Skyjack Articulating Boom Lifts
What Is an Articulating Boom Lift?
The articulated boom lift is a heavy duty machine capable of performing a wide variety of jobs from construction applications to electrical repair. These highly maneuverable lifts make working at heights a lot safer and efficient.
Knuckle boom lifts are a different term used for articulating boom lifts. These machines are capable of reaching heights from 36 feet to 131 feet, depending on the model of the specific lift.
The articulating boom has a huge arm or boom with many bending elbows. These are in conjunction with extendable arms that enable the articulating lifts to reach outwards and over objects and also upwards.
Telescoping vs. Articulating
Both straight or telescoping boom lifts can work at heights from 46 to 86 feet. Not like articulating lifts, these ones do not contain elbows and extend in a straight line. This simplifies some of the lift training but also restricts the areas that are able to be reached with it.
The articulating boom lift design makes them the most able to negotiate around obstacles and objects. These lifts are offered in electrical models, have zero tail swing and are convenient for indoor use. These specific kinds of lifts are perfect for crowded work situations.
The A-Series Articulating Boom engineered by Skyjack was designed for using many of their dependable and effective design features. The SJ 46AJ provides an industry leading, 360 degree continuous turret rotation that is standard equipped. Thanks to the turret design allowing for easy operation in tight areas, this particular model also offers zero tail swing.
Skyjack is popular for its positive traction for extreme terrains. Many of their machines offer axle based 4WD. These machinery are known for having a reliable and rugged drive train and proven low maintenance. In addition, the AJ has been designed with a rear axle hydraulic differential lock and unlock switch. This enables the operator to lock the rear differential when traveling on rough ground.
