Articulating man lifts are the perfect alternative when reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, machinery and equipment. These machines could reach elevated positions that are not accessed easily by a straight or telescopic boom lift.
What Is an Articulated Boom Lift?
A cherry picker or an articulated boom lift 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 driver from a panel which is located in the bucket.
The articulated boom components enable the machinery to travel in various directions. Like for instance, a boom lift can travel both horizontally and vertically, as opposed to a scissor lift, that could only travel vertically. The boom lift is able to easily reach over huge obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is attached to and supported by a grounded vehicle.
Window fitters and construction crews utilize boom lifts for is stable and strong platform on which to stand when working on the outsides of buildings. Lamppost engineers and tree surgeons as well as firefighters utilize boom lifts frequently.
For boom lifts, there are specialty lift manufacturers making various models. These machinery are sometimes offered for short-term use from businesses who rent industrial equipment. Electric Man lifts are used mostly on slab and indoor applications. Their narrow chassis design offers easy access in tight areas. The Engine-Drive Man lifts provide 2 various fuel choices. These include gas and propane duel fuel options and diesel fuel. For applications in tight places, the minimal tail-swing offers amazing maneuverability.
