A boom lift is an essential piece of professional equipment for a large number of industries. Painters, cleaners and construction companies: they all use boom lifts in their day-to-day business. Riwal is the perfect place to rent boom lifts in different shapes and sizes. These machines are from renowned brands like JLG and Genie, all manufacturers of boom lifts who have earned their stripes over the years. There are two common types of Boom Lifts: Straight Boom Lifts (Designed to reach areas of height quickly and efficiently, straight boom lifts have extending booms that project straight out from the base of the machine and at full elevation and height within a round operating envelope with limited outreach. In order to reach out, the machine needs to be placed further from the structure it is reaching over as there is no articulating joint in the boom section.) and Articulated Boom Lifts (Designed to reach up and over an object, articulated boom lifts have one or even two articulating joints in the main boom enabling the machine to have a large outreach potential.). Electric boom lifts are mostly used in warehouses, factories, shopping malls and other areas where zero emission standards need to be followed. Diesel models are highly suitable for outside jobs that require flexible machinery to take your staff and equipment up in the air safely. They can be deployed in areas with little maneuvering space and on rough terrain.
