Upgraded Snorkel A62JRT Articulated Boom Enters UK Production

Snorkel A62JRT Articulated Boom Lift

Snorkel is pleased to announce it is introducing an upgraded version of its popular Snorkel A62JRT articulated boom lift, which is now in full production in Snorkel’s manufacturing facility in the UK.

Reaching a maximum working height of 20.8m, the Snorkel A62JRT is diesel-powered, rough terrain articulated boom lift, capable of lifting up to 227kg. Featuring a class-leading working envelope, the A62JRT boasts compact dimensions, zero tailswing and an ultra-tight inside turning radius, as well as powerful hydrostatic four-wheel drive for rough ground conditions.

The upgrades introduced in January 2021, include a new Kubota V2403 Stage V/Tier 4 Final compliant diesel engine. When combined with improvements in the hydraulic circuits, the upgraded A62JRT reduces fuel consumption by up to 50%.

In addition to the new engine, the A62JRT has been upgraded with Snorkel’s standardized control system with onboard diagnostic display, for easier servicing, maintenance and troubleshooting. This is the same diagnostics system used across a large proportion of the Snorkel product range for increased familiarly for operator and service engineers alike.

With a focus on commonality, the A62JRT now features Snorkel’s standardized tri-entry boom platform with universal mounting, which is also used on most Snorkel boom lifts, including the 400S/460SJ and 600S/660SJ mid-size telescopic boom lifts. The new platform delivers a more ergonomic user experience and joystick arrangement, as well as rental-friendly features, including a six-bolt platform release for fast replacement in case of damage, and removable floor sections for quick repair and replacement between hires.

The upgraded Snorkel A62JRT is now in full production and available to order.
