When it comes to renting a lift, key factors to consider are the terrain, movement and obstacles. Although scissor lifts typically feature bigger platforms, some tend to reach only 20 to 50 feet. Boom lifts may reach as high as 130 feet and tend to offer greater maneuverability.
For example, let’s consider a job that requires changing indoor lamps in a location like a gym that has a smooth floor. A scissor lift with appropriate height capacity will enable navigation through the gym doors and accommodate workers. Also, a scissor lift offers space for tools workers need to open light fixtures. If a job needs horizontal reach to get around obstacles, a platform extension may be the right fit. For jobs that call for a longer reach, then a telescoping boom lift would be appropriate.
Some work locations have obstacles that block access both horizontally and vertically. For these settings, we would probably advise an articulated boom lift. This type of aerial lift helps workers reach up, over and around obstacles. When a job is outdoors on a sloping or wet surface, consider an aerial lift with balloon tires for optimal traction.

Instruments on an aerial lift control panel allow for measuring the slope and tilt of a surface. Also, the panel allows the user to stop movement if the aerial lift gets close to a hazardous tilt. Without these control features, the lift operator must judge if reach, load, tilt and height are at a dangerous point. In these situations, human errors can result in serious accidents and injuries.
Materials and tools are other important factors to consider when choosing an aerial work platform.
For example, a job may require workers to use battery-operated power tools. Or, a lift might require electrical outlets. For welding equipment, for instance, the platform also needs enough electrical outlets and space.
To assure safety while upon an aerial lift, workers much leave adequate room on the platform. This is to allow for movement within the platform railing. Even when utilizing fall protections, personnel should avoid working outside of the railing. Any sudden movement of the aerial lift could result in a worker swinging beneath the platform. As a result, he or she could hit the underside with sufficient force to cause an injury.
Controls for working upon uneven surfaces give the lift user the ability to measure angles and alert to hazardous conditions. Importantly, controls mean the user can stop in the event of a tipping risk.
Many manufacturers consistently look for feedback on their project requirements during construction projects. Feedback provides valuable insight on emerging trends and helps managers incorporate the information into their designs. For instance, manufacturers do carry compact telehandler models which are sufficient for many jobs. Also, crews are able to tow compact aerial lifts behind a work vehicle, eliminating transport costs to the site.
