A 70-metre aerial platform for Freo Group6 October, 2021
Freo Group, an Australian crane rental and logistics solutions company that manages a large fleet of various cranes, has taken delivery of a 70-metre Bronto S70XR aerial platform. The unit will join their extensive fleet alongside two existing S70XDT aerial platforms that Freo have in the Bowen Basin mining region of Queensland.
The S70XR aerial platform is mounted on a Scania P410 8×8 chassis and features a total weight of around 36 tons, a maximum working height of 70 metres, an outreach of 38 metres and is equipped with Wireless Radio Remote Controls for boom movements, a 600 kg extendable cage with 2×220° cage rotation, a Bronto Sky-Jib to help get into those tight spaces and 240/415v hydraulic generator.
The working cage can be extended up to 3.7 metres wide to allow more space for men and material and the 220-degree rotation on both sides increases operational flexibility. In addition, the Freo Group have added a Bronto Loadman Falling Weight Deflectometer to provide peace of mind on the bearing capacity of the area to where setup takes place.
The new aerial platform is a great addition to the Freo Group’s rental range, as it will increase the variety of the machinery they can offer to customers.
