What Precisely Is an Articulating Boom Lift?
The articulated boom lift is a heavy duty machine capable of performing various jobs from construction applications to electrical repair. These extremely maneuverable lifts make working at heights a lot efficient and safer.
Knuckle boom lifts are a different term utilized for articulating boom lifts. These machines can reach heights from 36 feet to 131 feet, depending on the model of the particular lift.
Articulating boom lifts are designed with many bending elbows. These are in conjunction with extendable arms which allow the articulating lifts to reach outwards and over things in addition to upwards.
Telescoping vs. Articulating
Telescoping or straight boom lifts have a working height that ranges from forty six to 86 feet. Unlike articulating lifts, these ones do not contain elbows and extend in a straight line. This simplifies some of the lift training but also restricts the areas that are able to be reached with it.
The design of the articulating boom lift helps to ensure it can negotiate around obstacles and objects. These lifts have zero tail swing, are convenient for indoor application and offered in electrical models. These specific types of lifts are perfect for crowded work situations.
