When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, machinery and equipment, articulating man lifts are the perfect option. These machines are capable of reaching elevated areas that are not easily accessed by a telescopic or straight boom lift.
What Is an Articulated Boom Lift?
A cherry picker or an articulated boom lift is a hydraulically powered lift that is used to reach the hard to access, high places above ground level. An articulated boom lift is controlled by the operator from a panel that is located in the bucket.
The articulated boom parts enable the equipment to travel in various directions. For instance, a boom lift is capable of traveling both vertically and horizontally, as opposed to a scissor lift, that only has vertical travel capability. The boom lift is able to easily reach over large obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is supported by and attached to a grounded vehicle.
Boom lifts are often utilized by window fitters and construction crews who need a stable and strong platform on which to stand when doing work on the outside of a building. Tree surgeons and lamppost engineers as well as firefighters regularly utilize boom lifts.
Specialty lift manufacturers offer a variety of models for boom lifts. These machinery are also offered for short-term use from companies who rent industrial machines. Electric Man lifts are mainly used on indoor applications and slab. Their narrow chassis design offers easy access in tight areas. The Engine-Drive Man lifts offer 2 different fuel options. These include diesel fuel and gas and propane duel fuel options. For use in tight areas, the minimal tail-swing offers amazing maneuverability.
