When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, equipment and machinery, articulating man lifts are the perfect choice. These equipment could reach high places which are not accessed easily by a straight or telescopic boom lift.
What Exactly 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, high places above ground level. An articulated boom lift is controlled by the operator from a panel that is located in the bucket.
The different components of the articulated boom allow it to travel in various directions. For instance, a boom lift is capable of traveling both vertically and horizontally, as opposed to a scissor lift, that can just travel vertically. The boom lift could easily reach over huge obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is supported by and attached to a grounded vehicle.
Boom lifts are normally utilized by construction crews and window fitters who need a stable and strong platform on which to stand when completing work on the outside of a building. Tree surgeons and lamppost engineers as well as firefighters use boom lifts on a regular basis.
Specialty lift manufacturers provide different models for boom lifts. These equipment are additionally offered for short-term use from companies who rent industrial machinery. Electric Man lifts are mostly used on slab and indoor applications. Their narrow chassis design provides easy access in tight areas. The Engine-Drive Man lifts offer 2 different fuel choices. These include propane and gas duel fuel options and diesel fuel. For use in congested places, the minimal tail-swing provides amazing maneuverability.
