Terex Articulated Boom Lifts

Kinds of Boom Lifts or Construction Lifts
A boom lift is a piece of machine that enables workers to carry out jobs without having to build a scaffolding. They are used to do maintenance work, to work on elevated structures and are common machines found in warehouse and factory environment also.

Usually, construction lifts offer powered and wheeled bases which are capable of driving to the work place and have a platform on them that is responsible for elevating workers. There are lots of different types of lifts and each and every one is suited to different kinds of tasks and environment.

Bucket Trucks
Bucket trucks, which are usually known as "cherry-pickers", carry a long boom that has a bucket connected at the end. This bucket area is where a worker could stand. Usually, bucket trucks are utilized by landscapers and by utility workers. Landscapers often use these types of machinery to cut trees.

Bucket trucks are outfitted with a boom assembly that is mounted on a standard truck, and this means these lifts could travel on roads at normal traffic speeds. This mobility greatly increases the area they can efficiently service. This is especially vital for power companies. For instance, a lot of these businesses use cherry pickers to elevate employees up so they can reach and work on transmission lines. The buckets have to be checked frequently and correctly insulated since they are working close to potential shock hazards.

Articulated boom lifts are also referred to as "knuckle lifts", and have a work platform which is mounted on an arm that can bend so as to reach around obstacles. The base of the lift contains a turntable and is capable of turning 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-finished projects which do not need easy access to the area right below the jobsite. These lifts can be utilized for exterior electrical work and to repair piping, as well as areas that are hard to clean. Normally knuckle lifts are driven by the worker in the platform with the extended boom.
