Ahern Chile & Ahern Argentina Team Up For Conexpo Latin America

High-reach equipment manufacturers, Xtreme Manufacturing & Snorkel, are returning to CONEXPO Latin America on 2-5 October, 2019, in Santiago, Chile. Both brands will be represented by Ahern Chile, the official distributor of Snorkel and Xtreme Manufacturing equipment in the country.

They will also be supported by team members from sister company, Ahern Argentina. Officially opened in August 2019, Ahern Argentina is part of the Ahern International division owned by Don Ahern, and provides sales, service and spare parts for Snorkel and Xtreme Manufacturing products in the Argentinian market from its facility in Buenos Aires.

Both Ahern Chile and Ahern Argentina also recently became official exclusive distributors in their respective territories for Ruthmann Bluelift tracked spider lifts, and visitors to CONEXPO Latin America will be able to learn more about these innovative lifts at the Ahern Chile stand.

Located at stand AD-850, Ahern Chile has a 120sqm outdoor space, where they will showcase a total of seven Snorkel products, including a selection of push-around, electric and rough terrain scissor lifts, and electric and diesel articulated boom lifts.

Snorkel is celebrating 60 years of innovation in 2019, and to showcase this at CONEXPO Latin America, Ahern Chile are displaying the revolutionary Snorkel Speed Level. Capable of climbing compound gradients of up to 50%, the Snorkel Speed Level can be self-levelled without stabilizers up to 9° front to rear, and 13° side to side, meaning it can be driven on slopes at full height. This maximizes productivity over traditional rough terrain scissor lifts, particularly in applications that require multiple stops on slopes, such as tunnel or road maintenance.

Featuring a spacious 1.72m x 4.23m platform, the Snorkel SL30SL Speed Level delivers a maximum working height of 11m, with a platform capacity of 590kg. A powerful diesel engine, four-wheel drive and high grip tyres ensures excellent performance on all types of terrain. The SL26SL Speed Level is also available, offering a maximum working height of 10m, and a platform capacity of 680kg.

On display alongside the Speed Level, Ahern Chile will be highlighting the Snorkel A62JRT diesel articulated boom lift. Combining superb maneuverability with power and precision, the Snorkel A62JRT delivers a tight inside turning radius, thanks to its optimized two-wheel steering and zero tail swing. Areas where this lift excels include a maximum platform height of 18.8m and “up and over” clearance at 9.0m. It also has the largest platform in its class and a very compact length when stowed for transport, at 8.5m.

Rounding out the 120sqm space, Ahern Chile will display the Snorkel S3010P push-around scissor lift, the S3219E electric scissor lift, the S3970RT compact rough terrain scissor lift, the A38E electric articulated boom lift, and the A46JRT diesel articulated boom lift.
