Genie's GS-2669 RT scissor lift combines a 26-ft. access platform height with 1,500-lb. capacity on a chassis just 69 in. wide. It is part of powered access manufacturer Genie's growing family of RT scissor lifts that also includes 33- and 40-ft. tall powered access models, as well as electrically powered versions designed to work both outdoors and indoors.

JCB's 510-56 Loadall telescopic handler offers 10,000-lb. maximum capacity, as well as the option of lifting on tires or with front-mounted stabilizers. With stabilizer support, the JCB telehandler can lift 4,000 lbs. to its full 56-ft. height, or provide 42-ft. forward reach with 3,000-lb. capacity. On tires alone, the JCB 510-56 forklift can lift 3,000 lbs. to a height of 52 ft. or 300 lbs. at 42-ft. forward reach.

The highest-capacity telescopic handler featured in the 2012 Lift and Access Showcase walkarounds was Xtreme Manufacturing's XR3034. Designed as a pick-and-carry telehandler, it does not have outriggers, so all capacities are on rubber. The forklift operator can lift the Xtreme telehandler's maximum capacity of 30,000 lbs. to a height of 27 ft., or lift 12,000 lbs. to its maximum lift height of 34 ft. The forklift will handle that same 12,000 lbs. at its maximum forward reach of 17'6".

The Skyjack SJ 6826 RT scissor lift offers the same industry leading rugged, robust, and reliable design features that have made Skyjack scissor lift's famous. Equipped with an exclusive Crossover Symmetrical 4WD system for superior traction, and featuring 50% gradeability, this powered access machine can operate on the most challenging job site terrain.

Ideal for bridge construction, power plant services, and heavy construction, Skyjack's ZB2044 telescopic handler is in a class of its own. With a maximum capacity of 20,000 lbs., the Skyjack ZB2044 forklift features a three-section boom for a lift height of 44'. Robust, rugged, and reliable, the ZB2044 telehandler offers unparalleled jobsite productivity for forklift operators, and its superior maneuverability and mobility make it the perfect substitute for heavy cranes and material handlers.

CTE has released a video that explains the various steps for the proper use of the harnesses, starting with the first information regarding the fit (almost like a jacket), then it analyzes the various points of locking legs, fixing belts and connecting the cord, so to be ready to work safely at height. In this sense, we need to be careful for any simple everyday things, because they need always a lot of attention.

Combining a working height of 69'7" (21.2 m), a horizontal reach of 40' (12.2 m), and an up and over clearance of 27'6" (8.4 m), Skyjack's SJ63 AJ articulating boom lift is designed for versatility. Superior positive traction and terrainability is provided by the axle-based 4WD used in many of Skyjack's powered access product designs, which accounts for a proven low maintenance, rugged, and reliable drive train. 360 degree turret rotation and zero tail swing allow for flexible operation of this boom lift in tight locations.

Joe Mastanduno, rental account manager for John Deere Construction & Forestry, discusses the upcoming opportunities for Tier 4 engines. These engine will be included in the majority of lifting equipment, including cranes, aerial lifts, and rough-terrain forklifts. The presentation was made during the 2012 SAF-T Conference webinar series. For more videos from this series, visit www.saf-tconference.com.
