EDITOR’S PICK

MID-SIZE MODELS OFFER BIG PERFORMANCE

Boost productivity with Snorkel’s mid-size boom lifts, which offer improved drive and lift capabilities when compared to previous models.

The A62JRT, which replaces the AB60JRT, features a 62-foot platform height articulated boom and a 100-percent reduction in tail swing. Up-and-over clearance for this model is 29 feet 6 inches, and the platform cage measures 96 by 39 inches. The A62JRT has a 27-foot 10-inch stowed length, ensuring easy transport. Optimized steering delivers a tight turning radius of 4 feet 6 inches, and an oscillating front axle with hydrostatic four-wheel-drive keeps all four tires in contact with the ground. The Model T66JRT, which replaces the TB66JRT and TB60RT lifts, has a 66-foot platform height and is available without the jib. The unit features a 4-foot, 6-inch turning radius, an 8-foot, 4-inch stowed height, a 28-foot transport length and a 47-inch tail swing. Both models use the company’s Polaris chassis and offer proportional control of drive, boom lift and lower and continuous 360-degree turntable rotation. The telescoping boom, platform and jib functions are infinitely controlled and variable through the use of toggle switches and a rheostat. The hydrostatic drive system provides high drive pressure to deliver increased torque to the wheels, resulting in improved power, gradeability and versatility. Snorkel expects to have both models in full production in the next summer.
