Telescoping vs. Articulating
Telescoping or straight boom lifts have a working height that ranges from 46 to 86 feet. Not like articulating lifts, these ones do not contain elbows and extend in a straight line. This simplifies some of the lift training but also restricts the areas which are able to be reached with it.
