    This is so similar to the Bronto, that I am surprised Bronto did not sue for patent infringment.

    Has the T-Rex been used in Europe before coming here?

    It looks like a good alternative for thoes that dont want to buy a E-one.

    Is it not possible to but a bronto skylift in America without an E-one truck? Bad deal by Federal if it is that way. Either way, Metz is a part of Rosenbauer and does sell "hydraulic platforms" but not under the T-rex name. They are not by far as popular as Bronto. (perhaps not as good either?) Notable sells have been some refinery fire fighting trucks to the middle east.

    Bronto has had competetors for a long time, less than two hours drive from bronto is another company called Vema that makes the very similar products

    Did Rosenbauer buy out Simon from the UK??? The T-Rex looks very similar to the Simons. Also, is the water tower the old readi-tower from Boardman?

    meteoman,

    I believe that the Simon lift division was sold to Terex about the same time that LTI was sold to Freightliner.

    The water tower (I assume you're referring to the Roadrunner) is an RK design. At this point, it is only available to Rosenbauer, unlike other RK products which are available to other third party builders.
