How Truck Mounted Aerial Lifts are Used

Professionals across industries rely on truck-mounted aerial lifts to perform duties safely and efficiently. Here are just a few of the most common applications:

Tree Care

Tree care was once a dangerous but highly necessary job. These days, tree-care workers use truck-mounted lifts to travel to jobsites, easily trimming away branches and limbs from power lines. Insulated lift technology provides additional protection from electrical hazards.  Truck-mounted aerial lifts have also been an invaluable asset to the fruit industry and are commonly used for cherry picking.

Commercial Sign Work

One industry that is quickly finding aerial lift trucks vital to their work is the commercial sign industry. These types of truck-mounted man lifts are used for installing, repairing, maintaining, and removing large signs on commercial buildings. Improved safeguards are making truck-mounted aerial lifts safe and efficient for this type of work that requires excellent reaching capabilities of the lift, as well as reaching and servicing from workers.

Light Installation

When professionals in the electrical utility industry need to install and maintain power lines, they turn to manlift trucks. Smaller truck-mounted scissor lifts have been designed with increased reach and reduced weight, providing better access in tight spaces. Such advancements in lift truck technology have also seen improvements in fuel efficiency. 

Window and Building Work

Truck mounted aerial lifts are improving their efficiency for compact jobs and are becoming more and more popular among building contractors. Similar to the requirements for lighting work, buildings require compact lifts with impressive reach capabilities to access materials needing repair, as well as windows that need repair, to be cleaned, and new installation.

Theatrical and Movie Work
