What Is a Boom Truck?
A boom truck utilizes a winch to recover heavy things or transport materials to places that are normally inaccessible. Like for example, they are usually utilized maneuvering materials to a hillside or over a ditch or to reach the top of a building.
Larger trucks are outfitted with a boom winch that is mounted in the bed of a truck. It is capable of moving construction things and other equipment from the side of the street to a certain location. There is a different boom truck design that is outfitted with a cherry picker. This version enables arborists to easily access treetops.
The Stinger BT 3063 model has a 113-foot reach and is outfitted with outriggers and stabilizers. A boom truck could vary from an aerial work platform that is moved by a hydraulic lifting mechanism that is mounted on the bed, up to a Class 8 tractor-trailer rig with a bucket. It is also possible to have a modified boom lift made to meet the specific needs of the buyer.
Bucket booms or cherry pickers allow employees to reach excellent heights. Normally, buckets or cherry pickers move employees from the ground up to high places like the sides of buildings, treetops, up utility poles or for firefighting and fire department rescue.
The platform on the boom is operated by remote from the truck's cab. Either the boom is mounted on a separate trailer or on the bed of a big truck. Booms that are bigger require outriggers that horizontally extend from the truck so as to stabilize and level out the crane throughout its use.
This model of boom truck has a cab-over-engine which has a control cluster that can move the boom from inside the cab. It is normally a panel in the boom itself on the side of the bed.
