Ebooms Hero 700

Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack division has announced the launch of a new range of battery powered electric rough terrain articulated booms. Available with 51-ft. (15.7-m) and 66-ft. (20.1-m) working heights, Skyjack’s new SJ45 AJE + and SJ60 AJE + models are designed for indoor and outdoor use.

The all-electric axle-based drive offers traction, while high performance AC electric traction and pump motors deliver high torque power and consistent multi-function capability.

Articulating Boom Lift Performance

The new models offer reliable duty cycle performance, capable of supporting more than a typical full day’s use of machine operation. An additional 30 minutes of reserve allows the units to operate in stowed drive for travel to a charging point.

“Our new electric boom range was developed to provide a clean, quiet, sustainable rental solution with no emissions, lower operating costs and increased utilization,” explained Skyjack president Charlie Patterson. “The new range remains simple and reliable, while providing an environmentally friendly and sustainable choice for rental.”

Skyjack’s new SJ45 AJE + and SJ60 AJE + can take on various conditions and tasks on the jobsite, whether it be navigating various rough terrain conditions or lifting the platform. An oscillating steer axle works in conjunction with the drive system to keep all four tires in contact with the ground. The machines deliver up to 45% gradeability.

Articulating Boom Lift Capacity and Operation

With platform capacities up to 454 kg, quiet operation and zero emissions, the SJ45 AJE + and SJ60 AJE + models offer the flexibility to work both inside and out, even in emission restricted areas.

“All Skyjack booms are designed with ease of maintenance and service in mind to maximize uptime and minimize costs. As always, the key components are easily accessible and all wiring is colour coded and numbered for ease of use,” shared Mark Trowman, product development and project manager EAME, Skyjack Europe. “With efficient, maintenance free batteries and no engine maintenance requirements, our new electric booms further promote low cost of ownership and operation.”

The new models use EASYDRIVE, a boom feature utilized by Skyjack to enable straightforward operation. The boom lift drive function operates in accordance with the general orientation of the turret’s counterweight over the chassis, for example if the joystick is forward, the counterweight is facing forwards, to allow the unit to move in the general direction of the joystick’s movement. EASYDRIVE supports use in rental units.
