When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, equipment and machinery, articulating man lifts are the perfect choice. These machines could reach elevated places that are not accessed easily by a straight or telescopic boom lift.
What Exactly Is an Articulated Boom Lift?
The articulating boom lift or cherry picker is hydraulically powered lift which could easily access, high places above ground level. An articulated boom lift is controlled by the driver from a panel that is situated in the bucket.
The articulated boom components enable the machinery to travel in various directions. For example, a boom lift could travel both horizontally and vertically, as opposed to a scissor lift, that could just travel vertically. The boom lift is able to easily reach over huge obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is supported by and attached to a grounded vehicle.
Boom lifts are often used by window fitters and construction crews who need a strong and stable platform on which to stand when doing work on the outside of a building. Tree surgeons and lamppost engineers as well as firefighters frequently utilize boom lifts.
Specialty lift manufacturers provide a variety of models for boom lifts. These machines are additionally available for short-term use from businesses who rent industrial machinery. Electric Man lifts are mostly used on slab and indoor applications. Their narrow chassis design provides easy access in tight places. The Engine-Drive Man lifts offer 2 different fuel options. These include gas and propane duel fuel options and diesel fuel. For use in tight places, the minimal tail-swing provides amazing maneuverability.
