(4,200kg), a maximum lift height of 44 ft. 4 in. (13.5m) and a forward reach of 31 ft. 2 in. (9.5m), whilst the larger SR1054 delivers a lift capacity of 10,000 lbs.

Alongside the two new telehandlers, Snorkel will be displaying the well-received SR5719 telehandler, as well as a selection of popular Snorkel lifts, including the recently launched Snorkel 660SJ mid-size telescopic boom lift, the A46JRT and AB60J articulated boom lifts, material lifts, and a range of electric slab and rough-terrain scissor lifts. Snorkel will also be introducing a new narrow width compact rough-terrain scissor lift, the S2755RT, that can be easily transported between jobs on a trailer towed by a car or commercial vehicle.

Snorkel will also be showcasing its rebuild capabilities at World of Concrete with a Snorkel TB42 that has been fully rebuilt on one half of the machine, to illustrate the difference.
