Articulated Boom Lifts: What They Can Do For Your Business

Business owners are always looking for ways to save time and money. When it comes to lifting heavy equipment, that usually means buying a more expensive, heavy-duty crane. However, a smaller and more affordable alternative called an articulated boom lift might be a better solution. An articulated boom lift is a smaller, more affordable lifting device that can tilt, rotate, and pivot. These types of lifts are great for lifting light to medium-weight objects and can be used with a variety of different rigging methods. Read on to learn how an articulated boom lift can be a great addition to any business.

1. What is an articulated boom lift?

An articulated boom lift is a type of crane that is able to move in a number of different ways. They can rotate, tilt, and move up and down. They can be used in a wide range of industries, including construction, manufacturing, transportation, and warehousing. The major benefit of this type of crane is the ability to move the boom and the arm in any direction that you need. This allows the crane to be more efficient and productive for a wide range of tasks. This type of crane is also less expensive than any other type of crane.

2. How it works

An articulated boom lift is a type of lift that has a boom arm that can be extended out to a height of around 20 feet. They are used to transport loads and objects in areas that are not accessible to other types of lifts. They are often used by construction workers and people who work with heavy materials. These lifts are also used to transport people. The benefits of this type of lift are that they are safer for workers because they are less likely to fall from greater heights. They are also more effective in transporting materials and people.

3. How to use an articulated boom lift

Articulated boom lifts are an essential tool for any construction site. They can be used for many purposes including lifting materials, moving heavy objects, and stabilizing construction sites. These tools are also commonly used in warehouse and manufacturing operations. They can also be used for a variety of other tasks such as moving light objects and compacting garbage. The best use for an articulated boom lift is for tasks that require a lot of precision. However, there are many other tasks that can be done with an articulated boom lift. The best way to use an articulated boom lift is to first understand what it can do. This will help you decide which tasks you will be able to complete with an articulated boom lift.

4. Conclusion.

Articulated boom lifts are a great way to transport your materials and equipment to different heights without having to worry about ladders or other types of equipment. They are also a great way to move heavy and cumbersome objects without the risk of accidents. If you are in the construction industry, these lifts can be a great asset to your company. They are also a great tool for professionals in the field of demolition and construction.

Z series Boom’s:-

Articulating boom lifts have a small move, but a big reach. They’re a Z-style aerial lift, meaning the boom sections of their arm can move independently so you can maneuver the next section to go around or over obstacles. For this reason, they’re sometimes called up-and-over booms.

They’re ideal for hard-to-reach and small areas because of their design, zero tail swing and small base. Many articulating lift rentals are also compatible with boom extensions or a jib. These extensions let you add another section to extend your reach even further.

Other compatible accessories for boom lifts that can make your job easier include:

  • Work lights
  • Tool tray
  • Self-closing gate
  • AC generator

Our boom lifts for rent are either battery- or diesel-powered. Different power options help you meet your project needs. Indoor projects in a closed area, for example, benefit from a battery-powered articulating boom rather than a diesel-powered one.

If your next project includes tight spaces and obstacles, then an articulating boom lift is likely the right lift to get the job done.

Small contractors and businesses rent boom lifts for a variety of reasons. Some of the most common uses of up-and-over booms include:

  • Roof Work
  • Building construction
  • Mechanical, electrical or other maintenance work

Industrial facilities, like a steel or automotive plant, often need an articulating boom lift because their building has piping and machinery that can make some areas tough to reach during seasonal maintenance. Other conditions for renting an articulating boom lift include:

  • Congested or tight work areas that would be difficult for other lifts to reach
  • Short-term, seasonal or infrequent need of an up-and-over lift
  • Indoor projects with various obstacles

Renting an articulating boom lift is also helpful if you’re looking to lower your maintenance and storage costs, as well as the time you spend repairing and maintaining your equipment. If a business only does seasonal maintenance, for example, owning an up-and-over lift is more time-consuming than renting one.

