Balancing versatility with the Snorkel EPV16A Truck Mounted Boom.

What is most important to tree industry professionals up high is also what drives performance on the ground.

Balanced versatility is exactly what the Snorkel EPV16A truck mounted articulated boom lift delivers to the Australian market, from its highly manoeuvrable all steel boom design, to its compact travel dimensions.

Designed to easily reach up, over and around tall-standing trees, the Snorkel EPV16A can be elevated up to a maximum working height of 15.8m with an impressive horizontal outreach of 7.1m at a height of 7.75m. A 540° non-continuous turntable rotation allows for easy repositioning of the boom.

At the ground level, automatic hydraulic outriggers are fitted as standard to stabilize the vehicle-mounted work platform whileworking on uneven ground or other rough terrain. For improved safety, interlock switches are fitted on both the outriggers and the boom, and the EPV16A benefits from fail safe hydraulics with check valves, and a bleed down valve for emergency lowering of the platform, if required.

Like all Snorkel lifts, the EPV16A is designed to be simple, reliable and robust to deliver a low total cost of ownership and long working life. A high strength all-steel boom and base construction can withstand the demands of a wide range of arbor and landscaping applications, and 1.07m x 0.61m steel tri-entry platform can lift up to 200kg. Maintenance of the EPV16A is made simple with open centre live hydraulics and number coded wiring.

For ease of transportation, the all-steel boom lift has an overall width of 1.95m, overall length of 6.75m, and can be fitted to most 5500kg and greater GVM vehicles. This is ideal for street tree maintenance and other applications.

This high reach, low cost truck mounted articulated boom lift is built for versatility from any angle. The EPV16A truck mounted boom is available with a gasoline engine, or can be connected to a truck PTO. A low-voltage insulated boom option is also available, and the lift can be further customized with a range of extras, including an AC power and hydraulic outlets in the platform, airline to platform and flashing light.

The EPV16A was developed in Snorkel’s manufacturing facility in New Zealand, specifically for the Australian market. It is built to order to the highest quality standards and comes with a five-year structural warranty, plus a two-year warranty for parts and labour as standard, and is available from Ahern Australia.
