The deal, which was negotiated by Snorkel’s Andrew Fishburn from a distance during the pandemic through a series of virtual meetings, product evaluations and research by the Boels-Cramo team, was completed in March and deliveries from Snorkel’s facility in the U.K. have now commenced.
The 354 units, which are custom-painted in Boels orange, were ultimately chosen for their outdoor-rating and the robust dual-coat custom-colour powder paint finish offered by Snorkel. They are being delivered rental-ready into Finland, Norway, Sweden, Estonia, and the Netherlands.
The TM12 was the original self-propelled telescopic mast lift introduced in the early 1990s, and remains a market-leading product today. Delivering a maximum working height of 5.6m, the Snorkel TM12 can lift a platform capacity of 227kg, yet weighs just 830kg. Measuring 0.76m wide, the compact Snorkel TM12 can easily pass through standard doorways and be carried in passenger elevators. A 0.5m roll-out extension deck and non-marking tyres come as standard.
The Boels-Cramo Group is one of the leading equipment rental solutions providers in Europe, with 750 depots in 18 countries, employing a total of 7,500 people.
Of the decision to invest in Snorkel TM12’s, Cramo Product Area Manager for Access Equipment, Jacobo Campos said, “Compact telescopic mast lifts are a very popular product type with our customers, so we took the time to evaluate the options. The Snorkel TM12 is the original, and with the upgrades that have been made to this design over the years, along with Snorkel’s unique dual-coat powder paint finish, we have selected a leading product for our fleet and our extensive customer base.”
Andrew Fishburn, Snorkel Vice President of Strategic Accounts – EMEA, added, “We are extremely proud to be supplying a market-leader with Snorkel TM12’s, and we thank Jacobo and the Boels-Cramo team for their consideration and the business.”
