There are numerous varieties of Manlifts existing, though they all share the same fundamental purpose, lifting equipment and employees to do above-ground work. Man Lifts are commonly made use of in retail stores, warehouses, manufacturing plants, construction, for utility work and in any application where the work must be completed in a hard-to-reach location.

Kinds of Man Lifts
There are 3 main types of Manlifts available comprising Scissor Lifts, Boom Lifts and Personnel Lifts. The Personnel lifts are vertical travel buckets intended for single-user situations. They are the most inexpensive option for single-user operations that require only vertical travel. Scissor Lifts are flat platform machinery which travel straight up and down. These machinery are best used for moving huge amounts of individuals or materials up and down. Scissor lifts offer more lifting capacity and bigger workspaces as opposed to bucket lifts. Boom Lifts are buckets found at the end of jointed or extendable arms. These machinery are perfect if you should reach up and over obstacles, because the majority of other machinery just move straight upward and downward.

Boom Lifts
Boom lifts are offered in 2 distinct types, articulating and telescopic boom lifts. The telescopic boom lifts are normally referred to as stick booms or straight booms. This type has extendable and long arms which can reach up to 120' at virtually whichever angle. These booms are normally used in the construction industry as their long reach allows workers to easily gain access to the upper stories of buildings. These are the best alternative when the goal is getting the highest and longest reach.

The articulating boom has bendable arms which are capable of reaching around and over obstacles. These types of booms are often known as knuckle booms and can place the bucket into the precise location which it needs to be. Articulating booms are common in the utility industry where working near obstacles like for example trees, and power lines make positioning difficult. These booms are likewise common place in plant maintenance where they allow staff to reach over immovable machinery.

Scissor Lifts
The scissor lift is unlike boom lifts and only travel vertically. Normally, these machines would offer larger lifting capacities and bigger platforms. The platforms allow for more workers and materials and allow access to bigger areas so that the equipment does not need to be repositioned as often. A variety of scissor lifts have a platform extension that provides a horizontal reach out of the top of the lift of 4 feet to 6 feet. Platform extensions offer a huge amount of flexibility although overall scissor lifts are really limited than a boom lift.
