Workers from countless different industries use a truck-mounted aerial lift as a regular part of their workday. It’s not just the Renewable Wind Energy, Transmission and Distribution (T&D), Energy (Oil & Gas), and Construction industries that need to reach tall heights. Workers in the fields of Telecommunications, Entertainment, Aerospace and Aviation and even Marine and Ports rely on a truck-mounted aerial platform to make their jobs easier.
But when you’re that high up in the air, your life is on the line, so not every truck-mounted aerial work platform will do. You need a truck-mounted boom lift that has passed the strictest standards of safety and efficiency.
Kardie Equipment is the global market leader in truck-mounted boom lifts at heights of 150 feet and above. Each truck-mounted man lift we offer is manufactured by Bronto Skylift and has been specifically built to meet all North American DOT regulations, ANSI 92.2 standards, and OSHA requirements. We’re proud of the fact that Kardie Equipment holds one of the highest safety records and EMR ratings within the industry.
No matter what height you need to reach, we’ll get you there safely and efficiently with the best truck-mounted lifts and platforms in the industry.
Why Use a Bronto for Your Aerial Work Platform?
Bucket trucks and cherry pickers are routinely used among workers in various industries, but they’re not the safest option for the job. At Kardie Equipment, our mission is to ensure that our customers have the safest and most efficient truck-mounted AWPs in the industry—and that’s why we use Bronto Skylifts. Here’s why the Bronto is a better alternative to other man lifts.
- They’re reliable. You can count on Brontos because they were built to last for 20+ years.
You don’t have to worry about wasting time at the job sitebecause Kardie performs regular inspections
and maintenance. If an issue ever arises, we can immediately remote into the machine and diagnose
the problem. A repair person will arrive at your jobsite to fix the issue as quickly as possible.
- They’re safe. Cranes are designed to lift materials, not people. When you attach a man-basket
to a crane, it increases the risk of serious injury. However, the Bronto Skylift was designed specifically
to carry and support people, which makes it a much safer option. With smooth boom movements and automatic leveling, you won’t ever experience a shaky ride to the ground.
- You can operate them in strong winds. Other methods of access don’t provide the stability you need
to perform your work safely. Bronto baskets can withstand winds up to 31 mph, so you’ll be safe and
can avoid unnecessary downtime.
- Backup batteries will give you peace of mind. What if a crew member forgets to fill the diesel tank?
No problem at all. Kardie’s truck-mounted platforms feature a multi-battery backup system,
so no one will find themselves stuck in the air.
- They’re efficient. Unlike crane and man baskets or scissor lifts, Bronto AWPs can be set up in minutes, which gives you more time to get the job done. You can also drive them to and from work sites, unlike
Genie lifts and scissor lifts, which aren’t truck-mounted. They’re also off-road friendly and won’t tip over
on uneven surfaces.
