Snorkel Unveils New Line of Material Lifts at Rental Show | Construction News


At the Rental Show 2017, Snorkel will launch of a line of six material lifts with best-in-class load capacities.

The new range consists of two product families.

The three "MLC"models are designed for heavy-duty, construction applications. The Snorkel ML12C offers 11'6" (3.5m) of lift height with up to 750 lbs. (340kg) of load capacity at a 14-in. (0.36m) load center. The larger Snorkel ML18C offers up to 16'10" (5.1m) lift height with up to 700-lb. (318kg) load capacity at a 14-in. (0.36m) load center. The largest model in the family is the Snorkel ML24C that can lift up to 650 lbs. (295kg) at a 14-in. (0.36m) load center to a height of 22'7" (6.9m).

The three "MLM" models feature a shorter mast height to easily pass through a standard doorway without requiring tilt back. That makes them ideal for industrial and warehouse applications where loads may need to be moved throughout a facility. The Snorkel ML12M can lift up to 700 lbs. (318kg) at a 14-in. (0.36m) load center to a height of 10'10". At the same load center, the Snorkel ML16M and Snorkel ML20M can lift loads of 650 lbs. (295kg) and 600 lbs. (272kg) to lift heights of 14'5" (4.4m) and 17'11" (5.5m), respectively.

Designed to Boost Productivity

Snorkel material lifts feature a dual-handle, shift-on-the-fly, two-speed winch for increased productivity when lifting loads, up to twice as fast as other material lifts on the market. A cable guard and heavy-duty non-marking casters are fitted as standard, and the lifts are made of heavy-gauge aluminum extrusions and construction-grade cast metal cable pulleys for long working life. Adjustable loading wheels make light work of transporting the lifts. They can even be transported in some vans and SUVs. Quick-fold stabilizer legs do not require tools, making set-up easy, and non-marking wheels allow the lifts to be easily maneuvered, even in the stowed position.

A Complementary Addition

Snorkel CEO, Matthew Elvin, said, “Material lifts are a natural addition to the Snorkel product portfolio. They are commonly purchased by rental companies as well as by contractors, which aligns with the efforts of our existing Snorkel sales and distribution channels. We see them as a complementary product, that ultimately reinforces our focus on and commitment to safe working at height, whether we are lifting people or materials.”
