Snorkel Raises The Stakes As The ARA Show Returns To Las Vegas

Snorkel showcases lithium products at The ARA ShowCelebrating the return of The ARA Show to Las Vegas, Snorkel™ is upping the stakes with its largest-ever display at the annual trade show for the North American rental industry.

With two booths, totaling more than 6,400 sq. ft. (595sqm) of exhibit space, Snorkel has a large indoor display in the Construction Hall, plus another large booth at the entrance to the outdoor Bronze Lot, where its industry-leading Snorkel 2100SJ telescopic boom lift will be showcased to the rental sector for the first time.

Raising the Standard

One of the world’s largest self-propelled aerial lifts, the Snorkel 2100SJ was originally previewed at CONEXPO-CON/AGG in March 2020. The latest model on display at The ARA Show includes a number of upgrades, including greater forward reach, now 115 ft. (35.1m), as well as improved ground clearance and remote secondary controls, enabling the operator to freely move around the platform and face the working area when positioning at height.

The Snorkel 2100SJ delivers a maximum working height of 216 ft. (66.0m), has a 30 ft. (9.1m) jib boom and an industry-leading working envelope volume of 7.11 million ft3 (0.2 million m³). Benefitting from five-steering modes, including lateral steer which enables the lift to be driven side-to-side along a building with the wheels in a 90° position, the Snorkel 2100SJ is able to navigate confined spaces with a best-in-class 8 ft. 6 in. (2.6m) inside turning radius with the axles extended.Snorkel 460SJ upgraded with a dual capacity envelope

It also has multiple patent-pending design features, including a secondary control pendant in the platform so that the operator can face the direction of travel for precise positioning at height, as well as an innovative axle extension design where the wheels ‘drive’ the axles into position to eliminate tire scrub and provide a smoother extension experience than other systems on the market.

Alongside the Snorkel 2100SJ on the outdoor booth, Snorkel is highlighting its two new large deck, rough terrain construction scissor lift families. The Snorkel S9043RT represents the high capacity family, reaching a maximum working height of 49 ft. (15.1m) and capable of lifting a platform capacity of up to 1,500 lbs. (680kg). Showcasing the new ultra-high capacity family, the Snorkel S9043RT-HC also reaches a maximum working height of 49 ft. (15.1m), but can lift up to 3,500 lbs. (1,587kg). The Snorkel 660SJ telescopic boom lift fitted with an optional pressure washing package completes the 2,400 sq. ft. (223sqm) outdoor booth.

New Products & New Features

On its indoor booth, Snorkel is highlighting its family of nine lithium-electric powered alternatives to diesel powered models to the North American rental industry. The lithium-electric Snorkel SL26RTE Speed Level takes pride of place displayed on ramps, and sits alongside the worlds-first lithium-electric compact rough terrain telehandler, the Snorkel SR5719E.

Recently upgraded to feature increased lifting capacities utilizing a dual envelope, the Snorkel 460SJ mid-size telescopic boom lift will be shown, as well as the Snorkel S4740E electric slab scissor lift which is now in full production.Three for Free Snorkel S3006P Giveaway

Snorkel is also using the show as a global launchpad for its new telematics offering, Snorkel OnSite™. Powered by Trackunit®, Snorkel OnSite is a full-service telematics offering that is available on most current Snorkel mobile elevating work platforms and telehandlers, which are designed to be telematics-ready featuring a compatible connection for the telematics module. Visitors to the Snorkel booths will be able to find out more about the solution, and will be invited to celebrate the launch by attending a Snorkel and Trackunit jointly-hosted reception on Tuesday evening.

A winner will be drawn each day, with the prize draw taking place live on the Snorkel indoor booth and also streamed on social media.
