Greater horizontal outreach could be attained utilizing telescopic booms more than any other kind of aerial platform. These kinds of machines are ideal for places that provide limited access in industrial and construction situations.
The capacities of CAT's telescopic booms range from 9.65 meters or 31 feet 8 inches to 80 feet and 24.38 meters. These units provide working height up to 46 feet or 14.20 meters to 131 feet 2 inches or 40.15 meters. Telescopic boom nomenclature typically includes a reference to the platform height of the boom so as to identify the machine's capacity.
Since they offer the torque, traction and speed needed to get the job completed, telescopic booms have been extremely productive on the worksite. Though the machines are built huge enough to reach higher, they are still compact enough to fit great within confined spaces. The full-time oscillating axle and the positive traction system offered by the rough-terrain models enable the rugged jobsites to be handled with precision and ease. Additionally, some particular models offer extendable axles which offer stability and retract for easy transportation. There are many diesel engine alternatives available on the market too.
Operators will be able to maximize their jobsite productivity by choosing the right lift to suit all their application needs. Furthermore, customizing the chosen lift would help ensure that workers get the specific equipment they require for projects.
Typically, lifts have a variety of platform options, starting with the platform size. Operators may have to choose from steel platforms ranging in size from 1.22 meters to 2.44 meters or from 4 to 8 feet. There are a variety of platform accessories available to help modify the lift for its specific application. Platform accessories can include the following items: half-height mesh, fluorescent tube caddy, auxiliary top railing, control box cover, welder leads, tool tray and work lights.
There are so many various attachments and options available on the market nowadays. Companies are trying to diversify their machinery as much as possible in order to satisfy all their various customer requirements. It is worth the research to find out what particular options your telescopic boom lift could utilize.
