Where is best to use a boom lift?

Cherry Pickers, also known as Boom Lifts can offer ‘outreach’ due to extendable sections of the boom. To name just a few of their applications, these platforms are ideal for working either indoors on various shopping centre or factory maintenance projects or outdoors on telecoms, steel erection, exterior painting, signage, or even window cleaning and roof repair projects.

When considering boom lift hire it is important to understand that this ‘outreach’ can be in either a straight line or articulated to offer users an ‘up and over’ capability. Booms are mobile and versatile and can be driven at height within certain safety parameters. Booms can extend forwards, upward, out and over obstacles so don’t have to be parked directly below the target area.

Due to their outreach capability cherry pickers can reach a diverse range of elevations and can be parked at variable distances away from the actual target they need to reach. Although some 4 x 4 models can travel over rough terrain they still need to be operated from firm level ground, if you need to work from a slope then maybe a Trackmount (also known as a tracked boom or spiderlift) may be more suited, take advantage of our free site survey if you are not sure what you need.
