When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, equipment and machinery, articulating man lifts are the perfect choice. These equipment are capable of reaching high positions that are not easily accessed by a telescopic or straight boom lift.
What Precisely Is an Articulated Boom Lift?
The articulating boom lift or cherry picker is hydraulically powered lift which can easily access, high places above ground level. An articulated boom lift is controlled by the driver from a panel which is situated in the bucket.
The articulated boom components enable the machine to travel in different directions. Like for example, a boom lift can travel both vertically and horizontally, as opposed to a scissor lift, which only has vertical travel capability. The boom lift can easily reach over big obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is supported by and attached to a grounded vehicle.
Window fitters and construction crews use boom lifts for is strong and stable platform on which to stand when working on the outsides of buildings. Lamppost engineers and tree surgeons as well as firefighters utilize boom lifts regularly.
For boom lifts, there are specialty lift manufacturers making various models. These machines are sometimes available for short-term use from companies who rent industrial equipment. Electric Man lifts are utilized mainly on indoor applications and slab. Their narrow chassis design offers easy access in tight areas. The Engine-Drive Man lifts provide 2 different fuel options. These include diesel fuel and gas and propane duel fuel options. For use in tight places, the minimal tail-swing offers incredible maneuverability.
