New Truck-mounted Aerials Have 295' Working Height

TGM Wind Services of Abilene, Texas recently took delivery of two new Bronto Skylift Model S-90 HLA high level articulated truck-mounted aerials, the tallest aerial devices currently working in North America. Purchased primarily to inspect and maintain wind turbines and other tall structures, the 295' working height Bronto machines are able to drive directly to a turbine and, in a matter of minutes, be fully operational. These capabilities result in faster, safer and more accurate inspection and maintenance of turbine exteriors and blades at a lower cost than other methods currently in use.

The huge Bronto S-90 HLA machines have been used in Europe for many years and have been time-tested in the toughest conditions. When elevated, they can withstand winds speeds up to 25 mph and they can lift up to 1,000 lbs of men and materials in an 8' x 3', fully enclosed platform to a 295' maximum working height. Maximum horizontal outreach is 108'. Mounted on a 6-axle Kimball chassis, the Bronto S-90 HLA machines can navigate most terrain and easily reach remote tower locations.
