Snorkel expands range with telehandlers

Snorkel has added a line of rough terrain telehandlers to its range, including the Snorkel SR626, SR1442, and SR1745 models.


First introduced at World of Concrete 2018 in Las Vegas, USA, the compact Snorkel SR626 telehandler is capable of lifting up to 2,599kg, with a maximum lift height of 5.79m and a maximum forward reach of 3.2m. Designed to be simple and robust, it is very easy to service and maintain and delivers high levels of operator comfort.

Weighing 4,700kg, the SR626 is fitted with a 70.3hp Tier 4 Final Yanmar diesel engine. At just 1.89m wide, compact dimensions make this model ideal for using in tight spaces. It is constructed from high-strength steel, with all frame welds completed on automated lines by robots for precision and consistency.

Bauma 2019 marked the official launch, outside of North America, for two new telehandlers. Joining the Snorkel SR626, the new Snorkel SR1442 and SR1745 expand the Snorkel rough terrain telehandler line to three models. Branded as the SR9244 and SR1045 respectively in The Americas, the SR1442 and SR1745 telehandlers are manufactured in Italy. The sister units are cost competitive telehandlers that are feature-rich yet simple to operate and maintain.

Equipped as standard with four-wheel drive and enclosed cabs with heat and air conditioning, the new SR1442 can lift up to 4,200kg, has a maximum lift height of up to 13.5m, and has a maximum forward reach of up to 9.5m. The larger SR1745 has a maximum lift height up to 16.4m, and a maximum forward reach of 12.6m, and can lift up to 4,535kg.

Geared toward the construction sector, each telehandler is built with a powerful Deutz Tier 4 Final diesel engine and multiple driving modes.

Additionally, these units are equipped with a new electronic transmission and axle. Its variable speed hydrostatic drive allows operators to adjust and more closely match speed and torque as required for each job.

The rough terrain telehandlers have a three-section boom that are wear pad mounted to provide durability and reliability when handling heavy loads.

Outriggers and auto-leveling capabilities come as standard. A frame sway up to 11° helps keep the machines steady while operating in tough environments. Proportional joystick controls and power-assisted steering also help increase safety and ease of use in rough terrain.

Ergonomically designed for ultimate operator comfort, the telehandler units feature fully enclosed cabs with heating and air conditioning and allows maximum visibility in all operating conditions.

The Snorkel telehandlers are fitted with adapters that can be customised with a range of attachments.

Celebrating its 60th anniversary in 2019, Snorkel boasts more than 50 products, six manufacturing plants on four continents, and over 200 distribution locations worldwide.

All Snorkel lifts and telehandlers come with a five-year structural warranty, plus a two-year warranty for parts and labour. Snorkel lifts are available through the official Snorkel distribution partner, Ahern Australia.
