Expansion in Australia: JM Tower Hire, a Melbourne-based aerial work site hire company, has gradually expanded its fleet to include several Bronto models.
Aerial work platforms are also known as “travel towers” and “cherry pickers” in Australia. JM Tower Hire offers access services across all industries – from telecommunications to window cleaning and sign installation. Founded in 2006 by owner Jim Mullins, nine employees serve customers across Victoria with aerial work platforms from 24m to 61m high.
The JM Tower Hire started with a 32 meter grid which was parked at the fire department. After a while, things continued to improve with the purchase of a 47-meter device. Due to the changing requirements regarding health and safety in the workplace and customer demand, the need for brand new equipment has arisen. That’s when JM Tower Hire turned to Bronto Skylift.
Six years ago JM Tower Hire bought their first Pronto platform. The company now operates a fleet including six vehicles Four protos with a working height of up to 61 meters.
“The vehicles are amazing and the customers love them. We’ve had many instances where our other machines didn’t have enough range or lateral access, so we had to switch them to Prontos – they’re always up to the task,” reports the owner. Jim Mullins. “Brontos are popular because of the lifting capacity of the baskets – the weight limit is high and the basket is extendable. Our customers are ideal for the basket operator, like two riggers and gear.
