What’s New at Bauma

Atlas Copco PACE to

portable compressors

Atlas Copco

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-

tion need.

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

stand at Bauma 2016.

The show featured Snorkel’s new mid-size telescopic

boom lift family, which is now in production and ready

to order.

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).
