This truck features the newest configuration of a Bronto Skylift in North America, the F135RLX, featuring an industry leading 135’ of vertical reach. It also includes an all new platform design that is larger with walk-through front double gates and an integrated front deck for enhanced rescue operations.

Other key features of Manchester’s E-ONE Bronto Skylift F135RLX include:

  • Articulating boom design with up-and-over rescue capability and below ground level reach of 15’
  • Up to 88' of horizontal reach
  • Variable jacking (operational envelope will adjust based on the amount each outrigger is extended)

“The RLX family of aerials is a proven product for Bronto Skylift outside of North America. As done with the F116RLP, we worked closely with Bronto engineering to develop the new F135RLX articulating platform for North American applications,” said Joe Hedges, E-ONE Product Manager. “A majority of the collaboration with Bronto centered around designing a versatile platform with a wide walk-through front gate.”

This marks the third E-ONE Bronto for Manchester over the last 20 years. And it’s the second of two Bronto Skylift aerials recently delivered to E-ONE customers. Miami Dade Fire Rescue recently took delivery of an E-ONE Bronto F116RLP+, featuring 116’ vertical reach, up to 87’ horizontal reach, variable jacking, 1500 GPM waterway flow, 2000 GPM pump, 300 gallon water tank and SideStacker® hose bed.
