Snorkel Makes Equipment Deliveries ‘E-Z’ At The Cra Rental Rally 2017

Las Vegas, NV (30 January 2017)  Leading aerial work platform manufacturer, Snorkel, will have a large presence at the annual Rental Rally Trade Show organized by the California Rental Association.

Recognized as a Silver Sponsor of the trade show, Snorkel will display nine models from its range on a 2,000 sq. ft. booth at the front of the show hall at South Point Casino, in Las Vegas, Nevada at the end of January.

For the first time at the Rental Rally trade show, Snorkel will display its custom delivery truck bed system, known as the Snorkel EZ-Loader.  Available in 3 sizes, the truck bed features a ramp that can be deployed in just 17 seconds, for efficient delivery or collection of rental equipment.  This is particularly important where deliveries take place on a road or in a confined area, where the delivery truck may be delaying other traffic. Other benefits of the truck bed include a knife-edge ramp for easier loading of large pieces of equipment, a longer ramp providing a lesser incline for electric equipment, such as scissor lifts, and dock loading ability.

A Snorkel EZ-Loader EZ-18 will be shown on the booth at CRA Rental Rally, with a bed capacity of 18,000 lbs., a 10,000 lbs. dove tail capacity and a 5,000 lbs. tow capacity.  Alongside the EZ-Loader, Snorkel will be showing rental-popular models from its range, including three of its new line of electric scissor lift family, the S3219E, S3226E and S4732E.  Snorkel will also display its latest telescopic boom lift, the Snorkel 660SJ, and the Snorkel A46JRT diesel articulated boom lift.

Win a Snorkel S3008P Scissor Lift at CRA Rental Rally 2017

The Snorkel S3008P push-around mini scissor lift will be featured on the Snorkel booth. Designed for low-level construction and facilities maintenance applications, the S3008P is an innovative push-around mini scissor lift, which provides a cost-effective way to safely work at low level heights indoors.  Designed to withstand the demands of construction sites and the rental industry, the Snorkel S3008P is a heavy-duty and robust mini scissor lift, which is easy to use and simple to maintain.  The S3008P can lift 500 lbs. (227kg) to a working height of 14 ft. 2 in (4.3m).

Snorkel’s push-around electric scissor lifts are loaded with standard features including an auto brake system, tilt sensor, battery charge indicator, saloon gates, forklift points, emergency lowering, non-marking casters, and slide-out service trays for easy maintenance.

Snorkel is giving rental companies visiting the CRA Rental Rally 2017 the chance to enter a prize drawing to win a Snorkel S3008P*.  Visitors simply need to drop their business card into the entry box on the Snorkel booth #708 before 12 noon on Wednesday, 1st February 2017.  The prize draw will take place on the CRA booth at 1:45pm on Wednesday, 1st February 2017. Entrants must be present at the drawing to win. *Terms and conditions apply, full details available on request.
