Manitou Aerial Lifts

Manitou Aerial Lifts

There are several applications that require a lot more reach than the usual job. For these instances, the ever-growing range of telescopic and articulating booms is a good alternative. Electric or engine powered or bi-energy booms are great for indoor, rough terrain or outdoor applications, so basically, there is a suitable boom lift available for every kind of task. Just take the time to figure out what kind of cargo you would be handling and what types of capacities you would need to get the task done.

As aerial work platforms, the articulating booms use multiple boom sections which articulate or hinge. These machinery provide a maximum reach of 21 feet 5 inches or 6.25 meters to 21.26 meters or 69 feet 9 inches. These models could vary in height between 11.14 meters and 36 feet or 141 feet or 43.15 meters. Articulated boom units are usually classified by horizontal reach and by platform height.

To access work places over barriers and obstacles like equipment or shelving, the articulating booms are often utilized. They have less horizontal outreach compared to telescopic booms, but the articulating booms provide better positioning and greater versatility. This allows better access for overhead work areas from tight places and from aisles. Throughout the range of articulating booms, most of them are able to hold weight capacities of as much as 227 kg or 500 pounds. These machinery are able to easily lift 2 operators and their tools and at times extra supplies.

There are both industrial and rough terrain articulating booms, similar to scissor lifts. Industrial units are often equipped with non-marking tires and are intended for indoor operation. The majority of articulated boom manufacturers use clean burning fuels such as DC electric power or LPG or liquid propane gas for their industrial models. AC drive system technology is popular in industrial forklifts, though it is new to the aerial work platforms market. This technology combines 3-phase AC drive motors with DC batteries for more continuous control of turning, braking and drive speed and overall energy efficient operation.

Rough-terrain units are particularly designed to negotiate rugged construction site locations. With features like diesel engines, lug-tread tires, an oscillating axle and 4-wheel drive, these specialized items are common-place on rough-terrain articulating booms. These heavy-duty extras are what make these equipment able to withstand the rough environments they operate in.
