Snorkel is launching the production-ready electric-drive version of its popular TM12 self-propelled telescopic mast lift in its booth at The Rental Show 2017.

The Snorkel TM12E can lift up to 500 lbs. (227kg) to a platform height of up to 12 ft. (3.6m), and weighs in at 1,950 lbs. (884kg). The highly efficient electric drive system delivers longer duty cycles, thanks to drawing up to 50% fewer amps than the hydraulic-drive version.

Elliott Equipment Company is launching a major redesign of its 18-ton-capacity 1881TM tractor-mounted boom truck model at ConExpo 2017.

The redesigned 1881TM boom truck features 18-ton maximum lifting capacity and Elliott’s proven five-section 81-ft. telescopic boom with a compact stowed length and a 91-ft. tip height.

The new 1881TM includes integrated out-and-down main outriggers that can used at full or mid-span lengths. That allows easier setup in a variety of terrain and jobsite conditions.
