TGM buys third 90m Bronto
TGM Wind Services of Abelene, Texas has purchased its third 90 metre Bronto Skylift S-90 HLA truck-mounted lift and, according to vice president Kevin Darby, the company plans to order two additional machines for delivery in mid-2011.
The Bronto S 90 HLA has a platform capacity of 454kgs with up to 33 metres of outreach. The lifts can reach the critical access points on on most turbines currently operating in North America as well as high rise buildings.
The Brontos are mounted on a six axle Kimball chassis, which can cover most terrain to reach remote tower locations for wind turbine inspection and repair.

TGM has purchased its Brontos with electrical, pneumatic, hydraulic and water lines running from the ground to the platform inside the boom, in order to operate powered tools and washers in the platform.
Darby said: “Our experience in operating Bronto aerials has been overwhelmingly positive. We are able to do more work in less time and give better service to our customers, while at the same time providing our technicians a safer work environment. And we haven’t had any operating problems with the equipment. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.”
