Designed for Underbridge Access Inspections, and Bridge Maintenance Work.
The first boom provides a minimum of 19' horizontal reach and rotates hydraulically 360°, allowing operation from either side of the truck. The tilt above horizontal is 40 degrees, -below- 20 degrees - which will allow placement of booms over fences a minimum of 10' in height.
The second boom hydraulically telescopes from 18' to 29', extending downward, enabling the basket or platform boom to be positioned horizontally under girders 25' below a bridge deck.
The third boom hydraulically telescopes from 22' to 34' pin to pin.
The Snooper Series 260 is available in either Basket (600 lbs. load capacity) or Platform (600 lbs. load capacity) configurations.
Basket Boom- The fourth or basket boom telescopes from 7' to 9'6" and it is pin mounted to the outboard end of the third boom. A metal basket 60" long X 36" wide X 42" deep, with a minimum capacity of 600 lbs. mounted at the boom tip. Tilting the boom upward from horizontal through 90 degrees will position the basket on the backside of girders, with the top of the basket 9'9" above the third boom. Scoping and articulation of booms will enable horizontal extension from the outer edge of the bridge deck under and across up to 60'0", from the centerline of the second turret 64'0". With booms tilted downward, the vertical reach is approximately 70' below a bridge deck. Overhead capabilities will allow positioning basket 48' above grade with the second boom above ground level.
Platform Boom- The fourth or platform boom includes a hydraulically self-leveling steel work platform, with a minimum capacity of 600 lbs., mounted to the outboard end of the third boom. The platform is 24" wide, include guard rail 42" high, and be hydraulically extendible boom 7' to 12'. Personnel is to be able to enter the platform on the bridge deck and ride it to working positions. Hydraulic articulation, combined with rotating and scoping of booms, will enable horizontal extension from the edge of bridge deck under and across up to 60'0", from the centerline of the second turret - 64'0". With boom tilted downward, the vertical reach shall be approximately 57' below a bridge deck.
70' Below Bridge Extension • Telescoping 2nd Boom from 18' to 29' • 48' Above Grade Extension • Telescoping Hydraulic Basket Boom
Operates in One Lane
The Snooper Series 260 requires only 10' with stabilizer down, less than one lane traffic. The total vehicle weight is 77,200 lbs., and front axle will not exceed 20K lbs. (platform) or 20K lbs. (basket). Rear tandem, 44K lbs.
360 Degrees Inspection
The 360 degrees turn capability allows the Snooper Series 260 to be operated from either side of the truck.
All components are brand name, American-made, manufactured and assembled in the United States.
Compliant with ANSI A92.8-1993 for Vehicle-Mounted Bridge Inspection and Maintenance Devices
