Snorkel Aerial Work Platforms
Snorkel defines personal access as compact, portable lifts, generally designed to be used by one person and mainly for interior applications at heights under 40 feet. Low-level access is defined as machines under 12 feet platform height and weighing less than 1,800 lbs.
David Smith, President of Snorkel North America, said: "We believe that low level access will undergo major growth in North America, as more and more people swap podiums and stepladders for lightweight, compact aerial lifts. And when it comes to smaller, lighter, more agile machines for working at lower heights, Snorkel now has the best product portfolio in the industry."
Lightweight, compact lifts are a perfect fit with the 'Mom & Pop' rental store ethos; relatively low-cost lifts that deliver an excellent return on investment.
"Snorkel believes in providing the same level of support and service to a customer who buys one lift a year, as a customer who buys one thousand," added Smith.
Furthermore, Snorkel's partnership with Pop-Up is breaking new ground in North America. Pop-Up's award-winning range of push-around scissor lifts is now in wide use with global contractors working in the UK, with close to 6,000 units in the field. The majority of Pop-Ups are sold to rental companies, some of whom reported a return on investment in the first year of ownership. The benefits of using push-around mast lifts are already understood; the Pop-Up range brings the same safety and productivity benefits to lower level access.
All machines have Snorkel's key engineering principles at their core, ensuring low total ownership costs - robust, 'rental-tough' design; simple to use; simple and low cost to maintain:

The LiftPod by JLG
Portable aerial platform is powered by an 18-volt drill.
The LiftPod by JLG is the first personal and portable aerial work platform designed as an alternative to the ladder.
Powered with any common 18-volt cordless drill and easily transportable in the back of a van, pick-up truck or SUV, the LiftPod provides users a 360-degree range of motion and the ability to work with both hands at a working height of up to 14 feet.
The lightweight design and compact size of the LiftPod allow a single person to move it around on the work site with its non-marking polyurethane wheels.
It also can be assembled by one person in less than 30 seconds.
The LiftPod is operated with a typical 18-volt cordless drill or an optional power pack and a pair of two-hour quick-charge NiMH batteries to allow continuous work, with about 20 up-down cycles per battery.
The LiftPod weighs 145 pounds and consists of three main sections: the base, the mast and carriage, and the platform. The heavy-duty, powder-coated steel base’s castor mechanism locks when the LiftPod is in use and provides mobility when it is set up.
The mast consists of aircraft-quality aluminum, and the platform has a 330-pound capacity at maximum elevation. An attached work tray holds tools and materials, allowing LiftPod users to efficiently work with both hands.
