Snorkel and UpRight say check your booms

By Maria Hadlow01 June 2009

Snorkel and UpRight is urging owners and users of three models of booms to carry out vital safety checks.

There is a potential problem with the Snorkel TB120, TB126J and PRO126: booms made before 2004 may not be fitted with the correct number of boom sensors.

Michael Wright, director of product support for UpRight Powered Access, said, "We believe the potential problem is limited some Snorkel TB120s, TB126Js and PRO126s, produced between 2000 and 2003.

"However, we strongly advise that owners check all machines from these three lines.

"It is vital that they conduct checks on the boom angle and length sensors and retrofit additional sensors where appropriate."

All owners, operators, or end users of a Snorkel TB120, TB126J, or PRO126, should contact their Snorkel or Upright Service representatives immediately:

  • Asia-Pacific: Doug Floyd +61 2 9725 4000
  • Europe, Middle East and Africa: Michael Wright +44 (0) 845 1550 057
