Higher reach with eco-benefits

Skyjack introduced its all new SJ20 E vertical mast lift earlier this year. With a 20-foot platform height; full AC electric drive; zero inside turning radius; SkyCoded colour and numbered wiring; and an assortment of productivity options including a wind rating for indoor and outdoor use, the SJ20 E offers a compelling ROI for rental companies. The SJ20 E features proportional lift and drive controls and the variable speed electric drive provides exceptional duty cycles. The SJ20 E’s consistent torque provides up to 25 percent gradeability and enables a 350-pound platform capacity. Its compact size is achieved without compromising the work area. Higher height was achieved through a new inverted five-section mast with large overlaps to help increase rigidity, a closed multistage lift cylinder that is free from any chains, sheaves, or bushings reduces maintenance requirements. The SJ20 E includes Skyjack’s new Eco matrix that provides information on environmental sustainability in categories like carbon savings, emissions and duty cycle improvements. The SJ20 E boasts other features including a traversing deck that provides up to 16 inches of up-and-over capability; an easy-access maintenance hatch that provides unrestricted access to all major components including batteries; improved ground clearance for pothole protection without moving components to maintain or potentially snag on cords or debris; and a clean unrestricted view from the front-facing control box. Similar to Skyjack’s Next Generation DC scissor lifts, the new vertical mast also features an onboard diagnostic system. This provides operators or service technicians with real-time faults in plain simple language eliminating the need for plug-in calibration for day-to-day troubleshooting.

Cut concrete indoors

The all-new GreenWorks 82PC12 12-inch brushless power cutter features a precision-aiming LED giving the operator confidence with each and every cut. The cutter comes with an IPX4 rating and uses a 12-inch cut-off saw blade. Customers will appreciate having a real commercial electric stone saw, providing  so much more versatility on where and when they can operate the unit, including indoor or enclosed area use without the harmful exhaust fumes or the stress of having to mix fuels. The 82PC12 features an oversized trigger for use with gloves and a 40-minute constant run time on a four-amp battery.


Longer maintenance intervals

The 337-13HC is powered by a Honda GX390 engine which features an oil shutdown sensor and a cyclone air filter.  The cyclone air filter keeps the air/fuel ratio more constant as the elements become dirty and more than doubles the length of the service interval for air filter maintenance.  It uses direct belt drive and is towable with an optional easy-to-install tow package. All Dosko stump grinders are equipped with a unique side discharge frame which moves cuttings out and away from the machine while grinding to keep the operator’s work area cleaner than with the use of channel frame stump grinders. The 337 Series comes standard with 700 Series Greenteeth. Teeth can be rotated in three, 120-degree increments for a fresh cutting edge in minutes.

The 825TKL mini-track loader features an innovative cab-over design, allowing exceptional access to key components, cutting routine maintenance time and improving a rental store’s bottom line. The articulating rollers on the track system tackles uneven terrain and absorbs impact, providing stability and comfort to the operator.

The TKL experience incorporates an electronic display panel that is clear and easy to understand. Featuring a unique high/medium/low speed selection, the operator can adjust the track drive speed of the TKL to the task at hand, benefiting both seasoned and novice operators. There are a variety of safety features on the TKL, including the operator presence switch that senses when the operator is no longer standing on the ride platform.
