Snorkel Launches Electric Drive Telescopic Mast Lift And Material Lifts At The Rental Show 2017

Orlando, Florida (February 27, 2017) – Snorkel, a leading global manufacturer of aerial lifts, is launching the Snorkel TM12E electric drive telescopic mast lift at The Rental Show 2017.

Originally displayed as a prototype at The Rental Show 2016, the production-ready Snorkel TM12E is now available to order.  The Snorkel TM12E features an efficient electric drive system that delivers longer duty cycles, a zero inside turning radius, and a new electric braking system.  Capable of lifting up to 500 lbs. (227kg) to a platform height of up to 12 ft. (3.6m), the TM12E includes a roll-out deck extension as standard, plus a new upper control box with an integrated power to platform outlet, that is common with Snorkel’s electric slab scissor lift family. 

Snorkel Expands Product Line With Range of Material Lifts

Snorkel is also expanding its product line with the addition of six material lifts.  Delivering best-in-class load capacities, the six lifts all feature a dual-handle, shift-on-the-fly, two-speed winch for increased productivity when lifting loads, up to twice as fast as other material lifts on the market.  To celebrate the launch, Snorkel is running a prize draw to win a Snorkel ML16M material lift on its booth at The Rental Show.

Forty Years Young

At The Rental Show 2017, Snorkel will display the very first Snorkel telescopic boom lift that has recently been fully restored.  The first Snorkel TB-42 was originally launched in 1977, and was still in full working order when it was driven into Snorkel’s rebuild facility in Elwood, Kansas in 2014 to begin the restoration process. The development of the TB-42 was led by Art Moore, Snorkel’s founder, who is being inducted into the American Rental Assocation Hall of Fame at The Rental Show 2017.
