Skyjack has been operating for more than 30 years. Its first aerial products were scissor lifts and the company quickly became, and remains, the world leader in design of and the home of the self-propelled scissor lifts.
Today, Skyjack makes one in three scissor lifts that are sold globally. Following the success in scissor lifts, Skyjack used that simple and reliable approach and applied it to a range of telescopic and articulating booms.
With the introduction of the SJ85 AJ, Skyjack offers not only a full line of boom lifts covering all core classes, but also a range of boom lifts with unique features that improve a rental company’s productivity.
Skyjack then turned its attention to the North American telehandler market. In recent years, it launched the TH series, a range of true rental telehandlers that has been well received.
The North American TH series has lift capacities from 5,500 to 12,000 pounds and lift heights from 19 to 56 feet.
With changes coming due to the impending ANSI 92.20 design standards, Skyjack took the opportunity to see how it could pair compliance while keeping its products efficient, simple and reliable.
The most notable changes include active load sensing systems, wind force requirements, railings and platform entries, and familiarization and training. The company has published a white paper that highlights the changes and explains what rental companies can expect from Skyjack. They can be found at www.skyjack.com/news/ansi.
Overall, market demand has remained steady over the past few years and Skyjack has experienced growth in terms of sales and market share overall, but especially with its telehandler lineup.
Launched in 2015, Skyjack’s TH series exceeded the company’s annual projections within the first three months. It now has product offerings in all core classes for its scissor lifts, booms and telehandlers.
This year, Skyjack added to its TH series with the launch its first compact telehandler, the SJ519 TH, which gives the company the opportunity to compete in a whole new equipment class.
Also this year, Skyjack made waves in the internet of things realm with ELEVATE, its new telematics solution. It is a mobile-first interface specifically designed for off-highway rental fleets.
ELEVATE enables customers to remotely monitor and manage machines. They can spot service requirements in advance, provide end users with remote troubleshooting, battery pack management and verify the machine’s location.
ELEVATE differentiates itself from other telematics products for off-highway fleets because it’s the first product with a pricing structure worth its weight. It provides mission critical data from every machine category, from the smallest electric scissor lift to the largest telehandler.
This solution is very flexible. ELEVATE can be ordered with new Skyjack equipment, which comes fitted directly from the company’s factory. It can also be ordered as an aftermarket solution and retrofitted to integrate with existing Skyjack equipment and with other off-highway fleet equipment through the company’s partnership with Trackunit.
