Common Uses for Telescopic Boom Lifts
Telescopic boom lifts are ideal for working in areas with limited access, and come in various sizes, lifting capacities, drive speeds and other features depending on your needs and job site. These features make telescopic boom lifts extremely popular in Construction and Industrial applications, but can be used for Agricultural, Electrical, Painting, and Roofing applications as well.

Manufacturers & ModelsWhen comparing manufacturers and models, it is important to consider the following:
Telescopic boom lifts have a lift weight capacity between 500 and 1,000 pounds. You must consider how many people and what types of tools are needed on the platform to determine which lift is right for the job.
Gasoline, diesel, and propane are common fuels used in telescopic boom lifts. Check the fuel type, prices for the fuel, fuel efficiency, and availability of the fuel type in your area before choosing a boom lift.
Telescopic boom lift tires come in several types of tread for various soils, and are in either two-wheel or four-wheel drive. Consider the type of ground you will be operating on and find the right tires for the boom lift. If you will be operating on very soft or sloping ground, a telescopic boom may be dangerous to use.
With a range of 30’ to 100’ in vertical reach, telescopic boom lifts can help you get to the top of trees, poles, and roofs. The booms can also extend horizontally, but watch the angle because it reduces the weight capacity and stability of the machine.
