Snorkel used Bauma China 2016 to showcase its most popular electric lifts. On display at the event were three of the largest models in the company's electric scissor lift family: the S4732E with a 11.8m (38 ft) working height, with sister model, the 7.79m (25 ft) working height Snorkel S3219E on display on the IPAF stand.
Alongside the S4732E, Snorkel showed the TM12, a self-propelled telescopic mast lift which is capable of lifting two people indoors to a working height of 5.6m (17 ft, 11 in). Snorkel recently enhanced the model's hydraulic powered descent and added a 0.5m (20 in.) roll-out deck extension as standard.
Also on display was the Snorkel UL40 - a robust push-around telescopic mast lift that can lift one person plus tools to a working height of 14.1m (46 ft). The lift can be pushed into position and can pass through standard doorways.
Representing boom lifts, Snorkel dispalyed the A38E and A46JE models. These electric articulated boom lifts are fitted with non-marking tires for internal use. The Snorkel A38E weighs 3,770kg (9,140 lbs) and can lift two people plus tools to a working height of 13.5m (43 ft, 7 in). The Snorkel A46JE can lift two people with tools to a working height of 16.0m (52 ft, 3 in) and is fitted with Snorkel Guard secondary guarding as standard.
Snorkel supports customers in China from their 3,000sqm (32,290 sq ft) facility in Jintan, Jiangsu, which opened this year.
“The investment in our new facility in Jintan underlines our commitment to our customers in this region," said Snorkel CEO, Matthew Elvin. "We have employed a direct sales and service team, to better support both our independent distributors and our direct customers, and our Jintan facility means that we have new machines and spare parts on hand to ensure a high quality service.”
