Boom Lift Specs
A boom lift is a type of aerial lift that extends both vertically and horizontally. This gives it more reach and accessibility than other aerial lifts, like scissor lifts, which only extend vertically. The boom arm of this equipment has a bucket attachment that holds the operator and any necessary materials.
There are both straight and articulating boom lifts available. Choose one depending on the amount of mobility you need. Both options are designed to help operators access tight spaces that are cluttered with obstacles.
Boom lifts are known for their intense reach. These machines typically have a lift height between 150 and 185 feet. This depends on the make and model of the equipment.
The thin design of the boom arm makes it easy for the operator to navigate the lift around beams and bars to access a precise spot. This is key to many operations, especially those at crowded building sites.
Just like lift height, load capacity varies. Most boom lifts have a load capacity between 500 and 1,000 pounds. This number will be displayed on the load capacity chart of the equipment.
Because the boom arm is multi-directional, these machines don’t have the same level of stability as equipment that only moves vertically. This results in less platform space and lower load capacity. However, a boom lift is easier to maneuver and can extend much higher than other options.
