Skyjack’s SJ9263 RT Bridges the Gap Between Niche Market and Core Classes
Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack division unveiled its highest reaching scissor lift to date – the SJ9263 RT. The SJ9263 RT, has a working height of 21 m and increases opportunities for rental companies with its ability to make work at 6 stories possible.
“Similar to the approach we took with our DC scissor lifts, we looked at what changes were mandated by standards, both ANSI in North America and Stage V in Europe, and dug a bit deeper to see how we could develop a whole new class for our customers,” explains Corey Connolly, product manager at Skyjack. “Bringing a machine to the market with a working height of this height expands rental opportunities for our customers without them having to jump to a specialized class.”
The new rough terrain scissor lift is rated for 4 people and boasts an impressive platform, which spans 7.12 m with the dual extension deck option. It also shares common features with the rest of the full-size range including Skyjack’s axle-based 4-wheel drive, AXLDRIVE™, SMARTORQUE™ engine, pairing peak performance with low maintenance, and fully accessible service components.
With it being a brand new class for the Canadian scissor lift manufacturer, Skyjack’s team ensured it took the time needed for additional testing and redesign prior to launch.
“We wanted to ensure this machine matches the rest of our product line in the sense that when it comes to market, it is a simple and reliable product,” continued Mr. Connolly. “The market was stuck between what’s always been offered, and niche products that come with higher acquisition costs, so we wanted to keep the design simple and at a price point that makes sense for our customers.”
The SJ9263 RT is in its final stage of testing and will be in full production at Skyjack’s Guelph, Ontario, facility starting Q2 2020.
