Aerial lift manufacturer Snorkel is reaching above and beyond with the launch of the world’s largest self-Source: Snorkel Source: Snorkel propelled boom lift.

Dubbed a ‘Mega Boom,’ the new Snorkel 2100SJ telescopic boom lift reaches a maximum platform height of 210 ft (64.0 m), provides a horizontal outreach up to 100 ft (30.4 m) and an unrestricted platform capacity of 660 lbs (300 kg). For enhanced access and flexibility at height, a 30 ft (9.1 m) jib boom, with a working arc of -55° to +73°, combines with 150° rotation of the 8 ft by 3 ft (2.4 m x 0.9 m) tri-entry platform.

Designed in-house by Snorkel’s engineering team, the 2100SJ features a number of patent pending innovations, and a significantly increased working envelope over the current industry standard. Equipped with five steering modes, and with a stowed transport width of just 8 ft 2 in (2.5 m), the Snorkel 2100SJ has been designed for ease of transportation and maneuverability on the jobsite.

The new self-propelled boom lift will be unveiled at ConExpo/Con-AGG 2020 in Las Vegas during March 10-14.
