Manitou Aerial Lifts

Manitou Aerial Lifts

There are several applications which entail a lot more reach than the regular job. For these instances, the ever-growing variety of telescopic and articulating booms is a good alternative. Engine-powered or bi-energy or electric booms are great for rough terrain, outdoor or indoor use, so basically, there is a suitable boom lift available for every type of task. Simply take the time to figure out what kinds of capacities you will need to get the task done and what type of cargo you would be handling.

Articulating booms are described as aerial work platforms which utilize multiple boom parts that articulate or hinge. These equipment provide a maximum reach of 21 feet 5 inches or 6.25 meters to 69 feet 9 inches or 21.26 meters. These models can vary in height between 11.14 meters and 36 feet or 43.15 meters or 141 feet. Usually, articulated boom models are classified by horizontal reach and by platform height.

To access work places over barriers and obstacles including machinery or shelving, the articulating booms are often used. They have less horizontal outreach than telescopic booms, but the articulating booms provide greater versatility and better positioning. This allows better access for overhead work places from aisles and from tight places. Throughout the range of articulating booms, most of them can hold weight capacities of up to 227 kilograms or 500 lbs. These machines could easily lift 2 operators and their tools and at times extra materials.

There are both industrial and rough terrain articulating booms, similar to scissor lifts. Industrial models are usually equipped with non-marking tires and are made for indoor operation. Most of articulated boom manufacturers use clean burning fuels like DC electric power or LPG or liquid propane gas for their industrial units. AC drive system technology is common in industrial forklifts, though it is new to the aerial work platforms market. This technology combines DC batteries with 3-phase AC drive motors for more continuous control of turning, drive speed and braking and overall energy efficient operation.

The rough terrain models have been engineered specifically to work on rugged work sites. These machines have features like diesel engines, lug-tread tires, 4-wheel drive and an oscillating axle. These are common specialized things used on rough-terrain articulating booms. These heavy-duty add-ons are what make these machines able to withstand the rough environments they operate in.
