Skyjack’s SJ85 AJ Lifts Miami Company to New Heights
February 2, 2018; Guelph, Ontario – Linamar Corporation’s (TSX:LNR) Skyjack division is helping a Miami rental company reach new heights with their first SJ85 AJ. Miami Tool Rental has been operating in south-eastern Florida for nearly 15 years, and in the past five years they have experienced significant growth due to the influx of commercial high rises going up in the area. In order to meet their customers’ rental demands, Miami Tool Rental knew they needed to supplement their existing fleet with Skyjack’s SJ85 AJ.
With this latest addition, Miami Tool Rental can now provide their customers with a product that has a working height of 91 ft (27.74 m), horizontal outreach of 56 ft (17.07 m), and an up-and-over clearance of 34 ft (10.36 m). “We’ve worked together for so many years and Skyjack was a key part in Miami Tool Rental’s journey when they started renting MEWPs,” said Yuri Millan, branch manager at Miami Tool Rental.
Millan knew their company was looking for something their customers could use on a wide variety of tasks on each job site. The versatility and spatial zoning of Skyjack’s SJ85 AJ was a key component in the decision making process. It’s been so popular with their customer base that companies are calling in and asking for the SJ85 AJ by name.
“The main difference between the SJ85 AJ and other 80 ft (24.38 m) articulating booms is the riser design. While most articulating booms in that class employ a riser that both extends and raises, the SJ85 AJ features a single function riser that simply goes straight up and down,” explains Corey Connolly, product manager at Skyjack. “Our SkyRiserTM feature ensures movement in a true vertical manner, which reduces the amount of repositioning the operator needs to do,” Connolly continues. “Eliminating the extending and retracting function from the riser provides simple functionality and saves the operator time while cycling through the reach envelope.”
With two locations in Miami, Miami Tool Rental is excited to continue their exponential growth, and are happy to have Skyjack on board as a supplier of mobile elevating work platforms.
