Used Telescopic Boom Lifts available, all LOLER certified. Available now for fast delivery.
A telescopic boom lift (also known as a stick boom lift or a cherry picker) is an aerial work platform (AWP) that offers the greatest horizontal outreach of all aerial platforms.
The boom extends telescopically, or in a straight line, rather than at multiple points like an articulated boom.
This type of machine is widely used within a large range of industries, as it allows you to lift both workers, tools required and materials to areas of height safely.
Working in confined spaces where close ground access is unavailable
Rough terrain with the four-wheel drive options and oscillating axles
When you need extra reach, as some booms come with an extension called a 'jib'. This adds another point of extension and allows the boom to be even more flexible in tight working spaces.
A telescopic boom extends in length, in a straight line, making it ideal for accessing areas of height and outreach.
An articulated boom is able to move sections of it booms independently, to allow it to move up and over obstacles, which is better for compact areas but with reduced outreach.
The key difference between an articulated and a telescopic boom is the ability for the articulated to move sections of the boom independently.
In order to operate a telescopic boom, 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.
AFI deliver industry leading training and are recognised as one of the leading IPAF training providers in the UK. We offer training through our AFI Training brand.
