It’s the equipment that raises your crew to extreme heights—and that’s why it’s the most important machinery you’ll use at the worksite. If you’re looking for an aerial bucket truck to buy or rent and wondering which one will keep your team safe every time, you can’t go wrong with a Bronto Skylift from Kardie Equipment.

A Bronto Skylift is not your average aerial work platform. Finland-based Bronto Skylift has been manufacturing AWPs for more than 50 years; featuring top-tier engineering and innovative safety standards that have been continually developed and time-tested in the most rigorous conditions. It’s why countless industries, from construction to utilities to telecommunications and more, choose a Kardie Equipment Bronto Skylift to help get their work done.

Bronto Skylifts: The Most Reliable Aerial Bucket Trucks on the Market Today


Impressive mobility. Regardless of whether you’ll be doing your work indoors or outdoors, Bronto Skylifts make maneuvering simple. The telescopic boom allows operators to work in tight spaces and move the basket around obstacles to get to the exact spot they need to be. Plus, a Bronto Skylift can be driven off-road and won’t tip over on uneven surfaces.


Extreme reach. Some AWP models max out at a mere 165 feet. Bronto Skylifts, on the other hand, can reach heights of 295 feet, lifting workers higher than most other AWPs.


Horizontal reach. Moving your truck for better basket accomodation is unsafe and inefficient—and with the Bronto Skylift, you don’t have to. Unlike other AWPs, the Bronto Skylift has a 360 degree turntable rotation, with some models boasting a 131 foot horizontal reach and 50 feet below ground.


Speedy setup. Unlike scaffolding or crane and man baskets, which can take days or months to set up, a Bronto aerial bucket truck can be set up and ready to go in just 15 minutes—saving your business time and money.

Top-Tier Safety Standards to Keep You Protected

At Kardie Equipment, safety is our number-one priority. Because each unit in our fleet of Bronto Skylifts has passed the strictest standards of safety and efficiency, you and your workers will always have peace of mind on the worksite.

  • Designed to lift workers—not materials. With a Bronto Skylift, there’s no need for a critical lift plan. Because they are specifically designed to lift and protect people rather than materials, they are much safer than a crane with an attached man basket.
  • Operable in heavy winds. Each Bronto Skylift basket features a wind speed indicator with an alarm, which keeps operators alert and safe in winds up to 31 mph.
  • Emergency preparedness. With dual emergency descent systems, multiple backup operating systems, and a voice-activated basket-to-ground intercom system, Bronto Skylifts give you multiple layers of protection—even in the event of an emergency.
  • Smooth movements for a safer ride. With stabilizing outriggers, smooth boom movements, and automatic leveling, you won’t ever experience a shaky ride to the ground.
