Boom logistics operates one of the worlds largest fleet of Bronto travel towers

Bronto Skylift has been the major supplier of mobile elevated work platforms (MEWPs) to Boom Logistics since 2004. The latest expression of this long-term collaboration is the current delivery of eight state-of-the-art MEWPs to Boom Logistic’s rental fleet.

To be the trusted supplier to Boom Logistics since 2004 is of major importance to Bronto Skylift and the relationship between two industry leading companies is highly regarded.

“We look forward to an ongoing partnership and developing appreciation of Boom Logistics’ needs in the years ahead. We are now in the final stages of delivering an eight-unit order of S56XR and S70XR units mounted on Next Generation Scania P450 XT 8×8 chassis,” said Bronto Skylift Aust/NZ regional manager Trevor Wing.

Bronto Skylift Aust/NZ is a sales, training and technical support office for Finland-based manufacturer Bronto Skylift. The association dates back to 1992. Since then, Bronto Skylift Aust/NZ has supplied more than 220 Brontos to the MEWP hire industry and fire services in Australia and New Zealand. Heights of the supplied MEWPs range from 17 metres through to 101m.

“We are now supplying our new range of S-XR models to a growing number of hire companies. Recent additions to our customers fleets include MEWPs from 47 to 101m. The 104m S104HLA is in the final design stages to be the largest road legal MEWP in Australia,” continued Wing.

All Boom Logistic’s new aerials feature an advanced fifth generation Bronto 5+ control system, 600kg extendable cages, 360-degree turntable rotation, long outriggers for enhanced levelling capability, and world leading stability, even at great heights.

The well-known Bronto 5+ control system is based on strict calculations and stability parameters. Thus, it safely guarantees maximum outreach in any situation. It provides smooth, safe and very accurate movements even in most severe operating conditions. Additional functionality can be achieved when combined with the wireless remote

control, which utilises an onboard wireless network paired to a tablet, allowing the operator to have a mobile control station from anywhere within range. 

All units also come with the updated simultaneous levelling, which enables faster and easier levelling when all four outriggers level simultaneously instead of going two by two.

Another new feature is the large cage rotation that allows the cage to be rotated 2 x 220 degrees.

A variety of material handling options are also included, from a 200kg cage

mounted winch to the 1,300kg boom winch – all monitored live via the load cells connected to Bronto 5+ to ensure safety at all times.

All Bronto units are designed by strict safety standards and the heart of operational safety is the Bronto 5+ control system. In addition to those things mentioned above, the units are equipped with ground pressure measurement, collision guard sensors, and a crushing hazard protection at the cage control centre.

“An expanded network of qualified service providers nationwide, along with the technical expertise of our resident trainer, enables the best possible support to keep the units on the road and keep them 110 per cent safe,” said Wing.
