The new boom lift is part of a new family of four telescopic boom lifts introduced by Snorkel this year, including the larger 660SJ that was officially launched in Germany in April this year and is now available in Australia.

The all-steel Snorkel 460SJ delivers a working height of 16.0m, an outreach of 12.2m and can lift up to 272kg.

The 460SJ features a 2m jib boom that can articulate 135 degrees, and the lift is also available without the jib boom — as the 400S model — with a working height of 12.2m.

Fitted with a fixed axle as standard, the 460SJ is designed for rough terrain performance with a traction manifold that delivers oil to all four wheels at all times, providing constant four-wheel drive, and it also has the ability to climb steep gradients.

The 460SJ features Snorkel’s new tri-entry removable platform that is equipped with the Snorkel Guard secondary guarding system as standard, and the lift has proportional joystick controls for all functions, including platform rotation and level adjustment.

The national dealer for Snorkel, Ahern Australia, also displayed an Xtreme Manufacturing XR1255 rough terrain telehandler at the Hire 16 show. It  can lift up to 5,400kg, has a maximum reach of 16m, and is designed for multi-storey construction projects.

Ahern Australia specialises in mobile elevating work platforms, with four fully-equipped sales and service facilities in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth.
