Manitou Aerial Lifts

Manitou Aerial Lifts

Numerous workplace applications would need more reach than the average task. The telescopic and articulating booms is a great option for these particular instances. Bi-energy or electric or engine-powered booms are ideal for indoor, rough terrain or outdoor applications, so technically, there is a suitable boom lift available for every kind of task. Just take the time to figure out what types of capacities you would require to get the job done and what type of cargo you will be dealing with.

As aerial work platforms, the articulating booms utilize many boom parts that articulate or hinge. These equipment offer a maximum reach of 21 feet 5 inches or 6.25 meters to 21.26 meters or 69 feet 9 inches. These units could vary in height between 11.14 meters and 36 feet or 141 feet or 43.15 meters. Articulated boom models are normally classified by horizontal reach and by platform height.

In order to access work places over barriers and obstacles like equipment or shelving, the articulating booms are usually utilized. They have less horizontal outreach compared to telescopic booms, but the articulating booms offer greater versatility and better positioning. This enables better access for overhead work places from aisles and from congested areas. Throughout the range of articulating booms, the majority of them could hold weight capacities of up to 227 kg or 500 lbs. These machines are able to easily raise 2 operators and their tools and sometimes extra supplies.

There are both industrial and rough terrain articulating booms, similar to scissor lifts. Industrial units are usually equipped with non-marking tires and are made for indoor use. The majority of articulated boom manufacturers utilize clean burning fuels such as DC electric power or liquid propane gas or LPG for their industrial units. AC drive system technology is common in industrial forklifts, even though it is new to the aerial work platforms market. This technology combines DC batteries along with 3-phase AC drive motors for more continuous control of turning, braking and drive speed and overall energy efficient operation.

Rough-terrain units are specifically designed to negotiate rugged construction site locations. With features like diesel engines, lug-tread tires, an oscillating axle and 4-wheel drive, these specialized items are common-place on rough-terrain articulating booms. These heavy-duty extras are what make these machines able to withstand the rough environments they operate in.
