Snorkel has unveiled its first lithium-powered boom lift, the A46JRTE.

The new model boasts higher torque than the diesel equivalent, which results in increased traction and improved rough-terrain performance.

The electric motor is also 62% quieter.

With minimal battery and electrical system maintenance required, Snorkel says servicing costs are reduced by up to 93% when compared to a diesel engine, while also eliminating the costs and risks of waste oil and filter disposal. Less servicing also reduces the load on service engineers.

Matthew Elvin, CEO, Xtreme Manufacturing and Snorkel, sees the new model as "an exciting next step in our development of zero-emission alternatives to diesel".

"The compact and mid-size aerial lift and telehandler segment is a sweet spot for electrification, and our lithium-battery technology is proving to be a zero-compromise solution in this product category, delivering zero emissions, reduced noise and equivalent or better performance than the diesel," he adds.
The A46JRTE joins eight other lithium-powered Snorkel models, including the SL26RTE and SL30RTE electric Speed Levels, five rough-terrain scissor lifts, and the SR5719E/SR626E compact rough-terrain telehandler. Using the same lithium-ion battery pack solution as the other platforms in this family, the A46JRTE is fitted with three 111 Ah (5.75 kWh) lithium-ion battery packs.
