The S2770RTE Rough-Terrain Scissor Lift

Sponsored Article by Snorkel

The S2770RTE rough-terrain scissor lift features excellent maneuverability and lightweight, compact design in a 4-wheel-drive machine and is powered by lithium-ion batteries for a long-lasting and quiet performance.

Snorkel has established itself as a leader in the movement towards carbon reduction. The well-known construction equipment manufacturer’s line of electric high-reach equipment has grown steadily as they’ve continued to work towards the goal of net-zero emissions. Snorkel is one of the only manufacturers to carry a full range of lithium-ion-battery-powered aerial lifts and telehandlers. The clean and quiet alternative to diesel delivers zero emissions and zero maintenance with the performance of a diesel machine.

The S2770RTE is part of Snorkel’s electric high-reach scissor lift line, which is powered by lithium-ion batteries that achieve a 93% reduction in service costs as they don’t require the oil and filter changes and occasional repairs of a diesel engine. And no engine fan means 62% reduced noise and dust generation for an environmentally-friendly operation. Combined with non-marking tires and a slim profile, this makes the S2770RTE the perfect machine for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Lithium-ion batteries have many features that make them superior to lead acid batteries, including higher energy density, higher efficiency and longer life span. Both the battery pack and electric motor on lithium-ion battery-powered Snorkel machines are maintenance-free, saving significant time on the job as well as delivering a low overall cost of ownership. While both battery types offer a clean alternative to diesel, lithium-ion batteries are the superior choice for long-term usage and cost savings.

A lithium electric rough-terrain Snorkel scissor lift can last longer than a lead acid battery model before needing to be recharged. Depending on speed and amount of usage, an electric model
could stay charged and be operated for up to one work week between charges. Lithium-ion batteries can be fully charged in five to eight hours to maximize productivity and be top-up charged as needed. The total life of the battery under normal conditions is eight to ten years, and Snorkel offers zero-cost battery disposal at the end of the battery’s first life.

The S2770RTE sacrifices nothing to achieve zero emissions. Compact for versatility, this machine can get into slim working spaces that would be difficult for larger models with its slender 27-inch-wide platform. Rugged 4-wheel drive makes easy work on tough terrain and gets you where you need to go, while the hydraulic stabilizers contribute to a safer working environment on uneven surfaces.

As the demand for greener options continues, Snorkel will continue to add reliable, durable and versatile equipment to its line of electric aerial lifts and telehandlers.
