Articulating booms are aerial work platforms with multiple boom sections that hinge or “articulate” allowing the operator to gain access to work areas over obstacles and barriers. Also known as “knuckle booms” or“up-and-over booms,” these versatile products are perfect for tight access and hard-to-reach areas.
Choose an articulating boom when:
- You need to reach over obstacles. Articulating booms have less horizontal outreach than telescopic booms, but they provide greater versatility to reach up, over and out to access work areas.
- You need to travel over rough terrain. Rough-terrain models are designed for rugged, unimproved construction sites. Features include diesel engines, an active oscillating axle (for enhanced traction) and four-wheel drive.
- You need extra reach from the platform.
