Another welcome addition to the fleet is the Skyjack 8841RT Diesel scissor lift.
The 8841 RT is another Skyjack big deck scissor with a big heart.
A large deck size is the number one requirement for these types of scissors. Either side of the already expansive platform is a 1.22m roll out extension which provides substantial expansion of the deck area as well as very useful ability to reach areas up and over obstacles – air conditioning or power units for example. Deck size is everything at this level – greater demands on construction projects have seen huge cladding or insulating pieces become standard.
A close second to the huge deck in features is the ability for these skyjack scissors on hire to tackle challenging conditions. A powerful 4 Wheel drive system is at the heart of this platform, fitted with what the manufacturer calls a Detroit Locker type rear differential and limited slip front differential. In practice this gives the operator plenty of control in tougher site conditions – no getting stuck with these skyjack scissors, particularly when they are fitted with terrain munching grip Lug tyres too providing positive traction across site.
Manufactured from robust steel – the 8841 RT has a growing reputation for strength and durability – particularly important on the construction sites across the UK.
And last, but by no means least – as with all Skyjack scissors, the 8841 RT is packed with all useful safety equipment – flashing lights, audible motion alarms, tilt alarms, anti-slip surface on the platform deck areas and lift cut out.
