Boom lifts are machines that elevate workers to hard-to-reach or obstructed work locations by way of an extending arm. There are two types of boom lifts: articulating boom lifts and telescopic boom lifts.

Articulating boom lifts offer both horizontal and vertical lifting capability, allowing operators to position themselves above obstacles, like debris or machinery, that would otherwise prevent them from reaching their destination. Telescopic boom lifts provide telescopic lifting capability, meaning they can only extend horizontally. As a more direct boom lift, they are better for reaching elevated locations with limited access. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.

FAQs

How much does it cost To rent a boom lift?

The cost to rent a boom lift varies based on a number of factors, including height, type of boom lift, and fuel type. For example, a 34-foot diesel, dual-fuel articulating boom lift costs $260/day, $562/week, and $1,456/month to rent.

Boom lift prices will vary depending on power type as well. Compared to the above diesel boom, an electric boom of the same size will cost $242/day. Likewise, booms with larger lifts will cost more. A 60-foot diesel, duel-fuel telescopic boom lift costs $355/day or $2,245/month to rent.

The type of lift will also influence the price. Boom lifts are usually available in two specific lift types: articulated and telescopic. Compared to the 60-foot telescopic boom lift above, a similar-sized articulating boom lift will cost $339/day.

What type of boom lift do I need?

When it comes to boom lifts, there are two major kinds: articulated and telescopic. Both have similar lift heights, and both have similar lifting capacities. However, each model excels in different areas.

  • Articulating boom lifts feature an arm with multiple joints. This “knuckle lift” allows the lift to move around obstacles and confined spaces to reach hard-to-navigate areas. This functionality makes articulated lifts great for exterior cleaning, pipe repair, and electrical work.
  • Telescopic boom lifts feature an extending lift arm, rather than one that can bend. The lift bucket is usually smaller than that of an articulated lift, so telescopic lifts are suited for one-person jobs. Because of their extending action, they can be used for jobs of varying height. This includes tree trimming and electrical work.

How are boom lifts different from other types of aerial lifts?

Boom lifts are usually suited to one worker, and they work best on level ground. Boom lifts are also distinct because of the booms themselves. Unlike scissor lifts or forklifts, boom lifts are designed to lift a worker to a specific position for work, rather than lifting objects or multiple workers.

Additionally, boom lifts aren’t designed for moving heavy loads. Those kinds of jobs are best suited for industrial forklifts.

Unlike other lifts, boom lifts can span wide areas without moving the base of the machine. Scissor lifts may lift more workers at once. But the reach of a boom lift, especially an articulated boom, allows a worker to cover more area.

How high can a boom lift go?

Maximum boom lift heights are determined by their model. Telescopic boom lifts generally reach up to 180 feet tall. The smallest telescopic booms are about 40 feet tall.
Articulating lifts are generally smaller than telescopic boom lifts. Starting at a minimum of 30 feet, these lifts can reach up to 100 feet on larger models.

It is crucial to understand that height doesn’t equate to reach.

Do I need a license to operate a boom lift?

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requires that you be trained and authorized to operate an aerial lift. Training and certification will cover safety risks, controls, weight and height limits, and inspections. Training and recertification may be necessary for some lifts. Additionally, one lift’s training doesn’t necessarily carry over to another type of lift.
