What Is a Boom Truck?
To recover heavy things or to transport materials to places and areas that are not usually accessible, boom trucks will use a winch. Like for instance, they are usually utilized maneuvering materials over a ditch or to a hillside or to reach the top of a building.

A big truck is equipped with a boom winch. This is mounted in the bed of the truck and then it is capable of transporting construction things and other equipment from street-side to a certain area. There is a different boom truck design which is outfitted with a cherry picker. This version enables arborists to easily access treetops.

The Vehicle
The Stinger BT 3063 model has a 113-foot reach and is outfitted with stabilizers and outriggers. A boom truck could vary from an aerial work platform that is moved by a hydraulic lifting mechanism that is mounted on the bed, up to a Class 8 tractor-trailer rig with a bucket. It is also possible to have a modified boom lift manufactured for a particular buyer's needs.

Cherry Picker
Cherry pickers or bucket booms allow workers to reach excellent heights. Typically, cherry pickers or buckets transport workers from the ground up to high places like treetops, the sides of a building, up utility poles or for fire department rescue and firefighting.

Location
The boom platform can be operated from the truck's cab by remote. Either the boom is mounted on the bed of a big truck or on a separate trailer. Booms which are bigger require outriggers that horizontally extend from the truck in order to level out and stabilize the crane during its operation.

Controls
A cab-over-engine model boom truck has a control cluster capable of moving the boom situated in the cab. It is normally a panel in the boom itself on the side of the bed.
