Skyjack’s latest range of telehandlers feature two unique systems.
First, a rear axle stabilization system, which increases stability and provides jobsite flexibility with three operational modes: normal free pivot, restricted, and locked. Based on a user’s boom angle, the RAS system kicks in automatically allowing the operator to perform fine tuning adjustments to place the load safely at height without having to lower the load to level the frame and then lift again.
Second, using improved gearing and a high-efficiency hydraulics package, Skyjack’s TH Series’ 74 hp engines deliver the same on-site job performance as higher horsepower units. Smart torque is also engineered to require no DPF, no DEF, and NO other active exhaust aftertreatment and thus reduces operating costs.
The latest Skyjack models have increased machine reliability and longevity:
- A new dual-tilt compensation cylinder design improves load distribution and reliability.
- New maintenance-free (greaseless) main bearings.
- A relocated ECU for easier service access.
- A new high-pressure filter system and improved hydraulic tank design – significantly reducing contamination.
- New durable and rental yard repairable steel engine cowling.
- New ergonomic seat with improved weather protection.
When a rental asset is not out on rent it is not contributing to return on investment. Minimal machine downtime keeps units out on rent longer, earning users more money. The TH Series is designed with all major service points easily accessible, limiting downtime and increasing customers’ utilization. With a variety of proprietary features, Skyjack’s TH Series offer the rental industry’s best life cycle value. An example of that approach is represented by an innovative cab design that allows fleet operators to easily convert between open and enclosed cabs with simple hand tools, providing increased flexibility for fleet movement and fast response to customer demands. Bolt-on/off window retention system leads to increased uptime, and minimizes costs incurred when replacing glass.
Skyjack’s range extends from 5,000 pounds to 20,000 pounds capacity and lift heights from 19 to 56 feet. In the case of Skyjack Flex cab, it provides increased flexibility for fleet movement and fast response to customer demands. The Readyhook, yoke-mounted lifting hook is standard on TH Series telehandlers. With capacities that match the maximum lift capability of the telehandler, the hook allows the safe under-slinging of loads and avoids the practice of using the forks as an underslung lifting device. Skyjack’s TH Series telehandlers offer a wide variety of carriages, fork options, and additional attachments designed to increase telehandler productivity.
