SIMPLE AND EFFECTIVE SECONDARY GUARDING
• Simple, mechanical system – no complexity
• Easy to service & maintain – no electronics
• Operator can override the system if necessary
• Fitted as standard on new Snorkel booms
Designed by Snorkel’s in-house engineering team, the system features a spring-loaded rail mounted above the platform controls, which cuts-out machine operations when pressure is applied.
If the operator is able, they can restore power using the override switch in the platform. Alternatively, the ground controls can be used to lower the platform.
Snorkel Guard™ is fitted as standard on all new build Snorkel boom lifts with platform heights of 40 ft.
(12.1m) and above. A retrofit kit is available for most Snorkel booms in the field.
