Snorkel Reveals World’s Largest Boom Lift at Conexpo

Snorkel breaks boom lift record with their new 2100SJ

Snorkel is setting a new standard with the upcoming launch of the world’s largest self-propelled boom lift.

Dubbed the ‘Mega Boom’, the Snorkel 2100SJ telescopic boom reaches to a staggering 64m (210ft), provides an industry-leading horizontal outreach of up to 30.3m (100ft), and an unrestricted platform capacity of 300kg.

A 9.1m jib boom, with a working arc of -55° to +73°, combined with 150° rotation of the 2.4m x 0.9m tri-entry platform provides enhanced access and flexibility at height.

Designed in-house by Snorkel’s engineering team, the 2100SJ features a number of patent pending innovations, and a significantly increased working envelope over the current industry standard.

Equipped with five steering modes, and with a stowed transport width of just 2.5m, the Snorkel 2100SJ has been designed for ease of transportation and manoeuvrability on the jobsite.


Here at APL, we’re at the forefront of driving innovation and so have already registered our interest in this revolutionary new boom. Check out what Snorkel Project Manager, Ryan Sobotka had to say at CONEXPO to our MD, Jason Seddon..

Snorkel have also produced this short video below outlining the different stages that took place in bringing this design into the real world…

COVID – 19

Here at APL/APC we are committed to safety and are actively doing our part to reduce the chances of COVID-19 spreading. Whilst we employ a number of these practices anyway, we are taking extra care that all of our staff follow them.

Upon returning to our HQ, each machine is thoroughly cleaned with G101 multi purpose cleaner and extra attention is taken on high risk areas of the machine such as keypads and control boxes using special Biocidal cleaner.

All of our drivers have been given special disinfectant wipes and cleaning supplies to keep their trucks clean and reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

We are also disinfecting our offices daily and have adopted many safeguarding techniques including keeping a 2m distance between any two people at one time.
