Skyjack's new 63-foot rough terrain SJ 63AJ is now in production - and on schedule. The unit was introduced as a prototype at the 2012 Rental Show in New Orleans. Production units will be on display at this year's Rental Show in Las Vegas (Feb. 10-13 at the Sands Expo and Convention Center).

The SJ 63AJ has a platform height of 63 feet, 7 inches and an up-and-over clearance of 27 feet, 2 inches. The unit also features 40 feet of horizontal reach.

"Key to the design of the 63 AJ was a base weight of 21,200 pounds, allowing two machines to be shipped on a standard 53-foot flatbed, even with some of the typical options ordered, such as foam-filled tires and welder-ready packages," the company said.

The new boom can be powered by either a dual fuel or diesel engine and shares common powertrain, hydraulic and electrical components. It has a Dana axle and 4-wheel drive.
