What is a Boom Lift?

A boom lift is a type of aerial lift that allows you to have both horizontal and vertical reach for any jobs that you need to complete at a height. Boom lifts are the highest reaching elevated work platform; and they allow your staff to be raised and moved both horizontally and vertically to reach their desired worksite. They tend to usually be used for construction, industrial and maintenance projects outdoors but can also be used indoors depending on the type of boom lift you are using. 

They are often used for jobs like painting, installing signage, general building maintenance tasks, erecting scaffolding, and lighting works amongst many other projects. They differ from scissor lifts which only go up and down, and as a boom lift can move both horizontally and vertically they allow you to reach areas that you wouldn’t be able to with a scissor lift. They are fitted with wheels so that you can manoeuvre them into the best position possible to reach your desired location and height. 

Boom lifts are the highest reaching elevated work platforms available; allowing you to reach even the toughest and highest areas for your job. This makes them a practical option for jobs and projects where you need to reach heights that other lifting platforms don’t allow you to get to. They also offer you increased flexibility, as they can move precisely to reach even the toughest areas – and can move both horizontally and vertically allowing you full control.

They are also available in a variety of fuel operation types such as diesel, battery and electric. Diesel booms tend to be used outdoors and battery booms tend to be used for indoor work. They are also excellent as they can be extended or retracted – making them ideal for any kind of job, regardless of the height that you need to reach.
