The company debuted its new telehandler alongside 14 core models
Snorkel used World of Concrete 2018 to launch three new products, including a compact telehandler for the U.S. market.
The Snorkel SR5719 telehandler is capable of lifting up to 5,732 pounds (2,599kg) with a maximum lift height of 19 feet (5.79m) and a maximum forward reach of 10 feet, 4 inches (3.14m). Thecompact unit features a Tier 4 Final Yanmar engine and weighs 10,360 pounds (4,700kg).
Alongside the new Snorkel telehandler, the brand new Snorkel S3215L lightweight electric scissor lift made its debut.
”Designed to deliver the same heavy duty durability of a construction-tough electric slab scissor lift, the S3215L has been strategically designed to deliver a much lower overall weight and floor loading than a conventional scissor lift,” Snorkel said. ”This has been achieved by using lighter weight materials, such as aluminum, where possible without compromising the stability and durability of the lift.”
With a maximum working height of 15 feet (4.57m), this lift weighs 2,100 pounds (952kg) and has a floor loading of 195 psf at maximum capacity, which is 670 pounds (303kg).
Visitors at World of Concrete also saw the new Snorkel TM16E, which is the larger version of the Snorkel TM12E launched at The Rental Show in 2017. The Snorkel TM12E is an electric drive version of the original TM12 self-propelled telescopic mast lift, that now incorporates a zero inside turning radius and a roll-out deck extension as standard.
”The Snorkel TM16E takes the TM12 concept to new heights, capable of reaching a maximum working height of up to 22 feet (6.7m), with a platform capacity of 500 pounds (227kg), whilst retaining the same compact dimensions of the TM12 and weighing in at just 2,360 pounds (1,070kg),” the company said.
All three of the new lifts are backed by Snorkel’s two year parts and labor, and five year structural warranty as standard.
