Manitou Aerial Lifts

Lots of workplace applications would require more reach than the regular task. The articulating and telescopic booms is a great choice for these specific situations. Bi-energy or electric or engine-powered booms are ideal for rough terrain, outdoor or indoor applications, so basically, there is a suitable boom lift available for each type of job. Simply take the time to figure out what kind of loads you will be dealing with and what kinds of capacities you will need to get the job done.

Articulating booms are described as aerial work platforms which use many boom sections that articulate or hinge. These machinery offer a maximum reach of 6.25 meters or 21 feet 5 inches to 21.26 meters or 69 feet 9 inches. These models can vary in height between 36 feet and 11.14 meters or 141 feet or 43.15 meters. Articulated boom units are often classified by platform height and by horizontal reach.

Articulating booms are usually used to access work areas over obstacles and barriers including machinery or shelving. As opposed to telescopic booms, they have less horizontal outreach, the articulating booms provide better up and over positioning and greater versatility. This allows better access for overhead work places from aisles and from congested places. Throughout the variety of articulating booms, the majority of them are able to hold weight capacities of as much as 227 kg or 500 pounds. These machines could easily raise 2 operators and their tools and sometimes extra supplies.

Like scissor lifts, the industrial and rough terrain articulating booms are normally equipped with non-marking tires and are made for indoor use. The majority of articulated boom manufacturers use clean burning fuels such as DC electric power or liquid propane gas or LPG for their industrial models. AC drive system technology is popular in industrial forklifts, although it is new to the aerial work platforms market. This technology combines 3-phase AC drive motors with DC batteries for more drive speed and braking, continuous control of turning and overall energy efficient operation.

Rough-terrain units are specifically designed to negotiate rugged construction site locations. With features like lug-tread tires, diesel engines, 4-wheel drive and an oscillating axle, these specialized things are common-place on rough-terrain articulating booms. These heavy-duty add-ons are what really make these machinery able to withstand the rough environments they work in.
