The company is entering into a new class with this lift, moving to become a full-line supplier of all types of aerial work platforms, explains Malcolm Early, vice president of marketing at Skyjack. 

Skyjack is also launching an articulating boom at The Rental Show – the SJ30 ARJE, which features a working height of 36 ft and maximum weight capacity of 500 lbs. The SJ30 ARJE remains competitive against other models already in its class while offering customers the commonality of parts advantage. Skyjack’s trademark numbered-and colour-coded wiring system, along with its easy-to-use, easy-to-maintain design makes the SJ30 ARJE stand out from the crowd.

New rental specification telehandlers
With the SJ1056 TH, Skyjack has redefined what a 10,000-lb class machine is capable of by leveraging the strength and simplicity of the new TH series design. Current telehandlers in the 10,000-lb to 12,000-lb range typically lift their 10,000-lb load to a maximum height of about 33 ft with outriggers deployed.

“With Skyjack’s SJ1056 TH, the telehandler has the ability to take the same 10,000-lb load to 44 ft – providing increased productivity and versatility over even most 12,000-lb units,” said Barry Greenway, product manager at Skyjack.

The SJ1056 TH telehandlers features maximum lift height of 56 ft 3 in., maximum forward reach of 42 ft 6 in., ground clearance of 19 in. It comes with 74hp Deutz engines as standard and 107hp Deutz engines as an option.
