A boom lift, also known as a cherry picker or aerial lift, is a type of
elevated work platform. There is a bucket at the end of a
hydraulic-powered lifting arm which carries the operator. They have a
multitude of uses and applications including construction projects,
building maintenance, landscaping (tree pruning), window cleaning, and
painting. You'll also see boom lifts being utilized by telephone
companies, cable companies, and fire departments.
We rent boom lifts ranging from 30 feet to 125 feet in length and
feature gas, diesel, or electric power. We rent two types of boom lifts -
straight (telescopic) and articulated. Straight boom lifts (stick
booms), as their name indicates, extend vertically reaching working
heights of 30 to 131 feet, depending on the model. If you're looking for
maximum vertical reach as well as added horizontal reach, an
articulated boom is your best option. Along with the added horizontal
capability, articulated booms are well suited for areas with tight
spaces and limited access - perfect for reaching up and over obstacles.
