Far from being a newcomer in the marketplace yet younger than most, Skyjack began manufacturing aerial work platforms in 1986 and has since captured more than 30% of the market share. It’s not difficult to see why. They specialize in a variety of scissor lifts that are designed to accommodate an extensive range of work conditions and heights.

Among the features that have propelled them to their current standing are robust weight capacities, roll-out extension decks, an axle-based 4WD system with rear differential, and machines that are drivable at full heights.

Vertical mast lifts

The primary benefit of a vertical mast lift is its compact footprint and heightened range of maneuverability. Skyjack’s vertical mast lifts are self-propelled, and also feature a high-degree steer angle that provides the operator with functionality and flexibility through a zero inside turning radius. This ability enables easy navigation even in tight aisles and corners. Plus, the slide away platform allows instant access to components in either the raised or stowed position.

Current models include:

DC electric scissors

With few maintenance requirements, Skyjack’s electric scissor models are designed to be easy to service and even easier to use. Compact and maneuverable, their design features a front wheel hydraulic drive and 90° steering, allowing them to slide around even the tightest corners. Also built for ramps and other uneven work surfaces, some models accommodate up to 30% gradeability allowing them to operate effectively within almost any on-slab environment. They also feature one of the industry’s more durable weight capacities for electric models, ranging between 600 and 900 lbs., depending on the lift selected.

Current models include:

  • SJIII 3219
  • SJIII 3220

Rough terrain scissors

Though Skyjack scissors could probably tackle just about any work surface imaginable, the rough terrain models aren’t just for challenging locations. Their unique design and productivity-centric features enable them to provide a high degree of efficiency and cost-effectiveness to operators in any environment. Many include a roll-out extension deck of 4.5’ to 5’ that enables the operator to reach items on ledges, shelves, or warehouse racks. Depending on the machine selected, rough terrain models also include 4-wheel drive and are drivable at full height – with the deck fully extended.
