The majority of our used cherry pickers come from our rental fleet, where they undergo rigorous testing and consistent maintenance. This means you can purchase your machine, safe in the knowledge that it has been well looked after. We can also supply new machines from any of the leading manufacturers.
A cherry picker, also known as a boom, is a machine used to provide temporary access for people and equipment, to difficult to reach, or inaccessible areas at height. It enables operators to move up and over obstacles, providing precision and versatility in accessing hard to reach areas.
The phrase 'cherry picker' is broad term used to also refer to booms, stick booms, stick boom lifts, aerial work platforms (AWPs), elevating work platforms (EWPs), and mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPs).
The term cherry picker originates from the use of the machines in orchards, to do what it says on the tin and pick cherries.
In order to operate a cherry picker, you will need to have category 3b IPAF training. We can provide training in just the area you require, or we can provide IPAF training for 2 subjects, which will qualify you to operate machines that fall into the 1a, 1b, 3a and 3b categories, such as a scissor lift.
If you have previously been IPAF trained, we also provide refresher IPAF training.
