COMPACT DESIGN WITH MAXIMUM MANEUVERABILITY.
The Snorkel® Articulating Boom Platform revolutionized firefighting as the first elevated firefighting platform. The box-section boom design provides torsional rigidity for superior strength and steady aerial maneuvers with a rock solid platform for firefighting and rescue operations. Throughout decades of reliable service, the Snorkel has undergone numerous design enhancements continuing to build upon the tradition and meet new market demands.
Today, the Snorkel® provides excellent fire ground maneuverability, articulating boom mobility for firefighting and rescue operations, and operator-friendly controls. The 55’ model offers the articulating boom with unrestricted 750 lb dry platform rating and a full 500 lb platform rating while flowing 1,000 GPM of water, and can be mounted on a short-wheelbase truck at an overall height of 11’4”.
