Snorkel highlights rough terrain capabilities at World of Concrete 2020
Snorkel is honing-in on its rough terrain models at World of Concrete 2020. Designed to be robust and heavy duty, Snorkel’s rough terrain lifts have a durable all-steel construction and are intended to be remanufactured. This is advantageous for contractors who purchase their lifts, rather than rent, as they can benefit from an extended working life.
At World of Concrete 2020, Snorkel will showcase its line-up of rough terrain telehandlers, including the SR5719 which was introduced at the show in 2018, and the SR9244 and SR1054 which were launched at World of Concrete 2019. These competitive telehandlers feature full-time four-wheel drive for tackling rough terrain and are equipped with power assisted steering for ease of manoeuvrability around the jobsite. Delivering high levels of operator comfort, the fully enclosed cab includes an adjustable suspension seat as standard, along with heat and air conditioning and proportional joystick controls.
Introduced to the US market in 2019, the Snorkel S2755RT is an ultra-narrow compact rough terrain scissor lift that delivers excellent four-wheel drive performance yet can fit between buildings and in confined spaces with ease. Measuring just 4ft 9in (1.45m) wide, the S2755RT can reach a working height of 33ft 1in (10.1m), has a platform capacity of 660lb (300kg) and weighs just 6835lb (3100kg).
Already proving popular with contractors, the Kubota diesel engine powered S2755RT is also available as a S2255RT with a working height of 27ft 10in (8.5m), and both models can be equipped with Snorkel’s bi-energy system, that enables the lift to be operated on either the diesel engine or on zero emission battery power. The bi-energy system will be on display at World of Concrete on the 5 ft. 10 in. (1.8m) wide Snorkel S3970BE, which is the largest compact rough terrain scissor lift in the Snorkel family, reaching a working height of up to 45 ft (13.8m).
Alongside rough terrain telehandlers and scissor lifts, Snorkel will be displaying examples from its rough terrain boom lift families. Representing telescopic booms will be the Snorkel 460SJ, which delivers unrivalled rough terrain performance thanks to a traction manifold that delivers oil to all four wheels at all times, providing constant 4-wheel drive. It can also tackle gradients of up to 50% and features an oscillating axle as standard. Powered by a Deutz 2.9L 49hp Tier 4 Final diesel engine, the 460SJ can reach a working height of 52ft. (16.0m), a forward reach of up to 42ft (12.8m) and can lift a platform capacity of up to 600lb (272kg).
Built for the toughest environments, the Snorkel AB60J articulated boom lift is industry-proven to withstand all types of jobsite conditions and deliver a long working life. Featuring a single riser boom design and a 6ft jib boom with a 75deg working arc, the AB60J is highly manoeuvrable yet designed to be simple to operate and maintain. Equipped with powerful four-wheel drive, foam filled lug tires and a Kubota V2403 65hp diesel engine, the AB60J can reach a working height of up to 65ft 9in (20.11m) and lift a platform capacity of up to 500lb (227kg).
Snorkel is exhibiting with sister company, Xtreme Manufacturing, at its 9500 sqft (882sqm) booth in the outdoor Silver Lot at World of Concrete 2020.
