    Default Snorkel Parts

    Anybody have information on where to obtain parts for a mid 80's 85' Snorkel
    (Heat shields for the platform and the boot for the platform controls).

    As far as I know, ALF still owns the Snorkel brand. They don't seem to have any reference to the Snorkel itself on their site, but I'd give them a try.

    The parts have to be out there, because you still see a refurbed Snorkel put on a new chassis every once in a while.

    Good luck.

    We have a 1985 Snorkel that we are getting rid of if you are interested. It is going out on Monday for re-certification.

    How about 2? We are getting rid of a 75' Snorkle. The boom is from 1963 (and has been refurbed once or twice) and the chassis is Pierce from 1990.

    Replacement is a 100' Pierce Dash Tower Ladder due end of March/beginning of April. Snorkle was a bad idea for us back in 1963 due to trees/powerlines/setbacks/etc. It simply does not function for us. Unfortunately, it took way too many years for smarter heads to prevail and get something that has a useable reach.

    The Seagrave pumper that is new is for the next town over, Point Pleasant. It is at Station 41, Point Pleasant Fire Company #2. They are happy with it so far.

    We are replacing our 85' with a new 2005 Pierce 95' Mid-mount. As Bones said the Snorkel was not the right choice for our department. Although it worked good for us sometimes, most of the times it just could not reach the building.

    The new truck is very nice and should be going into service on Monday, we are just finalizing equipment placement.

    Attached is a picture of the truck we are getting rid of.

    Default 85 Snorkle

    Your 85 E-One/Snorkle looks brand new. Has it been refurbed?

    The snorkel was refurbed in 1991/1992. That pic is like 2 years old but it still looks the same.

    I'll try to drag your subject back on track... we had a '77 Snorkel, when the heat shields went on that we removed the snaps and had thin stainless bent and mounted, looked and worked much better. The boot you may be able to get done by a local vehicle upholstery shop.
