Snorkel is to add two new Chinese built aerial lifts to its range at bauma China today.
The new models are Chinese versions of the company’s 46ft A46JRT articulated and 66ft 660SJ telescopic boom lifts. They will be built at the manufacturer’s 3,000 square metre production facility in Jintan, Jiangsu Province. Snorkel began its local production in 2017 with the assembly of two electric slab scissor lift models, the 19ft S3219E and 32ft S4732E, followed by the 46ft A46JE electric articulated boom lift in 2018, and the 38ft A38E electric articulated boom lift in 2019.
The A46JRT features four wheel drive, has a 16.3 metre working height with an outreach of 7.35 metres at an up & over height of 7.67 metres. The 1.5 metre articulated jib offers additional versatility while its boom configuration provides zero tail swing. The 1.83 by one metre deep platform has a maximum capacity of 227kg – enough to two people with their tools and equipment.
The 66ft 660SJ telescopic boom lift is equipped a two metre articulating jib, with a 22.1 metre maximum working height and an outreach of up to 18 metres, with an unrestricted platform capacity of 272kg.
Chief executive Matthew Elvin said: “We continue to expand our offering in China, working closely to meet the requirements of our customer base, and we are confident that these two new models will be well received in the market. Although unable to attend in person this year, I wish our Snorkel China team, our customers and vendors, and all those involved in bauma China a safe and successful show.”
