The Rental Show 2015 Sets The Stage For The Launch Of Snorkel’s First Ever Telehandler

New Orleans (February 23, 2015) – Snorkel is officially debuting its first ever telehandler at The Rental Show in New Orleans this week.  The Snorkel SR5919 is the first model of the brand new line of rough terrain telescopic handlers. 

The SR5919 can lift up to 5,900 lbs, has a 19-foot maximum lift height, and an 11-foot maximum forward reach.  The machine is 71-inches wide and 6-foot 7-inches tall with a 10.8-inch ground clearance, and an 11-foot turning radius. 

The heavy-duty, all-steel lift is designed to give the operator full 360° visibility from the cab, improving jobsite safety and productivity. The lift is available with a choice of open cab, enclosed cab, or enclosed cab with heat and AC, and is fitted with a suspension seat as standard, as well as a solid steel dash with display screen and suspended pedals.

Built to perform in rental and construction applications, the SR5919 has a solid steel plate chassis, a large cross-section boom with wear pads and protected tilt and extend cylinders to prevent damage, steel hydraulic and fuel tanks, with a 17 gallon fuel capacity, melonite pins and a ductile steel manifold.

The Snorkel SR5919 is a cost-competitive, high quality telehandler that is now available for order.  For more information, please visit
