Skyjack Articulating Man lifts

Types of Articulating Man Lifts
Man lifts are available in both engine-powered and electric-powered models. These machines are made up to complete a range of applications depending on the function and the industry. There are some outdoor lifts that are able to rise up more than 140 feet and have a 69 foot horizontal lift. There are some lifts that are especially designed for small spaces. These models can extend 21 feet and rise 36 feet.

The electric powered man lift models are generally used on indoor concrete floors. They often have slim designs in order to easily fit into narrow spaces. Engine-powered man lifts typically operate on diesel, propane and gas. They are mainly designed for outdoor applications.

Electric Man Lifts
The electric man lift is best suited for indoor applications as they are made smaller, more able to fit in tight spaces and fit through standard doorways. These models do not contribute to air pollution and are able to maneuver around barriers and blockages, while still reaching overhead work places.

There are some electric lifts that have a rotating platform. This mechanism allows for extremely targeted and precise movements. The lift controls have been designed to implement accuracy and efficiency. The electric lifts are available in numerous sizes. They are able to be used in places with high ceilings or in small warehouses. The electric drives utilize rechargeable batteries that can be recharged after the shift ends.

Engine-Powered Lifts
Articulating lifts that are engine-powered are designed to work on all types of terrains. Some machines come fitted with legs that hoist the lift's body off its wheels to help create a more stable foundation. There are other models that are specifically designed for uneven and rough terrain. The majority of the lifts are able to handle 500lbs. Certain models can even take on 600 lb. loads. In these heavy-duty instances, the machine can articulate 69 feet out in any direction or more than 140 feet high.
