What Is a Boom Truck?
To recover heavy things or to transport supplies to areas and places which are not normally accessible, boom trucks will use a winch. For example, they are commonly used to reach the top of a building, maneuvering supplies over a ditch or to a hillside.

A big truck is outfitted with a boom winch. This is mounted in the bed of the truck and then it is capable of moving construction items and other equipment from street-side to a particular place. There is another boom truck design which is outfitted with a cherry picker. This version allows arborists to easily access treetops.

The Vehicle
The Stinger BT 3063 model has a 113-foot reach and is outfitted with outriggers and stabilizers. A boom truck could range from an aerial work platform which is moved by a hydraulic lifting device that is mounted on the bed, up to a Class 8 tractor-trailer rig with a bucket. It is also possible to have a modified boom lift manufactured for a specific buyer's needs.

Cherry Picker
Cherry pickers or bucket booms allow employees to reach excellent heights. Normally, cherry pickers or buckets move workers from the ground up to high places such as treetops, the sides of a building, up utility poles or for fire department rescue and firefighting.

Location
The boom platform could be operated from the truck's cab by remote. Either the boom is mounted on the bed of a large truck or on a separate trailer. Booms that are bigger require outriggers that extend horizontally from the truck in order to level out and stabilize the crane throughout its operation.

Controls
This model of boom truck has a cab-over-engine which has a control cluster that could move the boom from inside the cab. It is normally a panel in the boom itself on the side of the bed.
