Construction, industrial, and maintenance teams use telescopic boom lifts to reach elevated work zones that are difficult to access (or areas where machinery or rough terrain prevent access). The telescopic arm of the boom lift extends horizontally, offering operators direct outreach capability.
A telescopic boom lift can safely support several workers at once depending on its capacity. The base of teh telescopic boom lift comes with rugged tires so that teams can operate on both polished surfaces and unstable, rough terrain. The workers stand on a work platform attached at the end of the telescopic arm, which can range from 40 to 180 feet in reach. Check out the FAQs below to learn more.

The cost of a telescopic boom lift depends heavily on how much reach you want and how long you rent the machine for. A 40-foot telescopic boom lift diesel dual-fuel model can cost $285, $934 per week, or $2,075 per month. In comparison, a 120-foot model can cost $1,650 per day, $4,790 per week, or $12,007 per month.
Keep in mind that prices will vary not only by model, but based on availability, location, time of year, and more. For boom lifts that go beyond 120 feet, you will need to request a quote.
The main difference between a telescopic boom lift and an articulating boom lift is that articulating boom lifts have a joint arm and segmented boom sections that make the arm more maneuverable, as compared to the straight arm of the telescopic boom lift.
Articulating boom lifts can reach up to 150 feet, and are good for smaller and tigheter workspaces. Telescopic boom lifts tend to have a longer reach – up to 210 feet – and are better for rough terrain and carrying materials to high positions.
Telescopic boom lifts typically have a reach of between 40 and 185 feet. However, the tallest boom lift in the world, the Snorkel 2100SJ, can reach 210 feet.
Keep in mind reach distances may be different vertically than horizontally – and even in terms of range of motion. Check the specifications before you rent any model. For example, one model may reach to a certain height vertically, but it would be unsafe to extend that same reach horizontally. This may affect your decision based on the kind of work you need it to do.
The amount of weight a telescopic boom lift can hold depends heavily on the machine, although 750 to 1,000 pounds is a common lift limit. It is critical to understand the capacity of any machine you are considering renting so you can know if it will be able to lift the people, machines, and materials you need to do the job.
The main difference between a boom lift and a scissor lift is that boom lifts can extend horizontally, while scissor lifts can only lift vertically. As a result, this makes them suited for different types of jobs.
A boom lift is highly maneuverable and great for access tight, hard-to-reach areas at great heights. Scissor lifts have large platforms and can handle a heavier weight capacity. The scissor design also makes the more stable, and they are typically cheaper to rent than a boom lift.
