Snorkel debuted a number of new and ANSI-certified products on the first day of The Rental Show, March 9-12 in Orlando. Equipment included a compact, mini scissor, the now-ANSI-certified S3970RT which was previewed at Bauma and the EZ Loader series of delivery trucks for North America.

The 10-foot-platform-height, 30-inch-wide S3010E was first shown at Bauma but is now ANSI certified for the North American market. Talking to ALH at the show, the company said the mini scissor stems from interest in Europe for the Pop-Up product line, but with a need for a driveable option. The S3010E has a "high amp/hour rating for an extended operating period between battery charges," Snorkel said.

With a gross weight of 1,091 pounds (495kg), it is still lightweight enough for many floors with load-bearing restrictions. The machine is able to pass through standard interior doorways. It can be driven at full height and has a skid steer system for a zero inside turning radius. The unit also features two caster wheels with two traditional powered wheels. It is the smallest Snorkel offering.

Snorkel also launched the EZ Loader series of delivery trucks for North America. Drawing on decades of equipment transport experience, these truck beds are specifically designed for transporting lifting equipment. The hydraulic ramp deploys in 17 seconds, enabling fast and efficient loading and unloading. Its ARA booth features the EZ18, with a payload of 18,000 pounds, a 10,000-pound-capacity dove tail lift and towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds.

The company also showcased the Snorkel S3970RT, previewed at Bauma, which is now ANSI certified and available to order in the U.S. The compact, rough terrain scissor provides a maximum platform height of 37 feet, 8 inches (11.5m) but is 5 feet, 10 inches (1.8m) wide. With a lift capacity of 771 pounds (350kg) and a roll-out deck extension for extra reach, the S3970RT "is ideal for working in confined spaces, such as in between industrial buildings," the company said.

The company also has the A38E all-electric articulating boom with a new control system on display that is even easier to troubleshoot. And Snorkel will officially return to the TM12 nomenclature for its popular 12-foot self-propelled mast lift.
