An articulating boom lift is an aerial work platform connected by an arm with multiple sections allowing the arm to bend. The articulating boom arm is powered by a hydraulic system to extend and is convenient for reaching blocked or otherwise obscured areas of operation.
These pivot points, or places where the sections interconnect, are sometimes called “knuckles”, which is why you’ll often hear articulating boom forklifts referred to as “knuckle boom lifts”. This adds versatility to the machine, making an articulating boom lift ideal for gaining the extra reach you need to work around or over obstacles on the worksite.
An articulating boom forklift is great for navigating tight spaces, especially indoors. Small articulating boom lifts are also available for the most limited indoor areas.
