Aspen Equipment delivers two new Brontos
By Lindsey Anderson03 May 2021
Bronto Skylift’s distributor Aspen Equipment recently delivered two new mobile elevating work platforms to customers in California and South Dakota.
The two deliveries include a SI197HDT insulated work platform and a S200XDT mobile elevating work platform. The models include key features designed to enable safe working access to overhead power lines. The S200XDT is mounted on a Peterbuilt chassis and features a working height of 200 feet, horizontal outreach of 121 feet and a cage load of 1,500 pounds. Optional equipment includes a detachable material handler in the working cage, a continuous 360-degree turntable rotation and a control center in the turntable.
The insulated SI197HDT is mounted on a TOR chassis, offers 197 feet of vertical reach and enables live-line work on energized powerlines up to 765 kV. Optional equipment includes a fiber 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, FL.
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. “We are happy to be the one-stop source for the best and tallest aerials available in North America for our customers,” he said.
Aspen Equipment has been a North American dealer for Bronto for nearly 22 years and currently operates as a distributor in 10 states.
