The Advantages of a Man Lift
Man lifts offer an easy and safe method to fix problems at places that are too high to reach by other ways. Mechanical lifts enable employees to lift safely to a high work location. Usually, man lifts are utilized by construction and service employees to complete work on buildings, light poles and other places that are too up high to reach by other ways.
Taking safety into account is the main factor when utilizing a man lift. Ladders are not a viable choice for extreme heights and therefore man lifts are the perfect choice for these types of areas. Most of these machines are equipped with emergency shut-off switches and safety rails to make worker safety a top priority.
Man lifts could reach heights which other equipment is not capable to. Originally utilized to pick fruit, the machine has evolved to conquer numerous uses. For example, they are commonly used for changing light bulbs and to do finishing work in the construction business. Typically, man lifts could reach heights of 20 to 100 feet.
Some man lift models are small enough to be brought indoors to be able to raise workers to complete finishing structures in places like large office buildings, hotels and sports arenas. They are capable of being powered with electricity. This eliminates the noxious fumes and their associated hazards.
Engine-Powered Boom Lifts
An engine-powered boom lift is the solution for employees who have to reach heights both efficiently and quickly. The boom lift allows for a much mobility, capable of moving in numerous directions. Boom lifts could easily fit between narrow spaces as well. Each "joint" in the boom lift is controlled to adjust to various heights in order to place the worker exactly where she or he must be to be able to get the job done. The engine power system is what enables boom lifts to reach their full elevation quickly. Firefighters often use engine powered boom lifts when there are on a rescue mission and need to rapidly ascend to heights.
