What Is a Boom Truck?
A boom truck utilizes a winch to recover heavy things or move supplies to places which are usually not accessible. Like for instance, they are normally utilized maneuvering materials to a hillside or over a ditch or to reach the top of a building.
Bigger trucks are outfitted with a boom winch which is mounted in the bed of a truck. It is capable of transporting construction things and other equipment from the side of the street to a particular location. There is a different boom truck design that is outfitted with a cherry picker. This version allows arborists to easily access treetops.
The Stinger BT 3063 model has a 113-foot reach and is outfitted with outriggers and stabilizers. A boom truck could range from an aerial work platform that is moved by a hydraulic lifting device which is mounted on the bed, up to a Class 8 tractor-trailer rig with a bucket. It is also possible to have a customized boom lift made for a specific buyer's requirements.
Cherry pickers or bucket booms allow workers to reach excellent heights. Normally, buckets or cherry pickers transport workers from the ground up to high areas like for example the sides of buildings, treetops, up utility poles or for fire department rescue and firefighting.
The boom platform could be operated by remote from the truck's cab. Either the boom is mounted on a separate trailer or on the bed of a large truck. Larger booms require outriggers that horizontally extend from the truck in order to level out and stabilize the crane in its operation.
A cab-over-engine model boom truck has a control cluster responsible for moving the boom located in the cab. It is often a panel in the boom itself on the side of the bed.
