What Is a Straight Telescopic Boom Lift?
Straight telescopic boom lifts, or stick booms, feature a single arm. They’re a common alternative to articulated booms, which can be more difficult to use because of their multiple sections. Stick booms, in comparison, are easier to control because their boom only moves in one direction.
Stick booms have the greatest horizontal reach of all aerial platforms. Because of their high reach, straight telescopic booms have a wider base than other lifts. Base widths are between eight to 10 feet, depending on the model of your straight telescopic boom rental.
Telescopic boom lift rentals are available with various tire options to meet the needs of different job sites. Tire options include rough-terrain tires, which allow your equipment to travel across gravel and shale. Other accessories for our straight telescopic boom rentals include:
- Light kit
- Welder ready package
- Tool tray
- Tow kit
Why Rent a Telescopic Boom Lift?
Renting a telescopic boom lift is becoming a more common choice for companies and contractors because of their many versatile uses. Uses for telescopic boom rentals include:
- Building construction, maintenance or cleaning
- Electrical, lighting or sign repairs
- Inspecting bridges
- Maintaining buildings
Reasons for renting one of these lifts instead of buying include:
- Temporary projects that require reaching extreme heights
- Limited number of jobs that require working in tight spaces
- Seasonal tasks where a telescopic boom lift is needed
Some small and large businesses also choose to rent because they can lower their maintenance and storage costs. Renting is a smart decision when you rarely use a straight telescopic boom lift — for example, if you only need it seasonally or for a single project.
At MacAllister Rentals, we make the rental process easy. Our family-owned business is made up of lift experts who can help you find a straight telescopic boom lift for rent that meets your project’s needs.
