Skyjack prepares for busy Bauma China
By Euan Youdale07 October 2016
Skyjack has confirmed its product line-up for Bauma China, taking place in Shanghai during November.
The company will show its DC electric scissor SJIII 4740 for the first time in Asia at the exhibition. “Despite being a relatively latecomer in the market, we have managed to seize the opportunities for growth in China over a short period of time,” said Malcolm Early, vice president of marketing at Skyjack. “Exhibiting in Bauma China allows us to stay abreast of the competitive changes in one of our most important markets.”
Platforms from across the Skyjack range will be on display at booth E70 in the outdoor area at the show, held at Shanghai New International Expo Centre, 22-25 November.
Launched earlier this year the SJIII 4740 is the tallest electric scissor lift in Skyjack’s range with a 13.8m working height and a 227kg maximum capacity. Skyjack redesigned the unit’s steering system to offer a turning radius of 0.54m and single location emergency lowering.
Skyjack’s latest articulating boom, the SJ30 ARJE, will be at the show too. It features an 11m working height and maximum weight capacity of 227kg. With an up-and-over clearance of 3.99m, the unit has a width of 1.19m and a weight of 5675kg.
The Skyjack stand will also include the SJ16 vertical mast, SJ63 AJ articulating boom, SJIII 3219 and SJIII 4632 DC electric scissor lifts and SJ8841 RT rough terrain scissor.
“We are expecting to see an increasing number of visitors at Bauma China this year as the exhibition gains more traction in the industry,” said Mr Early. “We hope to further expand our customer base in the Asia region and will continue to manufacture first-class machines to meet our clients’ needs.”
