Construction Lifts and Their Uses
In this picture we observe a Telescopic boom lift.
Telescopic boom Lift
This type of lift feature an extendable arm that can reach varying heights. Unlike articulated boom lifts, the telescopic boom features a straight arm attached to a freely rotating turntable as you can observe.
The bucket on this lift is typically small, holding one or two people at a time. Telescopic boom lifts are known for their exceptionally long reach and are best suited for specialized work handled by a single worker, like electrical repairs or tree trimming. Most lifts are offered with solid tires because of their puncture resistance and balance.
A boom's lift height is important to consider when selecting a machine. The JLG 400S is one of the manufacturer's bread and butter models, boasting a 40-foot lift and a 600-pound capacity. For more height, JLG's 1500SJ is currently the largest boom lift in the world, with a platform height of 185 feet. The Genie S-60X offers a 1,000-pound capacity for heavier jobs.
