Looking for a boom lift that will fit all your construction needs? Finding Manitou boom lifts for sale can be a challenge if you’re in the market for a machine that can reach higher than a scissor lift and around obstacles. Our vendors often offer the two basic types of Manitou Boom lifts for sale—articulating and telescoping. Below, you’ll find a comprehensive list of the performance abilities of our boom lifts and an answer to all your burning questions about our Manitou boom lifts for sale.

What is a Manitou Boom Lift?

A boom lift is a machine designed to raise a person, usually one, to a great height for construction or maintenance work. They’re equipped with a hydraulic arm that extends a small cabin upward from the body of the vehicle. Other names for the vehicle include cherry picker, bucket truck, and AWP (aerial work platform). They’re vital for tasks like electric power line work and window installation, and Manitou lifts have all-terrain tires and suspension for use in rough environments.

Some boom lifts use arms that extend in a straight line with telescoping sections placed inside each other, while others have articulating arms that fold out and can bend around corners. Telescoping boom lifts can reach higher because their design allows them to fit more total boom length in one place, and articulating boom lifts are necessary when there’s work to be done in a high place that can’t be reached in a straight line from the ground.

A note on safety: when you’re using a boom lift, you’ll need to take note of the angle of the telescoping or articulating arm to make sure that it isn’t too far off from the vehicle’s center of weight. If it is, it could cause the machine to fall over. Boom lift operators also know to take note of the wind speed and conditions before attempting any job.

What is the Life Expectancy of a Manitou Boom Lift?

A boom lift can last quite a long time with the proper care—30 years of use is a good rule of thumb. Almost like a car’s odometer, boom lifts can have an hour meter that keeps track of the time a boom lift has been engaged, giving you a sense of the wear that the hydraulic system has seen.

The intensity of the use you put a boom lift through and whether it receives proper care is the biggest factor in the machine’s lifespan, not the actual age of the machine. A couple of years carrying heavy loads without any regard for maintenance can put a quick end to the life of a boom lift, but a lift that sees light use and proper care can last decades.
