Snorkel Elevating Platform Services have introduced the TM12 mast lift into the Snorkel range for North America earlier this year and have now launched the product for the Australasian market.
This compact, self-propelled mast lift is suitable for small spaces. Designed to drive through a standard doorway, the Snorkel TM12 has a tight inside turning radius of only 6in/37cm. With a maximum working height of 18ft/5.7m, it can still lift 500lb/227kg, enough for two people and their tools.
The first Snorkel TM12 manufactured at Snorkel Elevating Platform Services' New Zealand plant is now in operation at one of the vineyards. The award-winning Villa Maria Wines in Marlborough purchased the TM12 to “top off” the wine barrels, but the staff have found it invaluable for general maintenance jobs. Villa Maria Wines are now looking to deploy a second TM12 at their Auckland winery.
