The first step is being certain that a cherry picker is actually the machine you need. Some people think they need articulating lifts because of all the great things they heard, but then they find out that a telescopic boom lift would have made a better fit. Such minor details might not seem important at first glance, but they make a huge difference. Let’s consider the two options.
Telescopic VS Articulating Man Lifts.
Telescopic lifts, which are also referred to as straight boom lifts, and articulating boom lifts are the two major models of aerial work platforms that you’ll find on jobsites today. There are a few other odd variations found here and there, but in terms of popularity and functionality, these two are at the top of the list.
They are very similar in a lot of ways but share some key differences. The primary difference between the two is how they reach the heights that they do. The differences in how they rise also impacts the capacities, speed, and functionality of both aerial lifts.
Straight boom lifts are referred to as such because they extend straight outward. They are ideal for work site with limited access. You’ll also find them at sites that require the max possible reach vertically and horizontally.
Articulating boom lifts, on the other hand, rise with multiple straight sections that are connected in a sort of zig-zag pattern. These connections are referred to as knuckles, giving this type of man lift the nickname “knuckle booms”. The primary benefit of an articulating cherry picker is that it can easily navigate the lift over obstacles. The used JLG articulating boom lift happens to be the most common of them all.
