Logistics and safety equipment rental company Assam Bombay Carriers has added another 70 m Bronto Skylift truck mount to its rental fleet.

The India-based company said that the country was seeing an increase in high rise buildings.

Mr. Praveen Sharma, Managing Director at Assam Bombay Carriers, said We see a strong potential for bigger aerial platforms in India.”

“The safety awareness in India has increased a lot in past years. We as well as our customers attach great importance to quality and safety. We chose Bronto Skylift for its excellent product quality, value first and quick delivery time.”

While this is the second S70XDT truckmounted aerial platform the company has invested in, it is the first Bronto aerial platform to be mounted onto a locally manufactured chassis in the country. 

Originally shipped installed on 4 axle Volvo truck, the Bronto Skylift model was then taken to the manufacturer’s official dealer Brijbasi Hi-Tech where it was dismantled and reinstalled on a 5 axle Bharat-Benz.

Antti Suoniemi, Access Sales Director, Bronto Skylift, said, “Brijbasi is very proud to have the opportunity to mount such big Bronto units at our works in India. It is a big confidence build up for us. Bronto’s support and technical cooperation has been outstanding, enabling us to upgrade our team of engineers and sales.” 

The Bronto dealership, which is said to have had vast experience of Bronto platforms in India in the fire and rescue sector, also equipped the unit with an extendable working cage and power supply outlets in the cage.
