Terex Articulated Boom Lifts
Types of Construction Lifts or Boom Lifts
Construction lifts refer to the machines used to allow employees to locate high-up locations without building any scaffolding. They are utilized to do maintenance work, to work on elevated structures and are common machinery found in factory and warehouse environment too.
Boom lifts would normally offer wheeled and powered bases which can drive itself to the work place and have a platform on them to elevate the workers. There are many various types of lifts and each and every one is suitable to different tasks and settings.
Cherry pickers or bucket trucks, are built with a long boom that has a bucket attached at the end. This bucket area is where a worker may stand. Usually, bucket trucks are utilized by utility workers and by landscapers. Landscapers usually utilize these machines to prune trees.
Bucket trucks are outfitted with a boom assembly that is mounted on a regular truck, and this means these lifts could travel on roads at normal traffic speeds. This mobility really increases the area they could effectively service. This is specially vital for power companies. Like for instance, many of these businesses use cherry pickers to raise workers up so they can reach and work on transmission lines. The buckets must be checked on a regular basis and well insulated since they are working close to possible shock hazards.
Articulated boom lifts are also known as "knuckle lifts", and consist of a work platform that is mounted on an arm that can bend so as to reach around obstacles. The base of the lift contains a turntable and can turn the lift in a full circle. The base of the lift is mounted on wheels as well for extra mobility.
Articulated boom lifts are used for landscaping projects and are useful for maintenance work on already-completed projects which do not need easy access to the area directly below the jobsite. These lifts could be used for exterior electrical work and to repair piping, as well as difficult to clean areas. Usually knuckle lifts are driven by the employee in the platform with the extended boom.
