Utah, USA-based rental firm Bronson Crane has added three Igo T 85 As and an Igo T 70 to its fleet of 12 self erecting cranes as part of plans to replace every self-erecting crane in the fleet with Potain.

Earl Bronson, founder of the company, said he chose his latest four Igo cranes because of their dynamic hook heights, ease of roadability and extraordinary lifting capacities.

“We have rented, sold and serviced self erecting cranes in our area for more than decade,” he said. “We have been in the 21 m to 42 m range, but never had the opportunity for the reach, hook heights or capacities these Igo cranes are offering us.”

Bronson plans to rent the Igo cranes to companies in a range of industries, including contractors in masonry, steel erection, framing, concrete and general construction.

With the addition of the four Potains it recently purchased, the Bronson fleet now offers two HD 40s, four Igo 50s, three T 85 As, one T 70 and one Igo 42. A further five self erecting cranes will join the Bronson line-up in the near future.