SPECIALISED SX-135 XC :-

Telescopic boom lifts are engineered to offer greater horizontal outreach than any other type of aerial platform, a super boom can be especially useful at jobsites like an oil and gas refinery, where workers need to not only consider height, but horizontal reach when trying to work around pipes and tall structures to access hard-to-reach areas. Other utilities also have similar limitations that can be overcome by big booms with their sizable range of motion. Some sites have found that keeping a big boom on site can cut back on time needed for repairs, which can be critical when trying to maintain energy supplies for customers.
Other tasks including bridge inspections or ski lift maintenance also benefit from the horizontal reach of a telescopic, high-reaching boom. The Genie SX-135 XC boom lift, for example, has a horizontal reach of up to 90 ft (27.43 m), which means the chassis of the boom can be set up on stable, even ground while workers inspect a bridge over a road or river, or fix a ski lift on a slope.
When selecting the right equipment for your extreme, high-reaching application, picking the right equipment is critical, as it is with any other application. Here are a few more things to consider when determining which big boom is the right machine for your job:

  • First one is Weight. Think about what kind of materials or equipment you’ll need. Heavy-lift Genie XC models, with an industry-leading dual lift capacity of 660 lb (300 kg) unrestricted and 1,000 lb (454 kg) restricted, can access jobs up to 141 ft (43.15 m) with the SX-135 XC.
  • Second one is Space. It’s not just about the height and reach once you’re inside a space. Also, consider how to get the equipment to the work site. Genie offers a Building Information Modeling (BIM) library that can help customers determine how to get a machine to where it’s needed, even before the boom arrives on site.
  • Third one is Specialization. A telescopic boom Lift used for glass installation, for example, may need different options than one used for welding or general construction. And, with a variety of boom lift options and accessories that are compatible with even higher-reaching Genie booms, each boom can be adapted to meet the needs of specific work sites, safely optimizing productivity.

IDEA’S FOR BOOM LIFT RENTAL:-

  • A boom lift has a platform or bucket at the end of a hydraulically controlled extended arm that is attached to a grounded base.
  • The arms hydraulic control allows it to extend both horizontally and vertically to carry people, materials and tools to extended heights.
  • The grounded base of boom lifts are fitted with wheels to provide maneuverability to allow operator to move the unit into the best position to reach the work height and location.
  • Articulating boom lifts provide increased flexibility and maneuverability when completing work.
  • Their multiple arm design allows the operator platform and basket to be precisely moved to complete works in hard to reach or confined spaces.
  • The joints on a boom lift allow the boom to be extended or retracted as necessary.
  • This adjustable size makes it easier to bring the boom lift into any work area regardless of size.
  • Depending on the job requirements boom lift buckets and work platforms can be rated to carry single or double operators to allow the work to be completed.
  • Boom lifts are available with multiple fuel types including diesel, battery electric and even hybrid units.
  • Diesel lifts are ideal for use outside on construction sites where the extra power from the diesel engine easily moves the unit across uneven ground.
  • Battery electric units are exhaust fume free and quote so can be used safely indoors.
  • Hybrid units offer the ultimate flexible lift solution as their fuel source can be switched based on the work area allowing the same unit to operate in all conditions indoors and outdoors.
  • The multiple hydraulic arms of articulating boom lifts allow the operator platform or bucket to move over, under or around obstacles.
  • This allows operators to access all areas regardless of obstacles.
  • While the primary purpose of a boom lift sounds simple, trying to decide which model is best for your needs requires detailed planning. Some boom lift models reach much higher elevations, while others are more versatile in hard-to-reach areas. Both of these factors are critical when selecting which boom lift is right for you.
  • Platform size should be calculated by your ideal platform size by determining how many workers will be aboard and how much material and tools they will take with them.
  • Most boom lifts are powered either by electricity or diesel fuel. Indoor applications favor electricity, while it’s often more practical to use diesel-powered lifts for outdoor work.
  • If you plan to use your lift frequently, purchasing a boom lift can be more beneficial than getting a rental. However, renting is the best way to go if you need to complete a job that’s once and done or if you’re working on a project for just a few days or weeks.

How safety Boom Lift is ?

