Two Bronto aerial platforms delivered by Aspen Equipment30 April, 2021
Bronto Skylift’s distributor, Aspen Equipment, recently delivered two new aerial platforms to customers in California and South Dakota. Though based in Minnesota, Aspen’s build and delivery capabilities allow it to serve customers in many industries from around the country. Aspen Equipment has been a North American dealer for Bronto for nearly 22 years and currently operates as a distributor in 10 states (MN, IA, NE, SD, ND, MT, WY, ID, UT and CO) and has some exclusive customers beyond this territory as well.
The two recent deliveries include an SI197HDT insulated work platform and an S200XDT (S70XDT) aerial work platform. These Bronto models include key features designed to enable safe working access to overhead power lines. The S200XDT (S70XDT) is mounted on a Peterbuilt chassis and features a working height of 70 meters, horizontal outreach of 36 meters and a cage load of 700 kg. Optional equipment includes a detachable material handler in the working cage, a continuous 360-degree turntable rotation and a control centre in the turntable. The insulated SI197HDT is mounted on a TOR chassis, offers 60 meters of vertical reach and enables live-line work on energised powerlines up to 765 kV. Optional equipment includes a fibre optic intercom between the cage and the ground team, a hydraulic generator and preparedness for an insulator washer. Both units were mounted on their chassis in Bronto Skylift’s workshop in Orlando, Florida.
Jed Fischbach, Territory Manager at Aspen Equipment, worked extensively with the clients to ensure that the Bronto model they received would fit their needs for high-reach accessibility.
