Snorkel is unveiling a new line of six material lifts at ConExpo 2017, along with the first Snorkel telehandler and a new self-propelled telescopic mast lift. Also, the company is showcasing a prototype electric drive slab scissor lift.
Following the introduction of the electric drive, 12-foot (3.6m) self-propelled telescopic mast lift, TM12E, at The Rental Show last week, Snorkel is unveiling a 16-foot version of the lift at ConExpo. The Snorkel TM16E features an efficient electric drive system that delivers longer duty cycles, a zero inside turning radius, and an electric braking system, consistent with the TM12E. Capable of lifting up to 500 pounds to a platform height of up to 16 feet, the TM16E includes a roll-out deck extension as standard, plus an upper control box with an integrated power to platform outlet, that is common with Snorkels electric slab scissor lift family.
Also at ConExpo, Snorkel unveiled its first ever telehandler. The Snorkel SR5519 can lift a load capacity of up to 5,500 pounds and can reach heights of up to 19 feet. Although designed to be competitive, the SR5519 is still rich on features, including a spacious cab and a large touchscreen interface in the cab for accessing load charts and manuals.
Following the official launch at The Rental Show, Snorkel also is showcasing the Snorkel ML18C material lift at ConExpo, part of its new line of six material lifts. The new material lifts all feature a dual-handle, shift-on-the-fly, two-speed winch for increased productivity when lifting loads, up to twice as fast as other material lifts on the market.
The company will be showcasing a prototype design of its next generation electric slab scissor lifts at ConExpo. The Snorkel S3019E is a brand new, ground-up design slab scissor lift featuring a low step-in height thanks to the sunken scissor stack that stows inside the chassis. The all-electric lift uses no hydraulic hoses, achieved through electric drive and electric steer. The Snorkel S3019E can lift up to 500 pounds to a platform height of up to 19 feet, and weighs 3,200 pounds.
