What’s New at Bauma
Atlas Copco PACE to
is launching two multi-use portable com-
pressors featuring a PACE system (Pressure Adjusted
through Cognitive Electronics), which enables multiple
pressure and flow settings to precisely suit the applica-
The versatility of the XAVS 186 means a single com-
pressor, which can be set to operate anywhere between
7 and 14 bar, provides power for jobs that previously
would have required multiple machines.
Using the intuitive PACE system, the XATS 186 can
be set at intervals of 0.2 between 7 and 10 bar, while
the XAVS 186 can be customised in the same way be-
tween 7 and 14 bar.
As a result, users can accurately match air flow and
pressure to their needs with only one machine, whether
the compressor is used in abrasive blasting, quarrying,
construction drilling or powering handled tools.
Free air delivery ranges from 9.8 to11.4 m³/min for
the XATS 186 and 10.1 to 11.4 m³/min for the XAVS 186.
The 186 range extends the compressor oil service interval
to 1,000 hours or every two years, which helps maximise
uptime and minimise costs.
Both models incorporate Atlas Copco’s acclaimed air
element and a John Deere Stage IV engine. When cou-
pled with the PACE system, the end result is a compressor
that offers improved efficiency, reliability and durability
while keeping the total cost of ownership as low as
Being lightweight and compact, the 186 compressors
are easily towed and a number of towing accessories
are available as options.

Three from Snorkel
Snorkel launched three new global products on their

The show featured Snorkel’s new mid-size telescopic
boom lift family, which is now in production and ready
The company also displayed the largest model in the
family, the Snorkel 660SJ. The model delivers a 20.3 m
(66-ft) maximum platform height, with 18.0 m (58-ft 6-in)
maximum outreach and a lift capacity of 272kg (600 lbs.)
It is the largest model in the new family of four tel-
escopic boom lifts. The new booms feature Snorkels
quick-disconnect tri-entry platform and Snorkel Guard
secondary guarding system as standard.
The boom lifts have powerful constant four-wheel
drive, and also feature a fully proportional, open-loop
hydraulic system with all joystick controls.
New Electric Slab Scissor Lift
Snorkel showed two new additions to their electric slab
scissor lift family. The new S3215E and S3220E models
join the existing family of four hydraulic drive lifts.
The S3215E delivers a working height of 6.5 m (21 ft.)
and can lift up to 272 kg (600 lbs.). The S3220E delivers
a working height of 8.1 m (26 ft.), and a substantial lift
capacity of 408 kg (900 lbs.).
These models have been requested by European
customers, where there is a focus on higher
Snorkel has recently upgraded their scissor lift family
with the addition of proportional descent for more pre-
cise positioning when lowering the platform, as well as
a new easy-slide extension deck mechanism.
New Electric Drive TM12E
Another first on the stand was Snorkel’s new electric
drive version of the TM12 self-propelled telescopic mast
lift. Branded the TM12E, it will lift up to 227 kg (500 lbs.)
to a platform height of up to 3.65 m (12 ft.), and weighs
in at 840 kg (1,850 lbs).
