If you’re looking for Cherry Picker hire Derby, it is important to understand what you’re hiring. If you aren’t sure what cherry pickers are or how they operate, carry on reading to learn the basic ins and outs of the cherry picker and why you should get your cherry picker hire Derby from Aeriel Platforms Limited.
A cherry picker is a piece of machinery with the primary use of lifting personnel and equipment into the air to perform work at above-average heights. The basic structure of a cherry picker involves an extended telescopic arm that supports a bucket-like surface. This bucket is the most identifiable part of the cherry picker. It is the platform that supports the workers and the equipment and it is how you will reach the heights to perform your work.
Cherry Pickers are usually mounted onto another vehicle or machines as they can’t be moved by themselves. Anyone who operates a cherry picker will need to station the machine before the tasks, then remove it once the task is complete so it can be moved to the next location. This makes cherry pickers great for the smaller jobs that don’t need move movement.
There are many reasons why you may choose to use a cherry picker. With the heights that they can reach, cherry pickers are great for cleaning windows, repairing roofs on buildings or installing a sign on a building. No matter what your needs are, we can supply you with cherry picker hire Derby at any time.
Our cherry pickers have some of the highest average working heights out of any of our access platforms. This makes them great for the trickiest jobs that would otherwise be just out of reach.
The origins of the cherry picker can be dated back to the middle of the 20th century. As the name implies, cherry pickers were originally designed to pick cherries and other fruits that grew at a height. Whilst they are still commonly used for fruit picking purposes, they can be found now across all branches of society.
In the modern world of machinery, they are used to help workers perform tasks that would otherwise require a ladder or scaffolding, an option that is far less safe than our trusted cherry picker.

One type of cherry picker that we offer is our Diesel Cherry Picker. Our Diesel Cherry Pickers are some of the most powerful machines we have.
Diesel cherry pickers are built for tackling some of the toughest challenges a workforce can face.
Our diesel boom cherry pickers are some of the tallest machines we offer at Aeriel Platforms Ltd. Our tallest model is our JLG 1500AJP Super Boom which reaches a maximum height of 48.15 metres with a maximum lift capacity of 227 Kilograms. This makes it the ideal cherry picker for the toughest of tasks.
If your project involves reaching massive heights and carrying lots of equipment then this super boom is for you.
We have over a dozen models and brands in our diesel cherry picker range. Whether you want a Skyjack, a Manitou or a Genie, we have the perfect machine for you. We will aid you in carefully selecting the right cherry picker for you to make sure that there is no fuss when it comes to getting your job done.

The next type of Cherry Picker we offer is our electric model. Compared to our diesel cherry picker range, our electric range of cherry pickers are smaller but more flexible. This means that whilst they may not reach the same heights as our diesel cherry pickers, they are better at reaching tight corners and moving in more compact spaces.
We have several models and makes in our electric range, including Snorkel, JLG and Skyjack. These models are designed to have longer battery lives, meaning that you can get more work done with a single charge.
One of the big benefits of using electric cherry pickers is the lack of emissions they produce. At APL, we are determined to help the environment by cutting down all emissions from our vehicles. By using electric cherry pickers, we are cutting down on both noise and air pollution. This is particularly important as our electric cherry picker boom lifts are primarily used indoors, leading to less disturbance and less harmful substances being released into the air.

If you’re looking for more than what our standard diesel range offers, check out our super fleet to explore our superboom division, where our models provide even more height, power and support.
At APL, we take pride in exceeding customers’ expectations in every area of safety. From Pre-Delivery Inspections to Daily Run-Ups and Tests, we’re strongly committed to safety within our cherry picker hire Derby. We offer full LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations) inspections, as well as repairs and servicing to keep all machines up to date and in line with the current health and safety regulations. We will perform routine checks on our machines (every 6 months).
We will also perform these checks on your own company cherry pickers to make sure that they are compliant with the Health and Safety at Work act of 1974
As well as carrying out inspections, we also put several measures in place to make every scenario you may find yourself in as safe as possible. One measure we have put in place to further increase safety is to print a QR LOLER code on all of our cherry pickers. These codes allow anyone who scans the cherry picker access to several safety features in the case of an emergency. We put these procedures in place to make sure that we stick to our health and safety guidelines at all times.
We always comply with the Working at Height Legislation from HSE and actively strive to reduce injuries in every work environment. Aerial Platforms Ltd can offer comprehensive training for both industry professionals and beginners alike. We make sure your workforce meets all health standards.
Whilst we are very proud of our health and safety records, we acknowledge that our customers may have some concerns when considering hiring one of our cherry pickers. We understand that our machines may look intimidating, especially to people who have never used them before.
It may seem like there are many risks involved, especially with the diesel cherry pickers that are primarily used outdoors. These situations may naturally cause more concern as you may think that the weather will have an impact on the cherry picker.
