuel 68RT units. This allows those already familiar with the highly popular traditionally-powered 68RT lifts to experience a seamless transition to the RTE. Maintenance costs and time are also reduced with the RTE due to the elimination of servicing air filters, fuel filters, oil filters, oil changes, belts and coolants. Almost all non power-plant related parts are common with the internal combustion 6832RTs.

The standard Skyjack color-coded and numbered wiring system, along with full access to all serviceable components and a tilt-out hydraulic manifold adds to the ease of user maintenance for the SJ6832 RTE. The RTE is also equipped with optional auto-leveling outriggers to allow elevating on uneven grades and can be fitted with a range-extending external generator to recharge the batteries in the field.

The range-extending gasoline powered genset option adds versatility to the SJ6832 RTE, allowing it to be reliably used at green field construction sites with no AC power, or when multiple shifts do not allow sufficient downtime to complete a standard charging cycle. The generator can either be manually controlled from the platform or set to come on automatically at 50 percent battery capacity.
