Improvements on A62JRT articulated model include new Kubota engine with up to 50% lower fuel consumption
Snorkel has announced that its upgraded A62JRT articulated boom lift has gone into full production and is now available to order.
The powered access equipment heavyweight said the diesel-powered, rough terrain A62JRT reaches a maximum working height of 20.8m and is capable of lifting up to 227kg.
Snorkel added that the model features a class-leading working envelope and has compact dimensions with zero tail-swing and an ultra-tight inside turning radius, as well as powerful hydrostatic four-wheel drive for rough ground conditions.
Upgrades to the model were introduced in January and include a new Kubota V2403 diesel engine, which, when combined with improvements in the hydraulic circuits, makes for an up to 50% reduction in fuel consumption. The upgraded model is gone into full production at Snorkel’s manufacturing facility in the UK, the company said.
In addition to the new engine, the A62JRT has been upgraded with Snorkel’s standardised 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 standardised 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,” said a statement from Snorkel.
