Telescoping Boom Lifts
Telescoping booms lifts are designed to mount a work bucket on a straight, extendable arm which is located on a rotating turntable. Normally, telescoping boom lifts are utilized for tasks which need reaching at maximum height, exceeding other kinds of lifts. For instance, employees are able to carry out exterior repairs or renovations on medium sized buildings but utilizing these lifts rather than having the additional work of setting up an outside elevator or a pulley system.
The bucket of the boom lift usually only holds one worker. These buckets are better suitable to specific tasks like for example electrical repair, rather than general maintenance or window washing. These lifts are offered with both indoor and outdoor tires and are available in electric and gas configurations.
Below the scissor lifts work platform are the cross braces in which the machine gets its name. Once the braces move together it pushes the platform straight up. As these kinds of equipment must be positioned directly beneath the work location, these units are way more limited in their use compared to boom lifts.
Scissor lifts do, on the other hand, offer bigger platforms which allow the operator controlling the lift to access a bigger work surface when the lift is raised. With scissor lifts, all-terrain capability is less of a problem with these models, as they should sit on flat ground in order to be used. Scissor lifts are ideal for being used for cladding or window installation, as they provide the workers with the desired mobility; they are also a great alternative for exterior repairs or window cleaning applications.
Boom Trucks vs. Cranes
Cherry pickers, boom trucks and bucket trucks each refer to the class a kind of utility vehicle utilized specifically for vertical work. Generally, these types of trucks have a cab. It is here where the operator sits and operates the equipment. There is a bucket for where the worker could stand as well as a winch for lifting and an actuator arm for lifting the boom.
Cherry pickers can raise personnel up to heights that were previously inaccessible. The cranes function is to raise both heavy supplies and equipment for one location to another. There are various kinds of cranes which could carry out various purposes. Both of these different kinds of equipment excel at different jobs and are great for specific applications and finishing particular jobs.
