When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, machinery and equipment, articulating man lifts are the perfect choice. These machinery are capable of reaching elevated places that are not accessed easily by a telescopic or straight boom lift.
What Is an Articulated Boom Lift?
The cherry picker or articulated boom lift is hydraulically powered lift which could easily access, high places 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 allow the machinery to travel in different directions. Like for instance, a boom lift is capable of traveling both vertically and horizontally, as opposed to a scissor lift, which can just travel vertically. The boom lift is able to easily reach over big obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is attached to and supported by a grounded vehicle.
Boom lifts are usually utilized by window fitters and construction crews who need a strong and stable platform on which to stand when doing work on the outside of a building. Tree surgeons and lamppost engineers as well as firefighters regularly utilize boom lifts.
For boom lifts, there are specialty lift manufacturers producing different models. These machines are sometimes offered for short-term use from companies who rent industrial machines. Electric Man lifts are utilized mainly on indoor applications and slab. Their narrow chassis design provides easy access in tight areas. The Engine-Drive Man lifts offer 2 various fuel choices. These include propane and gas duel fuel options and diesel fuel. For use in congested places, the minimal tail-swing offers incredible maneuverability.
