Boom lifts can be described as vertical booms which incorporate manoeuvrability as well as an open cage or bucket at the end which can be used by someone in performing aerial tasks in places which are too high to reach with equipment such as ladders. You have probably seen a boom lift in action, presumably when driving and you notice a billboard being fixed and the workers are on an elevated machine which gives them access to the highly placed billboards. Boom lifts do exist in different variations which include the articulating booms which are both electric and bio-energy, the articulating booms which are only engine as well as the telescoping booms.
- Articulating Booms: Electric and Bi-Energy – These types of lift booms do offer operations which are free of emissions in environments which are very sensitive. This includes industrial applications where the operator has to drive the machine for significant distances. The machine offers various applications such as up, over and out positioning capabilities. It is also inclusive of the tight turning radius as well as no tail swing giving the operators easy manoeuvring in places with standard doors as well as narrow aisles. Also, the machines comprise of both drive controls as well as a proportional lift which intern deliver a smooth driving experience as well as precise boom positioning. Lastly, the platform which is self-levelling has the capability of rotating 90 degrees on whichever side as intended by the operators.
- Articulating Boom: Engine – This type of boom lift is mostly suitable for industrial applications and outdoor construction. The machines offer versatile lifting with an ability to move up, over and out positions with a significantly increased outreach. Ideal for outdoor construction and industrial applications. It is also able to manoeuvre in confined regions due to the machines zero tail swing characteristics as well as the tight turning radius. The quiet engine of the boom lift is designed to deliver torque, excellent power, trainability as well as gradability. Similar to the electric and Bi-Energy model, the Articulating engine model also has a self-levelling platform which can rotate on either side at 90 degrees.
- Telescoping Booms – The telescoping booms are used to offer bigger horizontal outreach. This, in fact, is the best when compared to any other aerial platforms. The booms are applicable in areas which are hard to reach such as construction and industrial sites. They have a slight tail swing which can be used in the accessing of tight spaces. The use of dual-fuel options make the machines suitable for either indoor or outdoor applications.
