What Precisely Is an Articulating Boom Lift?
An articulating boom lift is an industrial machinery which is used in a many different applications from electrical repair to construction. These highly maneuverable lifts make working at heights much safer and efficient.
Knuckle boom lifts are another term used for articulating boom lifts. These machinery could reach heights from 36 feet to 131 feet, depending on the model of the specific lift.
Articulating boom lifts are designed with multiple bending elbows. These are in conjunction with extendable arms that allow the articulating lifts to reach over things and outwards and also upwards.
Articulating vs. Telescoping
Straight or telescoping boom lifts have a working height which ranges from forty six to eighty six feet. Unlike articulating lifts, these ones do not contain elbows and extend in a straight line. This simplifies some of the lift training but also restricts the areas that are able to be reached with it.
The articulating boom lift design makes them the most able to negotiate around obstacles and objects. These lifts are convenient for indoor use, offered in electrical models and have zero tail swing. These particular types of lifts are perfect for crowded work situations.
