Greek crane rental company Chrysanthopoulos Cranes has taken a delivery of a 90 metre Bronto S90HLA truck mounted platform, the largest truck mount in the country.
Joining a 62 metre S62MDT and a 70 metre S70MDT in theChrysanthopoulos fleet, the S90HLA is a refurbished unit supplied by Bronto’s Spanish distributor, LKW Lift Ibérica. The S90HLA was originally built in 2008 and is mounted on a MAN TGA 10×4 chassis and features 32 metres of outreach, a 440kg platform capacity and an extendable platform with a width of up to 3.8 metres. It also incorporates an integrated 200bar water/airline, as well as hydraulic outlets. In total, there are around 50 Bronto platforms in the country spread between rental fleets and fire departments.
Chief executive Konstantinos Chrysanthopoulos, said: “Our story with the first Bronto aerial platform began back in 2012 and with our new purchase of Bronto S90 HLA, it consolidates our position in the field of work at height in renewables and other industries as well. Bronto Skylift is the leader in the market of hydraulic platforms providing safe and efficient solutions and we are very delighted that we have found a partner we can rely on. And that is our aspiration, to continue on it.”
The company was established in 1950 by mountaineer Vassilios Th. Chrysanthopoulos as a one man band metalworks business/blacksmith. He purchased his first crane in 1979 to create the modern company specialising in lifting and transportation services. It is now managed by his sons who also work with a third generation of the family.
