What Is a Boom Truck?
To recover heavy things or to transport materials to areas and places that are not usually accessible, boom trucks would utilize a winch. For example, they are commonly utilized maneuvering supplies to a hillside or over a ditch or to reach the top of a building.

A huge truck is equipped with a boom winch. This is mounted in the bed of the truck and then it is capable of moving construction items and other equipment from street-side to a certain location. There is a different boom truck configuration that is outfitted with a cherry picker. This model allows arborists to easily access treetops.

The Vehicle
Terex's Stinger BT 3063 model has a reach of 113-feet and is equipped with both stabilizers and outriggers. A boom truck could vary from an aerial work platform which is moved by a hydraulic lifting mechanism that is mounted on the bed, up to a Class 8 tractor-trailer rig with a bucket. It is also possible to have a modified boom lift made for a particular buyer's needs.

Cherry Picker
Bucket trucks are cherry pickers which could raise workers to great heights. Typically, cherry pickers or buckets transport employees from the ground up to high places like treetops, the sides of a building, up utility poles or for fire department rescue and firefighting.

Location
The boom platform could be operated by remote from the truck's cab. Either the boom is mounted on a separate trailer or on the bed of a large truck. Booms which are bigger need outriggers that extend horizontally from the truck in order to level out and stabilize the crane throughout its use.

Controls
This type of boom truck has a cab-over-engine which has a control cluster which can move the boom from inside the cab. It is usually a panel in the boom itself on the side of the bed.
