What are Articulating Diesel Boom Lifts

An articulating boom lifts are MEWPs that have hydraulic arm sections that pivot on one another allowing the machine to get up and around obstacles. Each boom section of the lift is able to be moved independently, offering greater manoeuvrability in tight spaces.

As the machine is run on diesel, it is able to run for a longer period of time and offers reduced down time due to not having to recharge any batteries overnight. Because of this it is a preferred choice for the construction industry among others.

Boom Lift Pros

  • Higher Working Heights – Boom lifts are often able to reach much higher than scissor lifts.
  • Better Manoeuvrability – Boom lifts are able to be positioned in a much wide range of spaces thanks to their articulating arms compared to Telescopic boom lifts which require more open space to operate.

Boom Lift Cons

  • Smaller platform sizes – Due to the nature of the machines, they have much smaller platforms than scissor lifts
  • Lower lift capacities – Again, boom lifts often have much lower lift capacities than their scissor lift alternatives.
  • Short horizontal reach – Articulating booms offer much less horizontal outreach in comparison to Telescopic boom lifts
