Snorkel celebrates 60th anniversary with two new telehandlers at World of Concrete
Snorkel is celebrating the start of its 60th year in business with the launch of two new telehandlers at World of Concrete 2019.
One year on from the introduction of the 5,700 lbs. (2,600kg) capacity Snorkel SR5719 at World of Concrete 2018, the brand is introducing two larger capacity models – the Snorkel SR9244 and SR1054. The SR9244 offers a lift capacity of 9,260 lbs. (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. (4,535kg), a maximum lift height of 53 ft. 9 in. (16.4m) and a forward reach of 41 ft. 4 in. (12.6m).
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.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
