Bronto will Display 295-ft. Aerial Lift at Windpower 2017

With a whopping 295 ft. of overhead reach, the Bronto S 295 HLA will be on display at the entrance to the American Wind Energy Association’s Windpower 2017 registration area in Anaheim, Calif., May 22 – 25, 2017. It is one of the largest machines available for tackling high-level access work on America’s wind farms.

Together, Bronto and its distributor TGM Wind Services will highlight the advantages of using aerial devices like the S 295 HLA (High Level Articulated) for safely and quickly accessing almost any exterior area on a turbine.

The Bronto Skylift S 295 HLA features a 295-ft. working height and 104 ft. of horizontal reach. With an overall weight of 110,300 pounds, it can be driven almost anywhere and is even expected to pass the stringent California permit requirements. Once on site, it is fully operational in a matter in minutes with only the touch of a button.

When elevated, the S 295 HLA can withstand winds speeds up to 28 mph and can lift up to 1,543 pounds of workers and materials in an extendable 12-ft. x 3-ft. fully enclosed platform.

Mounted on a Tor 12 x 6 rear-wheel steer chassis, the S 295 HLA displayed at AWEA will be delivered to TGM Wind Services after the show. With this addition, TGM will own 15 of these huge machines, along with other Bronto models featuring 230-ft., 173-ft., and 150-ft. working heights. All are available for rent with driver and operator.
