A number of new products from Snorkel made their introduction at The Rental Show this week, including its first-ever telescopic handler.

The Snorkel SR5919 is the first model in the company's line of RT telehandlers. It can lift up to 5,900 lbs., and it has a 19-ft, maximum lift height and an 11-ft. maximum forward reach. Overall, the unit measures 71 in. wide and 6'7" tall. Ground clearance is 10.8 in., and the machine has an 11-ft. turning radius.

The heavy-duty, all-steel lift is designed to give the operator 360° visibility from the cab, improving jobsite safety and productivity. The lift is available with either an open cab, enclosed cab, or enclosed cab with heat and AC. It is fitted with a suspension seat as standard equipment, as well as a solid steel dash with display screen and suspended pedals.

Built to perform in rental and construction applications, the SR5919 has a solid steel plate chassis, a large cross-section boom with wear pads, and protected tilt and extend cylinders to prevent damage, steel hydraulic and fuel tanks, melonite pins, and a ductile steel manifold.

The Snorkel SR5919 is now available for order.
