New Telescopic Booms from Skyjack

Skyjack debuted the largest telescopic booms in its current range at The American Rental Show last week. The SJ86 T and SJ82 T expand Skyjack’s telescopic boom range and have competitive working heights and horizontal reach with high capacity zones, the company announced.

The SJ82 T telescopic boom without jib features a working height of 88 ft and horizontal outreach of 72 ft 6 in. The SJ86 T telescopic boom with jib features a working height of 92 ft and horizontal outreach of 76 ft 10 in. The jib has a range of motion from +65 degrees to -60 degree and features designs that improve its strength.

Both models feature a 36 in by 96 in platform and have an unrestricted platform capacity of 500 lbs. Restricted platform capacity on the SJ82 T is 1000 lbs, while on the SJ86 T it is 750 lbs. The default on both models is restricted capacity.

Lights on the control boxes on the base and platform indicate which zone operator can be in. Once the platform reaches the restricted area, the amber light flashes to notify the operator they have reached the limit of the restricted area. The operator then must switch the toggle to the restricted capacity before moving into that zone.

The new telescopic booms are designed to offer low life-cycle costs and great return on investment by using shared components with other Skyjack models.
