Focus on Telescopic Boom Lifts
Telescopic boom lifts are now manufactured in all shapes and sizes and can be used indoors and outdoors for work at height. Boom lifts are perfect you when a machine cannot be parked directly below the target area for work, the boom configuration allows the user to go “up, out and over” creating “outreach” The outreach is the main differentiator between using a scissor lift and a telescopic boom lift.
Benefits of telescopic boom lifts:
Certain booms offer a minimal amount of tail swing. This enables them to be used in areas with limited access and tight spaces. Perfect for working safely at heights with minimal disruption. Lift capacities vary per model and booms are not to be used for lifting materials but always people and their tools. Compact and easy to transfer from site to site, the telescopic boom is a useful piece of machinery that can be utilised for a range of purposes.
