The UK premier is at the Vertikal Days trade show at Haydock Park, 27-28 June..

The A62JRT is a self-propelled articulated boom mobile elevating work platform (MEWP). It provides a maximum platform height of 19m (62ft) and will go into production later this year. It replaces the Snorkel AB60JRT, offering improved drive and lift capabilities - particularly ‘up-and-over’ clearance - and a 100% reduction in tail swing compared to the older model.

Designed for rough terrain applications, the A62JRT shares a common chassis with Snorkel’s 46ft and 66ft telescopic booms, helping to simplify service and repair work.

It also lays claim to the largest platform cage in its class of 2.4m x 1.0m and the most compact length when stowed for transport, at 8.5m.

The interactive oscillating front axle, with hydrostatic 4WD keeps all four tyres in contact with the ground, for rough terrain drive performance – and works whether the machine is stowed or elevated.
