When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, equipment and machinery, articulating man lifts are the perfect alternative. These machinery are capable of reaching elevated areas that are not easily accessed by a telescopic or straight boom lift.
What Precisely Is an Articulated Boom Lift?
A cherry picker or an articulated boom lift is a hydraulically powered lift that is utilized to reach the hard to access, elevated areas above ground level. An articulated boom lift is controlled by the driver from a panel that is located in the bucket.
The articulated boom parts allow the machinery to travel in different directions. Like for example, a boom lift is capable of traveling both horizontally and vertically, as opposed to a scissor lift, which only has vertical travel capability. The boom lift can easily reach over huge obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is attached to and supported by a grounded vehicle.
Boom lifts are normally utilized by construction crews and window fitters who require 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 frequently utilize boom lifts.
Specialty lift manufacturers provide various models for boom lifts. These machinery are also available for short-term use from companies who rent industrial machinery. Electric Man lifts are utilized mainly on indoor applications and slab. Their narrow chassis design offers easy access in tight places. The Engine-Drive Man lifts provide 2 various fuel choices. These include diesel fuel and gas and propane duel fuel options. For use in tight areas, the minimal tail-swing provides amazing maneuverability.
