The Benefits of a Man Lift
Man lifts offer an easy and safe method to fix problems at areas which are too high to reach by other ways. Mechanical lifts allow personnel to lift safely to an elevated work location. Normally, man lifts are used by construction and service employees to complete work on light poles, buildings and other areas which are very up high to reach by other ways.
The major factor when operating a man lift is of course taking safety into consideration. Ladders are not a practical alternative for extreme heights and hence man lifts are the best choice for these areas. The majority of these equipment are equipped with emergency shut-off switches and safety rails to make worker safety a top priority.
Man lifts can reach heights which other equipment is unable to. Initially used to pick fruit, the machine has evolved to conquer many uses. For example, they are commonly utilized to do finishing work in the construction industry and changing light bulbs. Commonly, man lifts can reach heights of around 20 to 100 feet.
Some man lift models are small enough to be brought inside in order to lift workers to complete finishing structures in areas such as large office buildings, sports arenas and hotels. They are capable of being powered with electricity. This eliminates the harmful fumes and the hazards associated with them.
Engine-Powered Boom Lifts
If workers have to be transported to their height destination efficiently and quickly, an engine-powered boom lift is the solution. Boom lifts offer a wide range of mobility. These machinery could also be moved in various directions. Boom lifts can also easily fit into narrow spaces. Each "joint" in the boom lift is controlled to adjust to different heights in order to position the worker exactly where he or she should be in order to get the job completed. The engine power system is what allows boom lifts to reach their full elevation quickly. Firefighters usually make use of engine powered boom lifts when there are on a rescue mission and need to quickly ascend to heights.
