ARA/Rental show day one

The 2018 Rental show got off to a busy start, with visitors spending and placing orders more readily than they have for several years.
The new Skyjack SJ519TH big cab compact telehandler

The number of outright innovations were few – more evolutionary products than totally new. Although so far four products have jumped out... Skyjack's all new North American style 2.6 tonne/six metre telehandler with full size cab, the GMG stand with its all new 15ft compact lightweight scissor lift and a highly innovative secondary guarding system for both scissor lifts and booms.

Manitou used the show for the North American launch of its boom lift range, with the ATJ46 - a new mark III version of its popular ATJ16 with ANSI specification - look out for a CE version at Intermat.

And finally Snorkel unveiled its entry into the telehandler market with a 2.6 tonne/six metre badged Faresin unit. They have signed an OEM deal covering the construction industry. The new lightweight 15ft scissor lift has been structurally modified throughout to reduce weight and floor loadings without sacrificing size.
