Snorkel Expands Electric Scissor Lift Line

Snorkel, following up on last year's launch of its electric slab scissor lift line, is adding two new models, the S3215E and S3220E  The S3215E delivers a working height of 21 ft. and can lift up to 600 lbs. The S3220E delivers a working height of 26 ft. and lift capacity of 900 lbs.

The first S3220E models were ordered by German rental company, Buchtmann Arbeitsbühnen GmbH. Company owner Willi Buchtmann (center) with Don Ahern, CEO of Ahern Rentals, owner of Snorkel, and Bernhard Kahn of Ahern Deutschland (right). 

Both share a 32 in. wide chassis, common with the S3219E and S3226E models. The lifts feature Snorkel’s  twin-door service trays, providing ‘inside-out’ access to all of the key machine components, even when working in confined spaces.

The new lifts also share the attributes of the rest of the line, including the fixed upper control box, saloon-style entry gates as standard, dual-shear scissor stack design with upsized pins, telescopic extension deck, upsized kingpins, and gravity-actuated pothole protection system.

The new models, currently in production at Snorkel’s US manufacturing facility in Elwood, Kansas, will be officially launched at Bauma in April 2016.
