Crane specialist invests in first Bronto
By Leila Steed03 June 2021
Kraanverhuur Boekestijn, a crane rental company based in Maasland in the Netherlands, has introduced its first truck mounted aerial work platform to its equipment fleet.
The idea is to expand the range of services on offer to customers. Family-run Boekestijn, which has more than 70 employees and operates a fleet of more than 40 cranes, chose the S56XR truck mount from Bronto Skylift.
Mounted on a Scania P360 6×2*4 chassis-cab rigid truck, the S56XR has a working height of 56 metres and a maximum outreach of 37 metres. All-up weight is 26 tonnes.
Due to be delivered by the third quarter of 2021, the new machine will enable the company to provide additional services to the telecommunication and industrial sectors, where there is growing demand for inspection and maintenance applications and for transmission tower work.
The model is part of Bronto’s S-XR range and has a 600kg capacity working cage that includes fitted power sockets. The cage can also be extended up to 3.7 metres wide, to provide workers with more space to move about and for materials.
Kraanverhuur Boekestijn’s new truck mount also has a radio remote control for boom movements and a 400kg capacity hydraulic cage winch.
Lianne Boekestijn, Kraanverhuur Boekestijn, said, “It is an ideal aerial platform to carry out work high, far and low, safely and efficiently.”
