Terex Knuckle Boom Lifts
Telescoping Boom Lifts
Telescoping booms lifts are designed to mount a work bucket on an extendable, straight arm that is located on a rotating turntable. Typically, telescoping boom lifts are used for jobs that require reaching at maximum height, exceeding other kinds of lifts. For instance, workers can perform exterior repairs or renovations on medium sized buildings but using these lifts instead of having the additional work of setting up a pulley system or an outside elevator.
The boom lift is only designed to hold one individual. These buckets are better suited to particular jobs such as electrical repair, rather than general maintenance or window washing. These lifts are available in gas or electric configurations and are offered with both indoor and outdoor tires.
Scissor lifts are named for the cross-braces below the work platform. These braces squeeze together to be able to push the platform straight up. As these kinds of units should be positioned directly below the work location, these units are way more limited in their use as opposed to boom lifts.
Scissor lifts do, however, provide larger platforms which enable the operator controlling the lift to access a larger work surface when the lift is raised. With scissor lifts, all-terrain capability is less of a problem with these models, because they should sit on flat ground in order to be used. Scissor lifts are ideal for being used for cladding or window installation, as they provide the workers with the desired mobility; they are also a great option for exterior repairs or window cleaning applications.
Boom Trucks vs. Cranes
The cherry picker or boom truck refers to the utility vehicle normally utilized to lift employees for different tasks done at heights. Generally, these types of trucks have a cab. It is here where the operator sits and operates the machinery. There is a bucket for where the worker could stand in addition to a winch for lifting and an actuator arm for raising the boom.
Boom trucks take personnel to heights that would normally be inaccessible. The function of cranes is to lift heavy materials or equipment from one location to another. There are various types of cranes that could perform various purposes. Both of these different kinds of machines excel at various jobs and are suitable for particular applications and accomplishing certain tasks.
