Snorkel has announced that it has commenced the production of its new outdoor-rated push-around mini scissor lift - the S3210P - at its facility in the UK. Manchester and Carlisle-based access rental specialist, APL, has received the first eight units.

First shown as a prototype at CONEXPO-CON/AGG 2020, the S3210P is designed for low-level work at height in outdoor slab applications or indoor areas which have a wind loading, such as during the early phases of a construction build where windows or doors may not yet be installed.

At just 0.81m wide, the S3210P is an outdoor-rated version of the Snorkel S3010P push-around mini scissor, with a maximum working height of 5.0m, a lifting capacity of 240kg. In spite of such impressive dimensions, the unit yet weighs a mere 470kg.

Pleased at the recent purchase, APL Finance Director Phil Wong said: “Low level access continues to grow in popularity with various trades now preferring these units over traditional products such as ladders and scaffold towers. However, we have come across multiple occurrences where a push-around scissor lift would be the ideal piece of equipment for the job but we have not been able to specify them due to wind loads. We were excited to see Snorkel introduce this outdoor-rated version and expect them to become popular with our customers who span a wide range of industries.”
