Snorkel reaches above and beyond at ConExpo 2020
Snorkel says it is reaching above and beyond at ConExpo 2020 with the launch of the world’s largest self-propelled boom lift.
Dubbed a ‘Mega Boom’, the new Snorkel 2100SJ telescopic boom lift reaches a maximum platform height of 210ft (64.0m), a horizontal outreach up to 100ft (30.4m) and an unrestricted platform capacity of 660lb. (300kg). For enhanced access and flexibility at height, a 30ft (9.1m) jib boom, with a working arc of -55 to +73deg, combines with 150deg rotation of the 8ft by 3ft (2.4m x 0.9m) tri-entry platform.
Designed in-house by Snorkel’s engineering team, the 2100SJ features a number of patent pending innovations, and a significantly increased working envelope over the current industry standard. Equipped with five steering modes, and with a stowed transport width of just 8ft 2in. (2.5m), the Snorkel 2100SJ has been designed for ease of transportation and manoeuvrability on the jobsite.
Shown as a preview, Snorkel will be accepting pre-orders for the 2100SJ at the show, with first deliveries scheduled for early 2021.
The 2100SJ is on display at the show along with a number of other new product launches. This will include two new large deck construction scissor lift families, including a range of four ultra-high capacity models, reaching up to 70ft (21.3m) working height.
