Boom Lift & Cherry Picker Hire FAQs

Your Questions, Answered.

The primary benefit of using a boom lift is that it allows workers to reach high elevations safely and efficiently. This can save time and increase productivity compared to traditional ladder-based methods, based on the height you require. Boom lifts also provide a stable platform for workers to perform their tasks, reducing the risk of accidents and injuries.

In general, it is not recommended to use a boom lift as an anchor point for safety reasons. Boom lifts are designed for elevated work and not for use as a safety harness anchorage point.

Yes, in the UK, you are required to have a licence to operate a boom lift. A PAL Card is a Powered Access Licence for operating Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (MEWPs), Mast Climbing Work Platforms (MCWPs) or Construction Hoists (CHs). The training course is accredited by IPAF (International Powered Access Federation). We can also provide a IPAF-certified operator if needed.

When using a boom lift, it is important to follow all manufacturer guidelines and safety procedures. This includes using proper personal protective equipment, securing the platform before use, and checking the lift for any damage or malfunctions before each use. It is also important to follow load capacity and wind speed restrictions to prevent accidents and damage to the lift.

The wind speed at which a boom lift can be safely operated varies depending on the manufacturer's guidelines and the type of lift being used. In general, boom lifts should not be operated in wind speeds above 20 mph, but this can vary depending on the conditions and the type of lift. It is important to always follow the manufacturer's guidelines and to not use the lift in winds that exceed its rated capacity.
