Exploring our Scissor and Boom Lift Ranges for Hire

We know that when you need lifting equipment for a project it is vital that you can access the right kit, to get the job done effectively and efficiently. For nearly 20 years Cherry Picker have been providing standard and bespoke cherry pickers and lifting solutions in the food, construction and pharmaceutical sectors across Ireland. 

We know everything there is to know about lifts and have invested in the newest technology and innovation to provide customers with all the hiring solutions they need. Our many years of expertise make us the go-to company for access equipment and lifting and handling solutions in Ireland.

In this post, we are going to share more details about the different types of scissor and boom lifts you can hire from Cherry Picker. We understand that every customer has their own specific requirements such as lifting height, weight capacity, platform size and access points and we will work with you to ensure we provide the correct option for your project.

Scissor Lifts

We have two types of scissor lift, battery scissors lifts and diesel scissor lifts. They differ in function and use. Battery scissors lifts are great for interior and exterior maintenance. They have a longer run time and are a quieter option for indoor use with non-marking tyres. Examples models include the Genie GS3232 which has a working height of 11.5 metres, the Genie Scissors Lift GS-2632 with a platform height of nearly 8 metres and the UpRight Scissors Lift MX19 with a basket capacity of 227kg and a compact design with stowed dimensions of 7ft height and 5 feet 8 inches length.

Diesel scissors lifts are made for the construction industry with tough four-wheel drive machines. They have positive traction control and are ideal for increasing productivity in demanding outdoor worksites with maximum efficiency. An example is the Genie Scissors Lift GS-5390 RT which is built to tackle the most rigorous jobsite conditions and has on-board diagnostics for easy troubleshooting. It also has a decent alarm as an additional safety feature. 

Boom Lifts

We offer three types of boom lift; diesel articulated boom, battery articulated boom and telescopic boom. Boom lifts are used indoors and outdoors and have both two- and four-wheel drive. Ideal for outdoor construction and industrial applications they have a versatile range of lifting options with a combination of up, out and over positioning capabilities and outreach that’s second to none. 

Examples of diesel boom lifts include the Genie Z45/25 4×4 which has a 6ft inside turning radius for excellent manoeuvrability, an all-steel platform lift for up to 227kg and self-levelling platform for precise positioning and easy operation. There is also the Niftylift HR12 Heightrider with compact dimensions and a reputation for being reliable and versatile.

Battery articulated booms include three machines from Haulotte, NiftyLIft and UpRight. The Haulotte vertical mast boom is the ideal platform for difficult- to-reach places and ideal for maintenance and warehouse stock checks. The Niftylift HR12 Heightrider has a powerful four wheel drive system and is viewed as one of the most complete 12m (40ft) self propelled boom lifts available as it is perfect for reaching up and over all kinds of obstacles. The largest in the range is the UpRight Battery Articulated Boom AB38. It is suitable for indoor and outdoor use with a working height of up to 13.5m, 6.1m working outreach and 5.4m clearance height.

The last model in the Boom lift range is the Genie S85 Telescopic Boom. With a working height of nearly 30 metres (27.9m) It offers 360⁰ continuous rotation turntable for quick positioning and a self-leveling platform with hydraulic platform rotation.
