marcel do you know to which height can go this ladder platform

Added by J. J. on 05 December 2007.
Hi J.J., it's a Bronto Skylift F27 HDT, so it can reach a height of 27 metres and has a maximum outreach of 17 metres.

I never heard for angloco aerial platforms (in Croatia we don't have it)... in your opinion are they better than magirus or rosenbauer?!

Added by J.J. on 08 December 2007.
J.j., angloco are a body-builder: they build fire appliances. In the uk, angloco have the exclusive rights to import brontos from finland, and therefore build all the brontos that go into service with uk fire brigades on various chassis.
