Snorkel upgrades mid-size boom line
By Lindsey Anderson05 October 2021
All Snorkel mid-size telescopic boom lift models will now feature a new dual envelope design as standard, delivering higher lifting capacities on all six models. The Snorkel 400S, 460SJ, 600S, 660SJ and 600S and 660SJ all-terrain have been fitted with a newly designed, globally compliant jib boom. Measuring 5 feet, 6 inches (1.67m), the new jib boom reduces the stowed length of the unit for ease of transportation, while enabling higher lifting capacities.
All six models will now deliver a maximum platform capacity of 1,000 pounds (454kg) with a restricted working envelope and 600 pounds (272kg) unrestricted. Developed in response to customer demand, the higher lifting capacities enable workers to carry additional tools and materials to the work area, increasing jobsite productivity. The latest models also feature upgraded controls with a visual indicator showing the operator which capacity zone they are in, and clearer graphical display for ease of operation.
Matthew Elvin, CEO, Snorkel, said, “We are very pleased to be able to give our customers more capacity and features on already popular models. We know that the increased capacity will be welcomed by our valued customers, and will play a part in delivering enhanced productivity on jobsites around the world.”
The upgraded models are now in production and available to order globally.
