News Release 07/18/2018 – Change is on the horizon for Paxton-Mitchell Co., LLC

Blair, NE – July 18th, 2018
News Release:
Paxton-Mitchell Co., LLC. announced today that there has been a change in ownership. Paxton-Mitchell Co., LLC. was initially incorporated in 1901, and built a solid reputation by designing and manufacturing the world’s first Underbridge Inspection bucket truck in 1964. It was appropriately named the Paxton-Mitchell Snooper Truck. The word “SNOOPER” is a registered trademark of the Paxton-Mitchell Co., LLC.
Leading the Paxton-Mitchell team in Blair Nebraska is the General Manager, Mark Pfeffer, the Senior Engineer, Joe Craig, Mechanical Design/Project Engineer, Jared Evers, and National Sales Director, Brandon Greer.
Change is on the horizon for Paxton-Mitchell. For over five decades the Paxton-Mitchell Snooper Truck has been the most recognized name in Underbridge Inspection Trucks. Now, there are plans to debut a brand new Snooper Truck in the fourth quarter of 2018. The Snooper PM 264 features a 64 ft. horizontal reach, a dual-side deployment; it can reach over a 14 ft sidewalk, a 12 ft fence, an extendable fourth boom, and moreover, it does not have outriggers.
The Paxton-Mitchell website has also been under re-construction. According to Maria Carpio, the Director of Marketing for Paxton-Mitchell Co., LLC, “The new and fresh look for the Paxton-Mitchell website highlights and creates value and responsive resources across all platforms to provide informative and relevant customer support, training, and preventative maintenance for all Snooper Trucks.” The website is live today.
Mark Pfeffer-General Manager has been with Paxton-Mitchell for over three decades. He stated, “I am very impressed with the direction we are taking the Snooper product line. We are taking the Snooper, an excellent product, and making it better. Today’s bridges have new challenges, such as broader pedestrian walkways or fences on a bridge deck. The Snooper PM 264 still has the longest first boom in the industry to reach over pedestrian walkways or fences.”
Paxton-Mitchell Co., LLC., will be an exhibitor at the upcoming Equipment Fleet Management 2018 National Conference at the Connecticut Convention Center from July 30 through August 2, 2018. The event will be attended by highway equipment fleet managers, administrators, directors, engineers from the state, local, and federal governments, representatives from the highway maintenance and equipment industry, academic and research participants, and members from the AASHTO and the TRB. This will be Paxton-Mitchell’s second consecutive year exhibiting at the conference. You can visit the Paxton-Mitchell team at booth No. 923.

Schedule your Paxton-Mitchell Snooper Truck Annual Inspection Today

The Paxton-Mitchell Snooper Truck Annual Inspection is an essential and required function.

An annual inspection or yearly inspection consists of an operational, visual and somewhat mechanic inspection of the Snooper Truck unit without having to disassemble it. This is done on an annual basis in addition to daily, weekly, monthly, three-month, and 6-month maintenance as outlined in the Snooper Owners Manuals.

Under ANSI Regulation A92.8-1993, inspections are performed using a checklist created by the manufacturer. These records must be retained. Bolts must be torqued to specification. Pins, bushings, hydraulic lines and electrical circuits must be checked. The booms are looked over and checked for cracks in the welds. The Paxton-Mitchell Snooper Truck Annual Inspection must be performed by a qualified technician authorized by Paxton-Mitchell Co., LLC.
