Snorkel launching telehandler line in 2014

22 January 2014

Just months after taking the majority hold of aerial work equipment manufacturer Snorkel, Xtreme's Don Ahern told Access, Lift & Handlers during World of Concrete that Snorkel will launch a brand new series of North American telehandlers in 2014.

Aimed to compete with popular telehandler products currently manufactured by Genie, JLG and Manitou and others, the Snorkel line will feature units in the 5,900-pound to 12,000-pound capacity range. The first series will be aimed toward the North American market and will come to the market in 2014, while a global series will hit the market in 2015. Specifications and other information are still being tweaked, but look to the March issue of ALH for more in-depth coverage.

Visitors on the Xtreme/Snorkel stand at ConExpo 2014, meanwhile, can expect a range of equipment from both manufacturers, including a new large-capacity telehandlers= from Xtreme and new and updated or revamped Snorkel models. ConExpo runs March 4-8 in Las Vegas. See our March issue for our guide to the show.
