Boom lifts are an essential part of any construction site that requires working at height.
Boom lifts have complex telescopic or articulating boom sections counteracted with a chassis that acts as the counterweight. Boom lifts can be driven on rough terrain and are rigged up with top of the line safety features to prevent falls, tipping, or boom failures. Because of the risks that come with working at height, it is imperative that you keep your machine well maintained with high quality boom lift parts.
What parts do boom lifts consist of?
Boom lift parts consist of five primary categories.
Boom lifts are comprised of a drive chassis and their components that keep the boom lift stable and moving. The drive chassis consists of axles, manifolds, hydraulics, and the outer body panels.
You have your turntable components that control the rotation of the boom section.
The boom section consists of its own components that allow it to safely extend telescopically or articulated.
The boom lift platform and its components typically endure the most wear. The platform is what the workers are working out of and operating the boom lift from. This means that the platform, or basket, and it's rails are subject to a lot of damage. The basket and controllers can be easily replaced with both OEM and aftermarket suppliers so be sure to browse all options when considering platform replacements.
Lastly, a boom lift has a hydraulic system that requires maintenance.
