Finland-based Bronto Skylift will extend its XR truck mount range when it launches a 47 m model at APEX in June.

The S 47 XR will follow on from the first two models in the XR range; the S 56 XR and S 65 XR launched at bauma last year, and are an evolution of Bronto’s longstanding XDT range.

As well as a 47 m working height, the model will include a 28 m outreach and cage capacity of 700 kg. Transport height is 3.6 m, while transport length is 9.9 m. The boom has a 540 degree rotation, while the cage is capable of 2 x 90 degree rotation.

The XR range shares a number of features, including 20% more working height than previous models, 15% additional outreach and 35% extra working envelope. They also provide 15 m up and over capabilities, independent movement of the manufacturer’s Sky-Jib and its B+ Geometric Control system which ensures accurate and safe control in all conditions.

“There was a clear demand for machines which could do more for less: reach higher and further and yet reduce the costs and increase the profits of the customer,” said a company spokesman, “All this meant focusing on the running costs of the machines and resulted in a completely new design with less weight, lower fuel consumption and more envelope coverage per GVW tonne. It’s called XR range - machines with eXtreme Reach.”
