Snorkel Prices a 60 Footer for Mass Markets

S6090RT will be the first volume-produced 60-ft. scissor lift

At CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2011, Snorkel will preview a rough terrain scissor lift with a 60-ft. platform height. While other 60-ft. scissor lifts are available from niche manufacturers, this is the first 60 footer priced for the volume market – all other major manufacturers stop at 52 ft.

Preliminary specifications for the S6090RT are a lift capacity of 1,252 lbs.; width of 90 in.; and a platform height of 60 ft. With the standard dual deck extensions fully extended, it provides a work area almost 24 ft. long.

Powered by a Kubota 44-hp water-cooled diesel engine, the S6090RT is the largest in a new family of four big deck, rough terrain construction scissors which also includes lifts with platform heights of 32 ft., 43 ft. and 52 ft. The machines feature auto-leveling hydraulic outriggers and twin deck extensions; however all units in the new SRT range can be specified without stabilizers.

Platform capacities of up to 2,000 lbs. are available on lower height units and all retain the impressive platform size of 72 x 287 in. when extended. Rough terrain capability is ensured by four-wheel drive, high-grip tires and standard oscillating axles, with 14-ins. of ground clearance. Snorkel expects that the SRT family will be in production by the third quarter of 2011.
