Snorkel upgrades mid-size telescopic booms with higher lift capacities

Snorkel has recently introduced its upgraded line of mid-sized telescopic boom lifts. The machines feature a new dual envelope design as standard, providing higher lifting capacities.

The 400S, 460SJ, 600S, 660SJ and 600S and 660SJ All-Terrain models have been fitted with a newly designed, globally-compliant jib boom. Measuring 1.67 m, this new jib boom reduces the stowed length of the unit for ease of transportation, while enabling higher lifting capacities.

All six upgraded models will now deliver a maximum platform capacity of 454 kg with a restricted working envelope and 272 kg unrestricted. Developed in response to customer demand, the higher lifting capacities enable users 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.

“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,” said Matthew Elvin, CEO of Snorkel.

The upgraded telescopic boom lifts from Snorkel are now in production and available to order globally.
