Boom Lift Tips
A great device to reach high locations from the comfort of a metal deck can be accomplished with an aerial boom. There are various styles and sizes and models to select from. These lifts can run on diesel or gasoline engines and from electric batteries as well. Boom lifts are specifically able to lift occupants as high as 150 feet. In order to safely utilize these lifts, the operator must wear approved harnesses which are attached to the lifting platform.
How High Do I Need to Go?
Before choosing a lift, it is better to assess the job you would be performing. If able, measure the height form the ground to the work location. Before commencing, scout out the place which the lift would be moving as terrain which is uneven will utilize another boom lift as opposed to a work area on asphalt or concrete. The job site is also very appointment. Lifts which will be traveling a lot will provide better service if they are diesel or gas powered. The battery powered models would have to be recharged more often as they would run down fast after great distances are traveled, despite the differences in terrain.
Before starting a task, make certain you are familiar with operating the machine. Furthermore, perform a daily inspection by inspecting all the components and do a visual inspection around the machine. Take note of the tires and ensure that they are well inflated to the right pressure. Visually check beneath the lift to be certain that noting is caught on the undercarriage. Safety inspections can be the difference between keeping the operator and those around them safe.
