Kardie Equipment believes in the safety of our employees, customers and job space above all. Already the industry leader in high elevated work platforms, we have also pushed ourselves to be the industry leader in the highest level of safety. We promote, train and continuously encourage safety first. We have pushed our company to strive for continuous improvement year after year. Kardie Equipment maintains one of the highest safety records and EMR ratings within our industry and we work hard every day to ensure this culture continues to be at the forefront of all that we do.

The safety features of all of our Brontos have been optimized by continuous development, and tested in the toughest conditions of our customers. Standard safety features include:

  • Rigid work platform permanently attached to the telescopic boom to allow for safe operation in windy conditions (even at speeds of over 25 mph)
  • Two emergency descent systems
  • Bronto+ control system and easy overall maneuverability to enable smooth, accurate, and safe operation near structures and targets
  • Twin cylinders on the main boom to enhance sideways stability and safety, along with a shorter cylinder design to increase storage space on the decking
  • 15 minute setup time with just one operator and one spotter using the advanced outrigger and basket control panels

In addition to the Brontos themselves, Kardie takes safety to the next level by implementing the following:
