Skyjack Articulating Boom Lifts
What Is an Articulating Boom Lift?
The articulated boom lift is a heavy duty machinery capable of performing various tasks from construction applications to electrical repair. These highly maneuverable lifts make working at heights a lot efficient and safer.
Articulating booms are also called knuckle boom lifts. These machinery are capable of reaching heights from 36 feet to 131 feet, depending on the model of the specific lift.
Articulating boom lifts are designed with many bending elbows. These are in conjunction with extendable arms that allow the articulating lifts to reach outwards and over objects and also upwards.
Articulating vs. Telescoping
Both straight or telescoping boom lifts can work at heights from 46 to 86 feet. Unlike articulating lifts, these ones do not have 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 objects and obstacles. These lifts are offered in electrical models, have zero tail swing and are convenient for indoor application. These specific types of lifts are perfect for crowded work situations.
The A-Series Articulating Boom engineered by Skyjack was designed for using many of their reliable and efficient 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 spaces, this particular model also offers zero tail swing.
Skyjack is known for offering extreme terrain ability and positive traction. These features are provided by the axle based 4WD, which is offered in many of Skyjack's product designs. These equipment are known for having a dependable and rugged drive train and proven low maintenance. Moreover, the AJ has been designed with a rear axle hydraulic differential unlock and lock switch. This enables the operator to lock the rear differential when traveling on rough ground.
