Whether you’re a safety manager or a worker who regularly uses a man lift truck, you know how important it is to make sure that all operators are safe—and that starts with using the best equipment the industry has to offer.

Cherry pickers, cranes, scissor lifts, and Genie lifts might perform the same tasks as a man lift, but they’re not as safe. In fact, cranes were designed to lift materials, not people, and as a result they’re not made with the safety requirements necessary to ensure a safe lift and return every time.

Brontos, on the other hand, are the safest man lifts that money can buy. And because safety is our number-one priority here at Kardie Equipment, we are proud to carry Bronto man lifts exclusively. Brontos have been continuously developed and time-tested in the most rigorous conditions. Because they have safely withstood such conditions, they’re the most reliable equipment on the market. IMG_5781

Smooth Movements Reduce Risks
  • Automatic basket leveling and smooth boom sleeve movements ensure no jerking or bumps while extending or retracting.
  • Multiple computer systems and sensors with pressure switches and smart components ensure smooth and accurate boom movements, unlike other man lifts that use old relay logic.
  • Easy overall maneuverability results in smoother operation.
Guaranteed Safety, Even in Windy Conditions
  • Rigid work platforms are permanently attached to the telescopic boom.
  • Bronto baskets can withstand winds up to 31 mph, allowing you to work longer and return to the ground faster with unpredictable weather.
  • An anemometer (wind speed indicator) mounted in the basket and alarm keeps
    operators alert.
Meets Rigorous Standards
  • Kardie Equipment holds one of the highest safety records and EMR ratings in the industry.
  • All Kardie Equipment operators receive advanced training (both in-classroom and
    on-site) to match or exceed criteria of Bronto Skylift. Training includes emergency procedures, troubleshooting tactics, and safe practices for operating and driving. 
  • Bronto equipment is fully certified by ANSI 92.2, the American National Standards Institute. This includes a comprehensive quarterly and annual inspection of each of
    our trucks for structural components and safety standards.
Training
  • All Kardie operators undergo virtual reality training via our Oculus VR headset.
    This ensures expert control and understanding of Brontos as well as preparation for potential emergency situations. 
Emergency Preparedness
  • Redundant backup operating systems and two emergency descent systems give
    peace of mind.
  • Bronto man lifts include emergency stop functions from the work platform, ground control, and outrigger control center.
  • Multiple backup battery systems ensure no crew member is ever stuck at height. 
  • Voice activated in-basket intercom allows the operators and workers in the basket to communicate with the ground personnel seamlessly.


ansi1The Safest Man Lift Models 

If your work site requires the use of a man lift rental, Kardie Equipment carries the safest models in the industry. The Bronto truck-mounted platform features extendable 7ft baskets —some up to 10 feet wide—for safer movement and more elbow room for workers or tools. Each Bronto model can power electric tools, water supplies, and pneumatic systems. They also feature voice-on-command intercom, a battery backup operation system, and a manual emergency bleed off system. All Brontos meet emissions regulations for all states, including California.
