UK based rental company AA Access has ordered a 70 metre Bronto Skylift S70XR truck mounted platform, due to be delivered in May.
Launched last April, the S70XR provides an outreach of 36 metres and a maximum capacity of 600kg. Overall length of the machine is under 12 metres, allowing it to have EU Whole Vehicle Type Approval.
The unit is expected to spend a large amount of its time working in the film industry, and has been ordered with a rotating camera cage, an extendable cage with a camera pod and a lighting rig. Also included are remote controls and an 1,100kg boom mounted winch.
AA Access owner Andy Ainsworth said: “The 70XR is required as a replacement for our 70XDT, because we like to keep up with the latest technological advances and keep our fleet as young as possible. We like the compact size of the unit, the excellent working range, the control system and the fact it is Type approved as per the latest European regulations.”
“We like the overall after sales service package from Bronto where the combination of their service partner CPS in the UK, the remote diagnostics and commitment from the senior management at the factory is in our opinion, second to none and a winner.”