Boom lifts keep workers stable as it lifts them upwards. However, there are some safety risks. Workers are up high, and they are sometimes extended out from the base at an angle. Here are four key safety risks when using a boom lift:

  • The most dangerous threat when using a boom lift is falling. Workers must move carefully when in the basket and move the arm at a slow, cautious pace. To help prevent falls, workers should always wear a safety harness that connects them to the basket. Railings around the basket can also help workers stay safe.
  • Workers can extend the arm of a boom lift up and out from the wheeled base. This creates a tipping hazard if the arm is extended past a safe angle. Also, wind gusts can push the boom lift over. Boom lift operators must understand that the lift becomes less stable the more they extend the arm. It’s important to be aware of weather conditions, the total weight in the basket, and other factors that may increase the risk of tipping.
  • The operator can move both the base and the arm of the boom lift. This movement increases the risk for collisions both on the ground and in the air. Operators must be aware of their surroundings to avoid aerial and ground-level obstacles.
  • Boom lifts are often used for aerial electrical work. While the lift makes it easier to complete this work, there is an increased risk of electric shock. The basket is usually made of metal, which can transfer electricity to workers if you and your crew don’t take proper precautions.

ELECTRIC BOOM LIFT:-

We all know how important sustainability is when running a business, especially in industries where it is difficult to find eco-friendly solutions and alternatives. For this reason alone, it may be helpful to select an electric aerial work site. However, these machines have many benefits for you and your business such as cost savings and increased performance. Read on to find out the benefits that all electric AWPs offer.

Since the electric boom lift has fewer components than the diesel engine and the electric motor does not operate at idle, there is less chance of breakdown due to the lack of a heated hydraulic system. Since the electric boom lift does not use fuel, you do not have to depend on fuel quality or worry about engine oil leaks or checks. In addition, operators do not have to spend time purchasing fuel and filling the tank.

Electricity is cheaper than fuel! This will save you money. Also, the maintenance of our electric motors is minimal.

Electric boom lift allows for easier and faster inspection because there is no check on engine oil, cooling water, etc., and less wear on the hydraulic components (the electric motor only rotates when movement is required), which means you are less likely. You will have to pay to replace parts of the AWP

In addition, to service and maintain the new generation diesel engines require special equipment that costs extra money. Overall, even with a hybrid machine, only one system needs to be maintained, leaving less room for additional costs.

You can get more out of the electric machine! It can be used indoors and outdoors. In addition, you will gain the ability to work in areas with CO2 emissions restrictions. If you have noise restrictions on your workplace (i.e. near hospitals or in urban areas before and after work hours), you can resume your work with quiet power load.

You can help make our planet a better place for everyone to live! Knowing that you feel good and make environmentally responsible decisions can help you position your company as an innovative and green organization for your employees and customers.

TRANSPORTATION SAFETY OF BOOM LIFT:-

Booms lifts are common equipment on a variety of different jobsites. But before you can start working with a boom, you have to get it to the jobsite. To do this safely and efficiently, there are some important considerations.

The most important thing to do as you prepare your Genie lift for transport is to check the operator manual, which includes a step-by-step guide to prepare your particular boom for transport, as well as any specific issues you may encounter. 

Before you start the important steps of tying the boom lift down, you’ll want to make sure the lift is loaded correctly and that you’re using the right equipment to transport it. When positioned correctly on a transport trailer, the boom’s platform floor should be horizontal to the transport trailer bed. If that can’t be achieved due to the length of the boom or trailer, check with the operator manual for further guidance.


Once the boom lift is loaded, look over the entire machine for any loose or unsecured items. Always use a turntable rotation lock pin, checking to make sure the key switch is in the “off” position and then remove the key before beginning transport.

Next, it’s time to secure the platform. The boom’s platform should be in the stowed position before securing it to the trailer. Nylon straps should be placed parallel to the machine’s strap guides, taking care that you don’t use too much downward force to secure them. Put some sort of force-absorbing material, such as foam, rubber or wood, opposite the nylon strap to reduce any movement of the straps during transport.

The chassis of the boom lift also must be secured to the transportation platform using a minimum of six chains. Make sure the chains have ample load capacity for and adjust the rigging to prevent any damage to the chains or the lift.

After the lift arrives at the jobsite, you’ll want to think about how to unload it safely. If you’re unloading the boom on a public road, extra precautions need to be taken, such as the use of warning cones, hazard tape, signs and flag personnel. Any one of these options can help you safely unload the transport trailer and prevent harm to worksite personnel as well as drivers on the road.
