Snorkel to launch world’s largest boom

Snorkel’s 210 ft platform height S2100SJ.

Snorkel will launch the world’s largest self propelled boom lift at ConExpo 2020. 

Dubbed as a Mega Boom, the new Snorkel 2100SJ telescopic boom lift reaches a maximum platform height of 210 ft (64m), provides an industry-leading horizontal outreach up to 100 ft (30.4m), and an unrestricted platform capacity of 660 pounds (300kg).

A 30 ft (9.1m) jib boom, with a working arc of -55° to +73°, combines with the 150° rotation of the 8 ft x 3 ft (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, said the manufacturer.

Equipped with five steering modes, and with a stowed transport width of just 8 ft 2 in (2.5m), the Snorkel 2100SJ has been designed for ease of transportation and maneuverability 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.

Visit Snorkel at Booth #F6962 in the Festival Lot at ConExp, in Las Vegas, US, from 10-14 March, 2020 to see the 2100SJ on display, 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 70 ft. (21.3m) working height.
