Tips and guides to help you find the right boom lift

Here's some tips and guides on how to find the right boom lift for your job

1. What is a boom lift?

Boom lifts are essential on projects when elevation is required to move loads of equipment from tall buildings to the ground, and to access confined or unreachable spaces at a height. The telescopic boom lift and articulated boom lift are the two most commonly requested boom lifts on worksites. These boom lifts are available for hire on iSeekplant ready for your next elevated project.

2. What is the right boom lift for my job?

The most common boom lifts available for hire are the telescopic boom lift and articulated boom lift. Each of these boom lifts entailed their own unique advantages to suit your project requirements. First, telescopic boom lifts can reach heights over 150ft with use of a straight arm for outdoors projects. The telescopic boom lift is generally used for electrical repairs, tree trimming, small material haulage, and exterior finishing. Second, articulated boom lifts can reach heights up to 150ft with use of a bendable arm for confined work environments. The articulated boom lift is typically used for electrical and piping repairs, high access cleaning, exterior finishing, and general maintenance.

3. Do I need a license to operate a boom lift?

It is illegal to operate a boom lift without a license in Australia, as significant risks are associated with operating machinery at a height. A valid boom lift license can be obtained by completing the necessary training program. The Elevating Work Platform Association of Australia (EWPA) offer an Operator Training Program in all Australian states and territories that will qualify you as a boom lift operator.

5. Can any other machines do the same job as a boom lift?

There are several other machines that can also complete elevated work access similar to boom lifts but with their own specific use and benefits. These other machines include:

  • Scissor Lifts: Useful in a smaller area like an alleyway, as it is narrower than a boom lift but can only move up and down
  • Towable Boom Lifts: Smaller than the average boom lift and can be towed for tree trimming, exterior house decorating, and putting up signage
  • Elevated Work Platforms: Combine the functions of boom lifts, scissor lifts, and towable boom lifts to maintain work at a height while maintaining safety
