New & Used Articulated Boom Lifts

What is an articulated Boom?

An articulated boom, also known as a cherry picker, is a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP) with sections of the boom that move or ‘articulate’ independently.

This movement allows you to move up and over obstacles, providing precision and versatility in accessing hard to reach areas.

Articulating booms come in a range of working heights and outreach, which make them suitable for many applications. These machines are also referred to as ‘up-and-over-booms’ or ‘knuckle booms.’

This type of machine is widely used within a large range of industries, as it allows you to lift both workers, tools required to areas of height safely.

Types of articulated Boom lift

  • Electric articulated boom lift
  • Bi-energy articulated boom lift
  • Diesel articulated boom lift

 

Benefits of articulated boom lifts

  • Very good manoeuvrability
  • Multiple functioning joints, and the jib adds working length, for those hard to reach areas
  • The boom can be positioned in a variety of ways
  • Most booms have zero tail swing, depending on the model
  • They are quick to get in to position and get to work

 

What applications are articulated booms good for?

  • Working in confined spaces
  • Working indoors, as the electric options provide clean burning fuel and non-marking tyres
  • When you need to reach over an obstacle or barrier
  • Rough terrain with the 4×4 options
  • When you need extra reach, as some booms come with an extension called a ‘jib’. This adds another point of movement and allows the boom to be even more flexible in tight working spaces

 

What is the difference between an articulated boom and a telescopic boom?

With so many access platform options available, it can be tricky to know which one is best for your particular application.

An articulated boom is ideal for confined spaces as the articulating joint, allows the machine to go up and over obstacles and barriers. These are also referred to as ‘knuckle booms’ or ‘up and over booms’.

A telescopic boom extends its reach telescopically, so in a straight line, therefore offering greater horizontal reach. These are also known as stick booms because of their straight appearance.

The joint or hinge in the middle of the booms here is the defining factor between the two.

 

What training do I need to use an articulated boom lift?

In order to operate an articulated boom, you will need category 3b IPAF training. We can provide training in just the area you require, or we can provide IPAF training for 2 subjects, which will qualify you to operate machines that fall into the 1a, 1b, 3a and 3b categories, such as a scissor lift.

If you have previously been IPAF trained, we also provide refresher IPAF training.

AFI deliver industry leading training and are recognised as one of the leading IPAF training providers in the UK. We offer training through our AFI Training brand.
