Terex Knuckle Boom Lifts

Terex Knuckle Boom Lifts

Telescoping Boom Lifts
Telescopic booms are big industrial machines designed with a straight boom arm which is extendable. The boom is normally situated on a rotating turntable. The telescoping boom lifts are normally utilized for jobs which require tasks to be carried out at heights that exceed other kinds of lifts. Like for instance, workers could carry out exterior renovations or repairs on buildings of medium height but utilizing these lifts rather than having the additional work of setting up an outside elevator or a pulley system.

The boom lift bucket generally only holds one worker. These buckets are better suited to specific tasks like for example electrical repair, rather than window washing or general maintenance. These lifts are offered with both indoor and outdoor tires and come in electric and gas configurations.

Scissor Lifts
Underneath the scissor lifts work platform are the cross braces in which the machinery gets its name. Once the braces move together it pushes the platform straight up. Since these units should be directly positioned below the work location, compared to boom lifts, these units are way more limited in their use.

The scissor lift typically has a larger platform that allows the operator to control the lift to access a larger work area once the lift platform is raised off the ground. With scissor lifts, all-terrain capability is less of an issue with these models, since they need to sit on flat ground in order to be used. Scissor lifts are great for being utilized for cladding or window installation, since they provide the employees with the desired mobility; they are also a good alternative for window cleaning applications or exterior repairs.

Boom Trucks vs. Cranes
The boom truck or cherry picker refers to the utility vehicle normally utilized to lift employees for different jobs done at heights. Generally, these types of trucks have a cab. It is here where the driver sits and controls the equipment. There is a bucket for where the worker could stand along with an actuator arm for lifting the boom and a winch for carrying.

Boom trucks take personnel to heights that would usually be inaccessible. The function of cranes is to lift heavy materials or equipment from one location to another. There are a variety of different crane types that can carry out various purposes. Both of these different kinds of equipment excel at various jobs and are suitable for specific applications and completing certain tasks.
