Dutch crane and access rental company Kraanverhuur Boekestijn has ordered its first truck mounted platform with a 56 metre Bronto Skylift S56XR.
Supplied by local distributor Kenbri, the S56XR features a four section boom topped by a two section articulated jib, offering up to 41 metres of outreach with 120kg or 37 metres with 360kg. Its maximum platform capacity of 600kg is available with an outreach of 33 metres.
Mounted on a three axle 26 tonne Scania P360 6×2*4 chassis, features include power to the 2.4 to 3.7 metre extendable platform, radio remote controls and a 400kg hydraulic platform winch. The unit will be used to work on transmission towers and to carry out inspections and maintenance applications within the industrial market.
Founded by Pieter Boekestijn in 1943, the company manufactured its own truck mounted crane in 1950 as it focused on vehicle recovery and continued to add cranes to its fleet over the years. Based in Maasland, the company now runs a fleet of 40 All Terrain, tower and crawler cranes, a transport and haulage fleet and a number of boom and scissor lifts.
