From the variety of construction equipment we do sell, there are telehandlers, articulating boom lifts, straight boom lifts, scissor lifts, skid steers, excavators, carry deck cranes, forklifts, backhoes and much, much more.
A telehandler is a utility lifting machine. Telehandlers are often mounted on a four wheel drive chassis and are equipped with a telescopic boom which allows them to lift as high as 55 feet in the air, if not more. Most of the time, telehandlers have pallet fork attachments that allow them to lift materials on construction job sites. Some telehandlers use an attachment that allows them to handle buckets.
A straight boom lift is a boom lift with an arm that extends outward like a telescope. This telescoping beam moves in many directions as it swivels from it base. The maximum height reach varies, but the highest maximum height reach is probably around 180 feet. If your construction site has a high spot that is difficult to reach, you may be able to use a straight boom lift to get the job done.
Articulating boom lifts are similar to straight boom lifts. The difference is that the arm of an articulated boom lift is fashioned from jointed “knuckles”. The boom lift is able to articulate, which allows it to move up and over obstacles in an effective fashion. If your construction job site is near power lines, trees, power plants, or any other area filled with obstacles, an articulating boom lift is probably a good choice for the job.
A scissor lift is a type of man lift that is known for its large carrying capacity. Scissor lifts use platforms to carry as much as 1,500 pounds. The scissor lift with the lowest weight capacity probably carries at least 500 pounds. If you need to move personnel and materials in larger quantities, this machine is the one for you. Scissor lifts are also good for moving several people from one work area to the next. The height reach of the average scissor lift is around 40 feet.
A skid steer is a small piece of construction equipment mainly used for loading items. It is powered by an engine and is equipped with lift arms. These arms can be attached to any number of attachments—most of which are useful for loading and unloading materials.
