Mobile Mounted Boom Lifts – Flexible Hire Options

An alternative for self-propelled cherry pickers

'Drive me on a B!'

On just a B license, you can hire one of these fantastic self-drive machines. Here at Cherry Picker we have been supplying and hiring UDrive/ Self Drive units to the Irish market for over 10 years. These light vehicle (under 3.5 tonne) units are an ideal alternative to standard self-propelled cherry pickers because unlike traditional boom lifts you can move the units from site to site allowing you to do several jobs on the same day.

Truck and van mounted booms are ideal for those that work in areas relating to signage, CCTV installation, tree surgeons, building facade maintenance, filming, sports events and festivals.

 External Building Maintenance & Repairs

Cherry Picker’s UDrive machines are the ideal solution to access machinery for carrying out external building maintenance. These self-drive units allow you to carry out your work on various locations on site with minimal down time for setting up in between. Our UDrive's are praised by window cleaners due to their ability to setup on the roadside and their extensive outreach counteracts any obstructions at ground level.

Signage/ CCTV/ Streetlight maintenance

UDrives are the perfect transportation when you are working at a height in multiple locations throughout the day. You can leave your own vehicle with us upon the collection of the machine and take the UDrive with you for the duration of your hire. Cherry Picker’s UDrives can allow you to be driving one minute and then working in the air within three minutes! You can never underestimate the efficiency of a self-drive unit.

Tree Surgery/Hedge Trimming

Our UDrive’s are the machine of choice among tree surgeons working on the road side. The compact and flexible nature of these machines gives you options to park up directly beneath your working area or, if ground space is restricted, you can park at some distance away from your working area and the impressive outreach of the UDrive will cover you to extend over any obstructions or unlevel ground.

Chassis and Van Mounted Hoists

If you can't decide what unit is best suited to your requirements, we are more than happy to go through your requirements and to outline the various options that are available to you - without it getting complicated.

At Cherry Picker, we understand that this may be your first time hiring an aerial platform so you don't need to be concerned about choosing the wrong machine! We will make sure that you are supplied with a machine that will work to suit the requirements that you give us.

Whether you require the storage space of a van mount or the extra working height that is available in a chassis/truck-mounted unit, we will have the hoist just for you.

Van Mounted Boom Lifts

Cherry Picker are proud to offer van mounted hoists that boast a working height of 15 metres and also a maximum possible outreach of 8.2 metres.

Van mounted access platforms are ideal for those working with an array of tools who are also looking for that little bit of extra storage space.

Van mounted UDrive's are ideal for those working with outdoor electrical repairs, property & facility management and sign posting.
