Snorkel is launching several new products at this year’s The Rental Show including its new family of electric slab scissorlifts which are now available to order in North America. The family includes four models, ranging from the S3219E which delivers a 19-foot maximum platform height from a 32-inch wide chassis, to the S4732E which delivers a 32-foot maximum platform height from a 47-inch wide chassis. The new scissorlifts have been designed with a focus on the rental industry and include a number of innovative features that help lower total ownership costs.
Snorkel is also showcasing the first in a new line of mid-size telescopic boomlifts. The Snorkel 660SJ is a 66-foot rough terrain telescopic boomlift that includes a 6-foot 6-inch jib. Built to handle tough environments, the 660SJ boasts an all-steel cowling and boom, fully proportional controls for all boom functions, as well as a brand new tri-entry platform design featuring saloon-style entry gates and the new ‘Snorkel Guard’ secondary guarding system fitted as standard.
New Orleans is also the stage for the debut of the first-ever Snorkel telehandler. The Snorkel SR5919 is the first model of the brand new line of rough terrain telescopic handlers, which demonstrates the company’s expansion of its products beyond aerial work platforms.
Snorkel also showed its updated paint scheme. The company is introducing a brighter shade of orange paint to its lifts later this year as well as switch from black paint, predominantly used on chassis weldments, to a mid-grey paint, which improves visibility for service engineers working on the equipment.
Alongside the new product launches, Snorkel is displaying a number of established lifts that are popular with the rental industry, including the S3970RT compact rough terrain scissorlift; the MB26J self-propelled mast boomlift; the TM12 telescopic mast lift with roll-out extension deck; the A38E electric articulated boomlift; the A46JRT rough terrain articulated boomlift with a new Tier 4 compliant engine; and the EZ-Loader EZ18 custom-built delivery truck.
