Aerial boom lifts are very useful machineries for carrying out many works. This machinery has become an integral part of the work which happens at elevated heights. It transports the workers and machineries to these elevated work sites.
Any repairs and construction work happening at an elevated place can only happen with the help of an aerial boom lift. The construction workers also make use of this often. Poll industries and telephone wiring industries need these as they do the works on top of the polls. These lifts also known as cherry pickers as the name suggests, can also be used for plucking cherries. These machineries usually reach a height of 48 meters (156 feet). The maximum weight capacity is 1000 pounds. There are different kinds of lifts and they have varied uses.
Articulating boom lifts also known as knuckle lifts are designed so as to transport the machinery and equipments. There are many unique features for these lifts. Even in the fully elevated position of the lift, the machinery is functional. Moreover they have the ability to be rotated in 360 degrees. So it can be rotated in both the directions. The width of the lift is also made narrower so that it can be easily moved in congested spaces. The controlling of the device is also made easy. This aids in the smooth forward and backward movement of the machinery. The lifts, which we commonly find indoors is the electrical boom. They serve the same purpose and have same features as the Articulating boom lifts.
Rechargeable batteries are used to power them. They can be driven around easily and even when the list are in elevation. The narrow chassis make it easy to work in narrow places. The straight / stick types of lift are called telescopic boom lifts. The easy immovability is the main feature of this. The 360 degree movement ability makes the sideways movement and upward-downward movement easy. Towable are another kind of lifts, which comes useful for work. This comes with an articulated boom and a turntable which is attached to trailer chassis. These can be used to tow it behind a vehicle and gasoline generators or rechargeable batteries are carried along with it for running it. These different varieties of lifts can be very useful for your work and must be chosen according to your requirement.
