The Deutz 2.9L Tier 4 engines utilize a common rail fuel injection system. Gone is the familiar lift pump and injector pump arrangement. These engines use an electric fuel pump to deliver fuel through the filter to the high pressure fuel pump. The pump is mounted near the fuel tank near the replaceable cartridge fuel filter.

Electrical connectors are an effective and durable way to make terminal connections at valve coils, wiring harness connections, and various other locations on equipment. Enclosed wiring terminals help to protect against corrosion-causing moisture, however, they can be susceptible to water intrusion. Time, pressure washing, improper or loose re-assembly, and damage are all factors that contribute to failure of a connector.

Skyjack is constantly improving and developing new products for our customers.

The T and AJ model boomlifts are still relatively new with an 86-foot straight stick boom being the latest addition. An 85-foot articulating boom will debut soon.

As a required part of each inspection, wheel assemblies and their connection to the machine must be checked. This includes looking for any signs of damage and ensuring that the wheel bolts are properly tightened. If any wheel bolts are found to be loose or not at the correct torque value of 90 ft-lb (122 Nm), each component (wheel rim, wheel bolts, hub) should be inspected to ensure that there is no damage, prior to re-assembly.

The pothole protection system on the Skyjack SJIII model DC electric scissor lifts is designed to reduce ground clearance and assist in the stability of an elevated aerial platform in the event the aerial platform encounters a “drop-off” or “pothole.” As with all safety devices, periodic inspection and maintenance is required to ensure the proper operation of the pothole protection device.
