When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, equipment and machinery, articulating man lifts are the perfect choice. These equipment can reach elevated places which 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 areas above ground level. An articulated boom lift is controlled by the driver from a panel that is located in the bucket.
The various components of the articulated boom enable it 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 could just travel vertically. The boom lift is able to easily reach over large obstacles by being able to travel in opposing directions. This boom is supported by and attached to a grounded vehicle.
Boom lifts are often utilized by window fitters and construction crews who need a strong and stable platform on which to stand when completing work on the outside of a building. Tree surgeons and lamppost engineers as well as firefighters regularly utilize boom lifts.
Specialty lift manufacturers offer various models for boom lifts. These equipment are additionally offered for short-term use from businesses who rent industrial machines. Electric Man lifts are mainly utilized on slab and indoor applications. Their narrow chassis design offers easy access in tight places. The Engine-Drive Man lifts provide 2 different fuel choices. These include diesel fuel and propane and gas duel fuel options. For use in congested places, the minimal tail-swing offers incredible maneuverability.
