Linamar Corporation’s Skyjack division just unveiled their newest product at The Rental Show in New Orleans, Louisiana. The company attended the largest rental show in North America this week and brought with them their SJ519 TH – the first compact telehandler in Skyjack’s product lineup.

“The addition of a compact telehandler means that Skyjack is now positioned to compete in a whole new class of
telehandlers,” says Barry Greenaway, product manager at Skyjack. “The SJ519 TH also redefines the compact market
with its class-leading cab size.”

This new product offers a 5,500 lbs (2,500 kg) lift capacity and a maximum lift height of 19.1 ft (5.82 m). With a fully
opening door operators can access their cab with ease. At its maximum reach of 11.25 ft (3.44 m) the SJ519 TH can
still lift a rated load of 4,400 lbs (2,000 kg). All major service points are easily accessible, and it’s the attention to
serviceability detail in the design of this product that further emphasizes Skyjack’s easy to do business with attitude.
“When we started the design phase for this product we knew we wanted to maintain similar features with our
existing telehandlers. It’s Skyjack’s consistency across products that adds to simplicity of service, and decreased
downtime for our customers,” asserts Greenaway.

TH will be driving onto rental yards Q3 2018.
