Articulating boom lifts are more flexible, using an articulated upper section similar to cherry pickers. These articulated boom lifts offer the same movement options as cherry picker hire options but are not as expensive as full cherry picker hire arrangements in most cases.
Like a cherry picker, they can reach out over rough terrain in East Lothian. An articulated boom gives easy manoeuvrability, but the work platform may reach a lower working height as it moves further towards the edge of its range. This makes an articulating boom a versatile tool that can move around obstacles in both outdoor and indoor areas.
A telescopic boom lift trades the articulated boom body for a single straight stick, which can extend outwards. This gives it more range and working height than an articulated boom, but it also loses the advantages of more flexibility and versatility.
These stick booms (or mast booms) are like multi-directional scissor lifts that reach a great working height and can be angled to offer more positioning options. However, obstacles can get in the way, and restricted spaces without much open air space can make access slightly tougher.
Diesel, electric, or bi-energy booms are a bucket at the end of a control arm, giving workers an easy way to gain access to greater working heights and create temporary platforms. Booms can work for any job where working height is important, but the person using them need specific training courses to operate.
A boom lift offers easy access to a working height, often working heights that are too great for other equipment to reach in East Lothian. Booms are suitable for outdoor and indoor use and are more compact than a larger cherry picker model in most cases, making them a convenient option as a whole.
What is the difference between a boom lift and a scissor lift?
A boom lift uses a straight mast that can often be angled, while a scissor lift uses scissor joints but can only rise upwards. This makes them significantly different tools on account of how they function.
A man lift is similar to a boom lift, but boom lifts are often more versatile. Operators can attach them to trucks or other vehicles and adjust the angle of the lift – things that a man lift can’t usually do.
These lifts are often called cherry pickers, elevating work platforms, aerial work platforms, or even aerial devices. These names often overlap with others, so ‘boom lift’ is the most direct way to clarify.
These lifts work for outdoor projects in East Lothian just fine, even in the rain. However, a wet platform presents a slip hazard, whether it is wet from rain or site cleaning specialists.
These lifts could tip over if the lift is placed on an uneven or loose surface. Choose a solid, stable site to position the lift if possible.
The tallest lifts are truck-mounted options that reach hundreds of feet into the air – more than the average company will need. Most electric and diesel booms do not reach that far at all.
If you need a boom lift that you can rely on, then you can get in touch with our expert staff to find the perfect option for your current project. Everything from the maximum work height to the power source can be important factors to consider, and we can help you work through every step of the hiring process.
