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