First Bronto S38XDT for UK/Ireland

Ross Blasting and Elevation of Newry, County Down, Northern Ireland has taken delivery of the first 38 metre Bronto S38XDT in the UK.

The company, which is owned and operated by father and son team Peter and Joe Clerkin, started off in the sand blasting business after Clerkin senior, a crane operator for 30 years at Warren Point Harbour, left to 'do his own thing'.

Joe Clerkin has been the driving force behind the move into aerial lifts, buying his first second hand truck mounted lift when he was just 17. The company now specialises in renting truck mounts to the telecommunication industry along with more general work.

The new lift painted in silver and mounted on a two axle Scania truck, is the second Bronto in the Ross fleet, joining a 43 metre S43.
