what is the trailing articulated boom lift

When looking at the picture of a trailing articulated boom lift in work, people are likely to think about that a spider is lying on the floor. A very vivid imagination, isn’t it? In order to learn the structure and work principles of the trailing boom lifts, this article will elaborate them step by step.

1.Main Components

 Boom: the fist boom, the second boom and the telescopic boom.
 Hydraulic cylinders: to hold and offer power to the booms.
 Tires: to move the trailing boom lifts.
 Hydraulic supporting legs: to firm and adjust the height of the towable boom lift.
 Motor power: to offer power to the whole boom lift equipment.
 Control box & control panel: to control the operation and safety of using the trailing boom lift.
 Working cage/platform: for workers to stand on to implement aerial jobs.

2.Types of Motor Power

 AC power is generally a standard configuration, and is suitable for using in those workplaces where electric power is available for easy use.
 Battery power and petrol power are optional if no available electric power can be used in your work sites.
 If the trailer boom lift will be used both indoors and outdoors, hybrid power can also be chosen, which can meet your different need in practice.

3.Safety Devices

 Dual controllers – control box is installed at the bottom of the boom for ground operation; control panel are used to operate the booms specifically.
 The emergency drop button is installed in each boom in case of power failure and some other accidents, so that the booms can be lowered and retracted.
 Guardrails that prevent workers’ hands from being hurt or collided by tree branches and other obstacles are designed in the platform.
 Four hydraulic outriggers ensure the trailer mounted boom lifts are more stable and safe.

Trailing boom lifts are helpful and convenient equipment to maintain the street lights and high-rise buildings, and are also used in shop malls or other public places. For more questions about the machine, please visit the linked website and directly contact us now.
