Aerial work platform guide

These types exist

Trailed work platform

The trailer platform is characterized by its light weight and compact dimensions. For substrates, which can carry very little weight is often the decisive advantage. They are also suited for narrow passages. The working height with an average trailed platform is between 40 and 80 feet. They are a cost effective alternative to truck mounted work platforms.


Articulating boom lift

Boom lifts are platforms with telescopic technology. They are available with a steel chain with a rubber track undercarriage and landing gear. Boom lift with steel chains chassis are perfect for working on difficult ground in uneven terrain, while the platforms are protected with rubber tracks, undercarriage very low to the ground and are thus very good for use on lawns or delicate flowing. Both models have a very large lateral height. The maximum height can go up to 120 feet.


Bucket truck

Truck mounted platforms are the most powerful platforms. The platform is located right in the bed arm. They can be driven around and can reach the work site quickly. The height of these models can go up to 270 feet; they also distinguish themselves from the stage by a large truck outreach.


Scissor lift

Especially when working on walls and ceilings, scissor lift is an ideal alternative to the more expensive stands and climbers. In addition, scissor lift is flexible and can be fully loaded and run at working height of one point to another. These units can be used indoors as well as outdoors and have a maximum working height of 20-70 feet. The platform provides enough space for loads and workers. Scissor lifts have a high load capacity of up to 2000 lbs. No support is necessary for this model.


Vertical mast lift

They can be used in small spaces with the vertical lifting height of up to 50 feet. Vertical lifts are often referred to as 'personal-lifts', because they raise the worker just like an elevator. From the working height, the device can be easily operated and controlled. Vertical lifts are often used as an efficient alternative to conventional ladders and scaffolds.
