A boom lift, also known as a cherry picker or aerial lift, is an elevated work platform. There is a bucket at the end of a hydraulic-powered lifting arm that carries the operator. They have many uses and applications, including construction projects, building maintenance, landscaping (tree pruning), window cleaning, painting, and infrequent occasion – roller coaster rescue. You’ll also see boom lifts being utilized by telephone companies, cable companies, and fire departments.
At Durante Rentals, we rent boom lifts ranging from 26 feet to 180 feet in length and feature gas, diesel, or electric power. We rent two types of boom lifts – straight (telescopic) and articulated. Straight boom lifts (stick booms), as their name indicates, extend vertically, reaching working heights of 32 to 186 feet, depending on the model. If you’re looking for maximum vertical reach as well as added horizontal reach, an articulated boom is your best option. Along with the added horizontal capability, articulated booms are well suited for areas with tight spaces and limited access – perfect for reaching up and over obstacles. Learn more about renting straight booms vs. articulated booms.
All of our booms have a standard lift capacity of 500 to 1,000 lbs. The operator’s platform ranges from 5 to 8 feet – allowing for a maximum of two operators per bucket when necessary. Safety is of utmost importance, so all the latest safety standards are incorporated into our machines – including emergency stop buttons, automatic anti-tipping safety controls, and self-leveling features.
Our large rental fleet of cherry pickers are from reputable and well-known manufacturers such as Genie, SkyJack, and JLG.
