CareLift Equipment has been engineering and making quality rough terrain forklifts since 1962. Each and every day the company strives to help their customers reach their goals and deliver value as they know the bottom line is performance and dependability.
There are 2 general types of boom lifts. These units are articulated boom lifts and straight boom lifts. Normally, these models are hydraulically powered. Most often straight booms are the ideal choice for jobs that need a high reach with no obstructions. The turntable on the equipment could rotate three hundred sixty degrees with an extendable boom. This extendable boom is able to be raised vertically to below horizontal. Because the operator could maneuver and steer the vehicle whilst the boom is fully extended, it is a versatile equipment. These models are available in 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive, as well as propane, gas or diesel configurations.
The articulated boom lifts are used for tasks which require to reach up and over obstacles in order to gain access. These specialized lifts are used for jobs which are not easily completed by straight telescopic booms. These lifts are practically identical to the straight boom lift in the majority of aspects except in the boom's ability to articulate. There are various articulation points on the boom in order to allow it to bend in a variety of different directions allowing it to easily move around any objects within the work site.
Several heavy-duty boom lifts come outfitted with outriggers in order to maintain stability whilst the boom lift is fully extended. The outriggers provide the operator with some extra safety and confidence. Proper training is required prior to utilizing boom lifts in order to guarantee the operator, the jobsite and everybody working in the vicinity stays safe.
The boom lift allows for tasks requiring many man power to be completed in much less time. These machinery have changed the material handling industry and have greatly increased productivity.
