Terex Straight Boom Lifts
What Precisely Is a Boom Truck?
A boom truck utilizes a winch to recover heavy things or transport materials to places which are normally inaccessible. For example, they are normally used to reach the top of a building, maneuvering materials over a ditch or to a hillside.
A large truck is outfitted with a boom winch. This is mounted in the truck's bed and then it is capable of moving construction things and other equipment from street-side to a particular place. There is another boom truck design that is equipped with a cherry picker. This model enables arborists to access treetops easily.
Terex's Stinger BT 3063 model has a reach of 113-feet and is outfitted with both stabilizers and outriggers. A boom truck could vary from an aerial work platform which is moved by a hydraulic lifting device that is mounted on the bed, up to a Class 8 tractor-trailer rig with a bucket. It is also possible to have a customized boom lift made to meet the particular needs of the buyer.
Bucket booms or cherry pickers allow workers to reach excellent heights. Usually, buckets or cherry pickers transport employees from the ground up to high places like treetops, the sides of a building, up utility poles or for firefighting and fire department rescue.
The boom platform could be operated from the truck's cab by remote. Either the boom is mounted on the bed of a big truck or on a separate trailer. Booms which are bigger need outriggers which horizontally extend from the truck so as to level out and stabilize the crane in its use.
This kind of boom truck has a cab-over-engine that has a control cluster which could move the boom from inside the cab. It is often a panel in the boom itself on the side of the bed.
