Hinkel Equipment Rental Associates has added a 200’ Bronto unit to its fleet, bringing the total to 12 units.  This machine joins a fleet comprised of units in five different sizes, ranging from 111’ to 200’.

The Bronto is mounted on an all-wheel drive International chassis and features automatic outrigger leveling and redundant safety features.  With a working height of 200 ft, it is one of the tallest truck-mounted aerials available in the United States.

Hinkel Equipment Rentals offers these machines for a variety of uses, including transmission line maintenance, building and bridge inspection, movie and TV production, and wind farm maintenance.  Previous customers include public utility companies and transmission line contractors. 

The new Bronto was demonstrated on behalf of Bronto Skylift at the Electric Utility Fleet Managers Conference (EUFMC) in Williamsburg, Virginia, on June 21-24, 2009.
