Bronto Skylfit’s Bronto+ control system is being upgraded to its fifth generation.

For operators this means faster leveling, easier control of working lights, light groups and cage load, bigger displays with better visibility even in sunlight, easier navigation, more chassis information available on screens, integrated help texts and quick manuals, as well as resistive touch screens.

One of the important features enabled by the Bronto5+ is Bronto’s fleet management tool Skyliftfleet. Units will send all operational data to the Skyliftfleet portal, where owners, operators, fleet managers and service can easily check and optimize daily usage, performance and plan preventive maintenance cycles. As the units traditionally have a long lifespan and multiple owners, it is a crucial safety factor that the service history is transparent throughout the lifecycle. Skyliftfleet stores the service history in one place. Also all important manuals and other information about each unit is stored in Skyliftfleet for easy access. The location of each unit can also be tracked in real time.

The remote service capabilities will remain the same. Service personnel can log on to the unit and do various fault finding, calibration and other tasks as before.

The HLA range ensures efficient and safe high-rise rescue and firefighting, as well as industrial operations with extremely challenging high-rise installations like wind turbines. This range includes the world’s highest truck-mounted access platforms. Due to the latest update they are better equipped to serve and respond to modern day demands.
