Although the hapless Chicago Cubs still won’t win a World Series this year, historic Wrigley Field has a freshly painted marquee with help from Skyjack lifts.

Skyjack Machines Used in Painting Marquee at Historic Wrigley Field

Three aerial work platforms manufactured by Skyjack were used by painters to re-paint the marquee at Chicago’s legendary Wrigley Field, the second oldest active major league ballpark. The marquee was painted green and gold to celebrate its 100-year anniversary. The colors replicated the original look of the marquee.

Painters used the SJ 6832RT and SJ66T machines. The 6832, a rough-terrain scissorlift, has a raised platform height of 32 feet, corresponding to a working height of 38 feet. With a 56-inch by 96-inch platform, a 60-inch turning radius and 40-percent gradeability the painters could maneuver the unit on the busy intersection of Clark and Addison. The SJ6832RT is drivable at full height with the roll-out deck extended.

The SJ66T telescopic boom has a working height of 72 feet, a horizontal reach of 57 feet and weight capacity of 27,300 pounds.
