Telescopic booms more than any other type of aerial platform have greater horizontal outreach. These types of machinery are ideal for locations which offer limited access in industrial and construction situations.
Telescopic booms have reach capacities varying from 31 feet 8 inches or 9.65 meters to 80 feet and 24.38 meters. These models offer working height up to 14.20 meters or 46 feet to 40.15 meters or 131 feet 2 inches. Telescopic boom nomenclature usually includes a reference to the platform height of the boom in order to know the capacity of the equipment.
Telescopic booms are very productive on the worksite because they provide the torque, traction and speed needed to get the job done. Even if the machines are built huge enough to reach higher, they are still compact enough to fit great in confined spaces. The full-time oscillating axle and the positive traction system provided by the rough-terrain units enable the rugged jobsites to be handled with precision and ease. In addition, some specialized models provide extendable axles that offer stability and retract for easy transportation. There are multiple diesel engine choices offered on the market also.
Operators would be able to maximize their jobsite productivity by picking the right lift to suit their application needs. Additionally, customizing the chosen lift will really help make sure that workers get the specific equipment they need for projects.
Normally, lifts have a range of platform options, starting with the platform size. Operators might have to choose from steel platforms ranging in size from 1.22 meters to 2.44 meters or from 4 to 8 feet. There are a variety of platform accessories available to help modify the lift for its specific use. Platform accessories may consist of the following things: fluorescent tube caddy, half-height mesh, control box cover, auxiliary top railing, work lights, welder leads and tool tray.
On the market these days there are a lot of available attachments and options. Businesses are attempting to diversify their machines as much as possible in order to satisfy all their many different customer needs. It is worth the research to find out what specific alternatives your telescopic boom lift could use.
