Crawler Boom Lift- A Special Utility Tool
Aichi has a great variety of boom lifts in the United States. These machines have been thoroughly tested and designed for uneven terrain and allow a clearance of 18 inches and a grade-ability of 60 percent.
The compact, three stage boom standards on all Aichi boom lift models are outfitted with a harsh surroundings package that features boots on the cylinders, wipers on the boom sections, and fortification on bearing and pivots points.
Wheeled Boom Lifts
Aichi's wheeled boom lifts includes characteristics such as a proportional control system for precise and smooth arrangement of the aerial lift. The distinctive triple-stage boom structure typical on all of Aichi's wheel boom lifts permit for the most compressed stowing arrangement available. This allows the worker to have a better working range from the stowed position without having to move or relocate the boom lift. The reduced stowed length also it easier to park the machine and can lessen transportation expenditures as both a scissor lift and boom lift machine can fit inside an average sized trailer.
Aichi boom lifts are outfitted with boots on the cylinders, wipers located on the boom, and fortification on bearing and pivots points to help it cope with harsher environments and the elements.

Aerial Lift Safety
There are many dangers when operating aerial lift equipment. Almost 50% of the fatalities involve boom-supported lifts, such as bucket trucks and cherry pickers. To ensure that you and your employees are safe you should always check the emergency systems and fall-protection gear of your equipment.
To Consider Before Buying
Weigh the benefits of purchasing a new cherry picker or man lift versus a used one. New ones can cost you more initially but make up for the cost in maintenance savings. Conversely, properly serviced used lifts can have just as much longevity as a new machine but cost significantly less.
Ensure that your prospective lift has not been modified in any way other than suggested by the manufacturer.
Check service records to ensure all recommended services have been met. This can seriously increase the useable life of a machine.
Importance of Training
Only operators who have received professional instructions regarding the inspection and application of an aerial lift should be allowed to operate one. Classes and training seminars are available locally so ensure that you or your employees utilize them to stay informed of the latest operational and safety methods.
