Skyjack Talks Next Generation at The ARA Show
POSTED January 15, 2020
Linamar Corporation’s (TSX:LNR) Skyjack division has a lot planned for visitors to The ARA Show in Orlando, FL. With new leadership at the helm, the next generation of equipment rolling onto rental yards, and enhanced digital products being unveiled at the show, this OEM promises a focus on productivity and an exciting start to 2020.
“Much of what we’ll cover at The ARA Show’s press conference will inevitably be about the new ANSI standards, our focus is on showing enhancements we’ve made outside of what’s mandated to produce a range that helps rebalance the ROI equation,” explains Ken McDougall, president at Skyjack. “Some paths to ANSI compliance have driven increased cost, so we’ve tried to mitigate that as much as possible. We’re focused on showing how Skyjack has delivered compensating cost of ownership improvements for rental companies.”
“We have been eager to fully roll out the next generation of DC scissor lifts for some time now and so we’re excited to have a fleet of sale-ready next generation equipment on stand at The ARA Show,” Malcolm Early, vice president of marketing at Skyjack, divulges. “We’re bringing an assortment of scissor lifts, both DC and rough terrain, as well as showcasing updates to our booms for the first time at a show.”
Similar to its DC and rough terrain scissor lifts, Skyjack booms have also undergone a transformation for the 2020 market. Skyjack’s 40’ and 60’ booms will now boast increased capacities and feature a dual-module control system integrated with Skyjack’s SKYCODED™ color-coded and numbered wiring system.
“The new SKYCODED™ control system enables our machines to better communicate with our ELEVATE telematics solution,” Early explains. “The enhancements made on our machines directly translate into enhanced data delivered by telematics. In fact some of that data leads to ground breaking digital products and we’ll be announcing exactly what those entail at our February 10th press conference.”
