New large deck construction scissor lift trio from Snorkel

Entering the large deck construction scissor lift market for the first time, Snorkel is introducing the first model in its new family of three heavy duty, rough terrain construction scissor lifts.

The Snorkel S9043RT is the mid-size model in the new family, reaching a maximum working height of up to 15.1 m and has a platform capacity of 680 kg. The smaller S9033RT features a maximum working height of 11.8 m and a lifting capacity of 1,134 kg. The largest model in the range, the S9053RT, offers a 17.9 m maximum working height and a 380 kg lifting capacity.

Equipped with powerful four-wheel drive and a 24.9-hp Kubota diesel engine, the new scissor lift family can handle the toughest jobsites with high grip foam filled tyres and 50% gradeability. The S9033RT and S9043RT can both be driven at full height, and the S9053RT can be driven at up to 9.1 m, and comes with four hydraulic stabilisers with automatic levelling as standard.

The spacious 3.58 m x 2.28 m platform includes a single 1.37-m manual roll-out deck extension as standard, which increases the working area to 4.95 m x 2.28 m. The working area can be increased further to 6.7 m x 2.28 m with the dual extension deck option, which is available either as manual or powered roll-out.

Designed primarily for use on construction projects, the large deck scissor lifts can be customised with a range of accessory packages, including a cold weather package and a choice of 2 kW or 12 kW hydraulic generators.

Weighing 5,443 kg, 6,350 kg and 7,484 kg respectively, the new Snorkel construction scissor lift family is designed with ease of serviceability in mind. A side mounted engine with a swing-out tray provides easy access for service and maintenance, and the lifts are fitted with the same on-board diagnostics system as many other Snorkel models, as well as commonality of spare parts with Snorkel’s mid-size telescopic boom lift family.

According to Snorkel, the S9043RT is expected to enter production in late 2020, along with the S9033RT and S9053RT.
