Market Strengths

Sometimes called “cherry pickers”, boom trucks are the most popular of heavy lift equipment.

With their compact size and ability to maneuver in hard to access sites, they're the equipment of choice for utility and phone line work, lighting and sign maintenance (both on and off the highways), tree care, exterior painting, and more. On major construction sites, the boom truck is the perfect support unit – excellent for staging materials and making quick lifts across the entire site.

Power generators and utilities alike drive the demand for boom trucks, including power distribution and oil/ gas recovery. The energy companies use large capacity boom trucks with 45-70 ton capabilities and high reach platforms to install electric transmission lines or work on phone lines. Gas drillers love the flexibility of using boom trucks to lift and set pipe.

As the economy has improved, so has small, urban construction including housing and retail. On these sites, brick and block, precast, and sign erection are perfect applications for boom trucks. Delivery of drywall supply, sand and gravel, and concrete precast is easily completed with the right boom truck.

Boom trucks can be outfitted with a variety of options, including one and two-man baskets, winches, and remotes for one-man operations.

Customers can choose from hundreds of ready-to-work boom trucks. Inventory ranges from 10-ton to 80-ton capacities, with up to 155 feet of hydraulic boom and optional jibs up to 202 feet of working height. But the best boom truck is the one built just for you.
