The boom lift will have a telescopic extension or an articulating arm for the purpose of raising individuals or materials. These machines are normally utilized in utility applications as well as in the construction business. The boom lifts are classed in the "aerial equipment" category.
Telescopic booms are known to have a straight arm that increases in height and extends in length. Additionally, articulating booms are designed to be raised, but provide a multi-piece arm for the ability of reaching an elevated place or work platform. Both telescopic booms and articulating booms could be self-contained with their own drive trains, or could be mounted on vehicles or trailers. Several models use wheels, while other designs have stabilizing legs or tracks.
The telehandler has a telescopic boom which incorporated into the machinery. These boom lifts are very simple to maneuver all over a construction location due to their design being outfitted with drive trains and wheels.
Choosing the proper boom to meet your specific requirements means analyzing specific features and product specifications. Like for instance, the width horizontal reach, working height and the load or lift capacity are standard measurements to think about. The various platform designs as well as the power system options are other important features to consider.
Boom lift platforms are usually made from steel, and would often have a swing gate for walk-in access or a sliding, mid-rail gate. Some boom lift styles provide tri-entry features that provide sliding mid-rail entrances on the front of the platform as well as both ends of the platform. Platform accessories include travel alarms, welder leads, additional railings and air lines. Work lights and tool trays are available as well. When it comes to power options, some units are available with 3-phase AC generator to allow welding operations. The generator can be hydraulic-driven or belt-driven, which depends on the model.
In terms of engine options, potential features and tire types, boom lift models vary greatly. The tires on a boom lift can be filled with air or foam, for example and they could be categorized as non-marking. There are available models that are equipped with rubber tires as well. The engine on a boom lift could use gasoline or diesel fuel. These machinery could be outfitted with a cold-weather package. This package often comes with accessories like: a battery blanket and synthetic motor oil. There are many different styles and extra features available for boom lifts in order to ensure they are suitable for certain settings.
