When reaching up and overtop of obstacles mounted on floors, equipment and machinery, articulating man lifts are the perfect alternative. These equipment are capable of reaching high areas 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 that could easily access, high places above ground level. An articulated boom lift is controlled by the operator from a panel which is situated in the bucket.
The articulated boom parts allow the machine to travel in different directions. Like for example, a boom lift is capable of traveling both vertically and horizontally, as opposed to a scissor lift, which can only 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 used by window fitters and construction crews who require a strong and stable platform on which to stand when completing work on the outside of a building. Lamppost engineers and tree surgeons as well as firefighters frequently utilize boom lifts.
For boom lifts, there are specialty lift manufacturers producing different models. These equipment are sometimes offered for short-term use from businesses who rent industrial equipment. Electric Man lifts are mostly used on slab and indoor applications. Their narrow chassis design offers easy access in tight areas. The Engine-Drive Man lifts provide 2 various fuel options. These include propane and gas duel fuel options and diesel fuel. For use in congested areas, the minimal tail-swing provides incredible maneuverability.
