Bronto Skylift to Exhibit Truck-Mounted Aerials at ICUEE

From September 29 through October 1, Bronto Skylift will show and demonstrate their model SI-197 HDT insulated aerial and their new S-173 XDT with Bronto Skylift +4 operating system in Booth N2054 at ICUEE in Louisville, Ky.

Mounted on a TOR 8×6 all-wheel-steer chassis, the SI-197 HDT is an insulated aerial capable of bare-hand work on power lines up to 765 kV AC and 560 kV DC. It features a full 197 feet of working height and 1,000-pound capacity from its standard 6.5-foot-by-3-foot platform. Horizontal outreach is 72 feet and – with 360-degree continuous turntable rotation, push-button outrigger deployment and automatic outrigger leveling – it can be quickly and easily set up to reach overhead work areas almost anywhere. Setup time from the setting of the jacks to full elevation is under 15 minutes.

The heavy-duty S-173 XDT is mounted on a 6×6 Peterbilt chassis and features a 173-foot working height, a 100-foot horizontal outreach and a whopping 1,400-pound capacity in a standard platform of more than 23 square feet. The S-173 XDT at ICUEE will showcase the latest in Bronto’s computerized operating and maintenance technologies and introduce enhanced remote data collection capabilities.
