Mega rough-terrain scissor lift

The Snorkel S9070RT-HC large deck construction scissor lift with a focus on ultra-high lifting capacities.

Designed to lift more materials to the working area, the new family includes four models ranging from the S9031RT-HC with a maximum working height of 37 feet and lifting capacity of 4,000 pounds to the S9070RT-HC, with a maximum working height of 76 feet and a lifting capacity of 2,000 pounds.

Snorkel Mega scissor lift
Snorkel is bringing a new family of large deck construction scissor lifts to the market, with a focus on ultra-high lifting capacities.

The largest model, the Snorkel S9070RT-HC, features dual-powered extension decks and four hydraulic stabilizers with automatic leveling as standard equipment. With a maximum platform size of 27 feet x 7 feet 6 inches when fully extended, the new lift provides a vast working area, helping to reduce the number of times the operator needs to lower and elevate the lift.

The S9070RT-HC can be driven at heights up to 44 ft. With 50 percent gradeability, it is powered by a Kubota diesel engine and has four-wheel drive capabilities with large 36 in. high grip foam-filled tires for handling rough terrain.

With material loading in mind, this scissor lift was designed with an integrated double material loading gate on the platform to allow a full-size pallet to be placed directly onto the deck. This makes the loading of materials onto the lift both safer and more efficient, as the correct material handling equipment can be used.

Weighing 25,500 pounds, the high-capacity Snorkel S9070RT-HC has been designed to provide a long-working life. The dual-shear scissor stack has been constructed from high strength steel for durability and lighter overall weight.

From a service perspective, the new S9070RT-HC shares many common parts with other Snorkel lifts, including the same drive system as the Snorkel mid-size telescopic boom lift family and on-board diagnostics system for operator and service engineer familiarity. A side mounted engine with swing-out tray makes light work of engine maintenance.
