Kinds of Man Lifts
Manlifts are offered in three major kinds: Personnel Lifts, Scissor Lifts and Boom Lifts. Intended specifically for single-users cases, personnel lifts are vertical travel buckets. They are the cheapest alternative for single-user operations which require just vertical travel. Scissor Lifts are flat platform machines that travel straight up and down. These machinery are best utilized for moving big amounts of individuals or materials up and down. Scissor lifts offer more lifting capacity and bigger workspaces as opposed to bucket lifts. Boom Lifts are buckets found at the end of jointed or extendable arms. These machines are ideal if you have to reach up and over obstacles, as nearly all other machines only move straight up and down.

Boom Lifts
Boom lifts come in two main varieties, the articulating booms and the telescopic boom lifts. The telescopic boom variety is usually known as a straight boom or a stick boom. This model has long and extendable arms that could reach up to 120' at virtually whatever angle. These booms are normally utilized in the construction industry since their long reach allows employees to easily gain access to the upper stories of buildings. These are the best option when the goal is getting the longest and highest reach.

The articulating boom has bendable arms which are capable of reaching around and over obstacles. These types of booms are commonly called knuckle booms and can position the bucket into the precise location which it has to be. Articulating booms are common in the utility industry where working near obstacles like for example power lines and trees make positioning difficult. These booms are also common place in plant maintenance where they enable workers to reach over immovable equipment.

Scissor Lifts
Scissor lifts just travel vertically, unlike boom lifts. They generally offer larger lifting capacities and bigger platforms. These platforms provide more space for workers and materials, allowing workers to access a bigger work area without needing to reposition the lift. A variety of scissor lifts have a platform extension that provides a horizontal reach out of the top of the lift of 4' to 6'. Platform extensions provide a huge amount of flexibility although overall scissor lifts are very limited compared to a boom lift.
