The Area’s Premier Boom Lift Supplier
Oftentimes, a boom lift is the only way to get the job done. A boom lift will serve you well when you need aerial lifting equipment with an impressive horizontal reach. Miami Industrial Trucks Inc. has an inventory of boom lifts in Dayton, Findlay, Toledo, and Troy, Ohio. Here, you can learn more about boom lifts and our services surrounding boom lifts, such as parts, repairs, maintenance, and training.
What Is a Boom Lift?
You might have heard boom lifts, often called cherry pickers. Boom lifts are aerial platforms that make it easier for workers to reach heights. What separates boom lifts from other types of aerial work platforms is their horizontal reach. While other types of lifts, such as scissor lifts, only give the occupant control over their horizontal movement, boom lifts can move in any direction. This makes them a better choice when you need high levels of maneuverability in the operation of a lift.
How to Choose the Right Boom Lift for the Job
Each make and model of boom lift will have different specifications and capabilities. You should consider various factors when choosing a boom lift for your job. Some of the things that you should think about before you purchase or rent a boom lift include:
- Maximum working height
- Maximum horizontal reach
- Below-ground reach
- Platform capacity
- Machine length and width
- Size of platform
- Power source
- Terrain capabilities
The Most Common Uses for Boom Lifts
While a boom lift can be used for any task that requires access to an elevated area, there are some frequent uses for boom lifts. If you are not sure whether or not a boom lift will work for your intended use, a member of our team would be glad to help you figure it out. Even if a boom lift is not the ideal piece of equipment for the job, we will have the equipment you need. Some of the most common uses for boom lifts include:
- Erecting scaffolding
- Painting walls and ceilings
- Building maintenance (especially on the exterior of buildings)
- Replacing light bulbs or lighting fixtures
- Installing signage
- Repairing or servicing specialized equipment in factories, warehouses, and other industrial facilities
The Types of Boom Lifts
Not all boom lifts are the same. Some are better in certain environments, while others offer telescoping or articulating arms. When selecting a boom lift, you should understand your options. The most common types of boom lifts include:
- Diesel/Gas Boom Lifts: Boom lifts with gas or diesel-powered engines provide heavy-duty lifting power. These outdoor-only boom lifts produce emissions, but they offer more low-end torque and towing power than most other options.
- Electric Boom Lifts: Electric boom lifts are often helpful because of their compact size and lack of emissions. Electric boom lifts are the perfect option for indoor jobs and maximum maneuverability in tight spaces.
- Hybrid Boom Lifts: Hybrid boom lifts give you the best of both worlds. They produce the power of a gas/diesel-powered lift when you need it and can operate purely off electrical power when that is necessary.
- Telescoping Boom Lifts: Telescoping boom lifts are designed to give operators maximum horizontal reach. When working in areas with limited access, telescoping boom lifts will get you to the trickiest of spots.
- Articulating Boom Lifts: Also called knuckle booms, articulating boom lifts can take you up and over obstacles and give you more flexibility in both horizontal and vertical movement.
- Atrium Boom Lifts: Atrium lifts are different because they do not have wheels. They move with the assistance of tracks like you might expect to find on an excavator. This gives them more all-terrain capabilities and more stability. They often have articulating arms as well.
