Siegl Gmbh Invests In Snorkel Electric Scissor Line At Bauma 2016

Siegl; Munich; Electric Scissor Lifts; S3215E; S3219E; S3220E; S3226E; S4726E; S4732E; Ahern Deutschland; Bernhard Kahn;

Munich, Germany (27th May 2016) – Longstanding Snorkel customer, Siegl GmbH, placed an order for twelve Snorkel lifts during Bauma 2016.  Impressed by Snorkel’s new line of electric slab scissor lifts, the order included the new S3215E and S3220E models that were officially launched at the show.

The new S3215E and S3220E scissor lifts join the existing family of four hydraulic drive lifts, which include the S3219ES3226ES4726E and S4732E. The S3215E delivers a working height of 6.5m and can lift up to 272kg. The S3220E delivers a working height of 8.1m, and a substantial lift capacity of 408kg.

All six electric scissor lift models feature Snorkel’s innovative twin-door service trays, providing ‘inside-out’ access to all of the key machine components, as well as a fixed upper control box, saloon-style entry gates as standard, dual-shear scissor stack design with upsized pins, proportional descent, telescopic extension deck, upsized kingpins, and a gravity-actuated pothole protection system.

Working as a regional distributor under Ahern Deutschland, Siegl GmbH promotes Snorkel lifts to the industrial and trade sector customers in the Bavaria region in the south of Germany.  Founded by Josef Siegl in 1963, the business is now led by his sons, Josef Christian Siegl and Alexander Siegl.  They are focused on the sale and rental of aerial work platforms and forklifts, predominantly into the industrial sector.

Siegl GmbH placed the order for twelve units with Roman Heindl from Ahern Deutschland during the show.  In addition to six Snorkel electric scissor lifts, the order also included two TM12 self-propelled telescopic mast lifts, two A38E electric articulated boom lifts, an MB20J electric mast boom lift, and a TL37J trailer mounted boom lift.

Alexander Siegl, Managing Director of Siegl GmbH said, “I am really impressed with Snorkel’s new line of electric slab scissor lifts.  They have many features that will benefit both my rental fleet and our end-user customers, thanks to their simple and robust design, making operation and servicing easy.”

Bernhard Kahn, Managing Director of Ahern Deutschland added, “We are thankful to Siegl for their continued loyalty and faith in our quality Snorkel product line.  We are confident that our new scissor lifts will be a strong addition to their fleet.”

Ahern Deutschland is the new sales and service operation for Snorkel aerial work platforms and Xtreme Manufacturing telehandlers in Germany & Austria.  Headquartered in Weyerbusch, in the Westerwald region of Germany, between Cologne & Frankfurt, Ahern Deutschland is focused on providing fast availability of equipment and parts, backed by high-quality, local service and support.
