Norwegian rental company Drammen Lift Utleie has taken delivery of a new 70 metre Bronto Skylift S70XR truck mounted platform.
The platform is among the largest units in Norway and has been purchased to meet demand from the maintenance industry in Oslo, along with bridge construction, and maintenance work in the wind turbine and offshore oil industries.
The machine has been ordered complete with 400kg telescopic davit jib with hydraulic winch and stowage brackets that can be used to lift and mount glass and other panels without the additional cost of a crane or telehandler.
Mounted on a four axle Volvo FM 460 chassis it has a total weight of 32 tonnes. The maximum platform capacity is 700kg and maximum outreach 38 metres. It can also reach up seven metres below ground level. Once on site it can work off a 400 volt power source in order to avoid emissions, while reducing noise levels.
Tom Roger Delsbekk of Drammen Lift said: “We have seen greater demand for better environmental solutions and added a 400 volt power option for this unit, which means that the machine can be used without emissions while on site. We have invested heavily into vehicle mounted platforms with around 30 units, four of them dedicated to bridge work.
The company is based in Drammen south west of Oslo and also operates from locations in Kongsberg, Oslo and Vestfold. It runs a varied fleet of aerial work platforms, telehandlers, glass handling robots and other equipment.
