Snorkel presents two new China-built boom lifts

Snorkel is showcasing its expanded China-built product line with two new boom lift models – the A46JRT and 660SJ – at this year’s bauma China. This is the first major exhibition the company has attended since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic.

From its 3,000 sq m production facility in Jintan, Jiangsu Province, China, Snorkel began assembly in 2017 of two electric slab scissor lift models, the S3219E and S4732E. This was followed by the introduction of the A46JE electric articulated boom lift in 2018, and the A38E electric articulated boom lift in 2019.

Growing in line with the market, Snorkel is continuing to add new models to its China assembly facility to meet customer demand. As boom lifts increase in popularity across China, the company has expanded its domestically assembled offering with the new A46JRT and 660SJ diesel-powered boom lifts.

Designed for tough jobsites, the Snorkel A46JRT articulated boom lift combines powerful four-wheel drive with high manoeuvrability and precision. This model provides a working height of up to 16.3 m and an outreach of 7.35 m. Ideal for working in tight spaces, the A46JRT has an inside turning radius of just 0.8 m, and the boom operates with zero tail swing. The spacious 1.83 m x 1.0 m platform can lift two people with tools and the 1.5 m jib offers additional flexibility at height.

Delivering excellent rough terrain performance, the Snorkel 660SJ telescopic boom lift is equipped with an 18.3 m boom and a 2.0 m articulating jib. The unit features a 20.1 m maximum platform height, an outreach of up to 18.0 m, and an unrestricted lift capacity of up to 272 kg. Fitted with a 2.0 m jib boom for additional flexibility, this heavy-duty lift measures 2.46 m wide and the stowed length of 10.5 m can be reduced to 8.5 m for transport by stowing the jib underneath the boom.

The first China-built A46JRT and 660SJ are on display at bauma China, alongside the Snorkel A38E and A46JE electric articulated boom lifts, and the S3219E and S4732E electric scissor lifts, on Snorkel’s 120 sq m booth in the outdoor area.

Matthew Elvin, CEO of Snorkel 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.”
