Snorkel Unveils “Mega” Scissor Lift At Conexpo-Con/Agg 2020

To meet customer demand for increased jobsite productivity, Snorkel is bringing a new family of large deck construction scissor lifts to the market, with a focus on ultra-high lifting capacities.

Designed to lift more materials to the working area, the new family includes four models ranging from the S9031RT-HC with a maximum working height of 37 ft. (11.4m) and lifting capacity of 4,000 lbs. (1,587kg), to the S9070RT-HC that will be shown at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020, with a maximum working height of 76 ft. (23.3m) and a lifting capacity of 2,000 lbs. (907kg).

With dual powered extension decks and four hydraulic stabilizers with automatic levelling as standard, the new family delivers a high specification lift to handle the heaviest duty applications.  With a maximum platform size of 27 ft. (8.23m) x 7 ft. 6 in. (2.28m) when fully extended, the new lifts provide a vast working area and help to reduce the number of times the operator needs to lower and elevate the lift.

The smaller S9031RT-HC and S9043RT-HC models can both be driven at full height, and the larger S9056RT-HC and S9070RT-HC can be driven at height up to 44 ft. (13.1m).  With 50% gradeability, all four lifts are powered by a Kubota diesel engine and have superb four-wheel drive capabilities with large 36 in. (0.91m) high grip foam-filled tires for handling rough terrain.

With material loading in mind, this scissor lift family was designed with an integrated double material loading gate on the platform to allow a full-size pallet to be placed directly onto the deck. This makes the loading of materials onto the lift both safer and more efficient, as the correct material handling equipment can be used.

With weights ranging from 15,000 lbs. (6,803kg) to 25,500 lbs. (11,566kg), the high-capacity Snorkel scissor lift family has been designed to provide a long-working life. The dual-shear scissor stack has been constructed from high strength steel for durability and lighter overall weight.

From a service perspective, the new lifts share many common parts with other Snorkel lifts, including the same drive system as the Snorkel mid-size telescopic boom lift family and on-board diagnostics system for operator and service engineer familiarity. A side mounted engine with swing-out tray makes light work of engine maintenance.

Showcasing the S9070RT-HC at CONEXPO/CON-AGG 2020, Snorkel expects that this family will enter full production in late 2020.

Visit Snorkel at Booth #F6929 in the Festival Lot at CONEXPO-CON/AGG from March 10-14, 2020.
