The 18.8m (62ft) platform is built on Snorkel’s common Polaris chassis which claims best-in-class inside turning radius and compact stowed dimensions for transport. The oscillating front axle, with hydrostatic 4WD keeps all four tyres in contact with the ground and works whether the machine is stowed or elevated.

The A62JRT replaces the old Snorkel AB60JRT, offering significantly improved drive and lift capabilities (particularly “up-and-over” clearance) and a 100% reduction in tail swing compared to the older model. Areas where this lift excels include best-in-class maximum platform height at 18.8m (61ft 8ins) and best up-and-over clearance at 9m (29ft 6ins). It also has the largest platform cage in its class of 2.4m x 1.0m (96ins X 39ins) and the most compact length when stowed for transport, of 8.5m (27ft 10ins).

Snorkel global sales & marketing director Richard Tindale said: “The performance and low total ownership costs of this lift make it a great rental product for family-run companies through to the largest equipment rental corporations.”
