Founded in 1926, the company specialises in aerial platform, forklift and waste container rental and also provides scaffolding services across five of its 12 locations in Germany.

The order, which was placed at last years Bauma exhibition in Munich, includes the Bronto S56XR and Bronto S70XR aerial platforms.

The Bronto S56XR is a 56m platform with a maximum working outreach of up to 41m, while the Bronto S70XR offers a working height of 70m and outreach of 38m.

Paul Becker said the machines, which it is already distributing to customers, offer the “right solutions for large and demanding projects” and “complements” its existing fleet of work platforms.

The company said, “The range and height depending on the load and outrigger position are shown directly on the display of the control system, which means that a test approach to the position is no longer necessary. This saves time and enables particularly efficient work.”

As well as the order from Paul Becker, Bronto has also signed a deal with Swiss rental firm Maltech AG at Bauma for the S70XR and an S38XDT.
