Terex Knuckle Boom Lifts
Telescoping Boom Lifts
Telescoping booms lifts are designed to mount a work bucket on an extendable, straight arm which is located on a rotating turntable. Usually, telescoping boom lifts are used for jobs that need reaching at maximum height, exceeding other types of lifts. For example, workers can carry out exterior renovations or repairs on buildings of medium height but utilizing these lifts instead of having the extra work of setting up an outside elevator or a pulley system.
The boom lift is only designed to hold one individual. These buckets are better suitable to particular jobs like electrical repair, as opposed to general maintenance or window washing. These lifts are available in electric and gas configurations and are available with both indoor and outdoor tires.
Scissor lifts are named for the cross-braces below the work platform. These braces squeeze together in order to push the platform straight up. Since these kinds of equipment should be directly positioned beneath the work site, these units are way more limited in their use as opposed to boom lifts.
The scissor lift usually has a bigger platform that enables the operator to control the lift to access a bigger work area once the lift platform is raised off the ground. With scissor lifts, all-terrain capability is less of a problem with these types of equipment, since they must sit on flat ground in order to be utilized. Scissor lifts are great for being used for cladding or window installation, since they provide the personnel with the desired mobility; they are also a great alternative for exterior repairs or window cleaning applications.
