Machine information

The Skyjack SJ85AJ - 27.9m Diesel Boom Lift boasts precise positioning capabilities and a tight turning radius with minimal tail swing, making it the perfect boom lift for confined areas. The machine is equipped with a platform large enough for up to 3 people, which increases workplace efficiency. 

The machine features clever boom geometry which allows operators to lower the main fly boom to ground level and return to the position without the operator having to manually input the sequence of operations.
