The cherry pickers sold by NLEQ are safe, reliable and are made by many of the brands that you know and love. But, just as you would if you bought your boom lifts brand-new, you will have to practice the proper care and maintenance of your used one. It is one honor of ours to help you out by giving you solid tips on caring for the equipment once it is in your possession.
How to Care for Your Cherry Pickers
Before you finalize a purchase of a used man lift from NLEQ, make sure to ask about the warranty that comes with it. At this time, you can also inquire about the service record of the machine. This will help you to get the most comprehensive idea as to what you’re getting into when you buy.
Our used construction equipment comes with a recommended service plan, which we strongly encourage you to stick to for the best results. Even if your cherry picker doesn’t seem to be in need of repair at the time, it’s still advisable to get the equipment checked once every six months or so.
Another key component of cherry picker care is ensuring that whoever is operating the machine knows what they are doing. Whether you buy new or used, nobody should be operating heavy construction equipment if they do not know how to do so properly.
Untrained individuals can cause long-term and expensive damage when they attempt to operate cherry pickers, telehandlers, scissor lifts and other pieces of heavy equipment.
When making your purchase, consider the terrain and environment that the cherry picker will be used on. If you buy a machine that is meant to be used on level, indoor terrain, it will deteriorate much quicker if you brought it to a job site that entails more rugged terrain.
In short, it is best to make sure that you have your cherry picker serviced as recommended and never use it outside of the setting that it was constructed for. When you take these cherry picker care tips into consideration, you will have a machine that lasts for as long as you need it to.
Don’t Worry About Buying a “Lemon” When You Buy from NLEQ
You might think that buying a used cherry picker is a bad idea, especially if you’ve been burned by other sellers. You might worry that you will be buying a “lemon” or a “dud” that cannot be trusted to safely and effectively help you complete a job. Rest assured that when you buy your used construction equipment from NLEQ’s expansive inventory, you’re getting the highest quality possible.
Our boom lifts are made by manufacturers that you know and trust. Brands like JLG, Snorkel and Genie, as well as many others, populate our ever-growing inventory. Instead of buying brand-new, consider getting your cherry pickers used from NLEQ.
