An aerial work platform truck, also referred to as an aerial lift, cherry picker, crane truck, mobile crane, or cherry picker, is a heavy-duty mechanical machine used to provide limited, temporary access to highly elevated locations, usually in the air. As its name suggests, the vehicle lifts and lowers objects or work platforms using a crane system that involves extending and retracting the vehicle platform on tracks, using a boom lift. In most cases, the vehicle platform hoists are powered by electric motors. The lifting power is derived from the platform’s counterweight arrangement.
The purpose of using an aerial work platform truck is to lift and place objects of various types, such as light poles, steel beams, and wooden posts, on a raised platform that is almost 100 feet in height and over a mile in length. Sometimes, the platform may be raised to a vertical position by the use of rope ladders. However, in most cases, the vehicle platform hoist system requires the use of a crane lift to elevate the platform. Regardless of the system that is used, the lifting power is primarily derived from counterweights located on each end of the platform.
When a crane lift is used, the crane operator moves the platform to the location where work is to take place ban xe nang dau 2.5 tan. A cherry picker or crane truck is then used to place the platform in a suitable position. The vehicle is then raised to a maximum height for work and moved to the next level. This is usually done while the machine is stationary and is powered by the operator using a foot pedal. A cherry picker is the best suited for lifting extremely heavy objects and it is capable of lifting over one ton.
If a mobile elevator is not available, an aerial work platform can be raised into position on a flat surface. This type of platform is also called a work tower or a mobile cherry picker crane. In this instance, a flat ground access will be needed so the work area does not have to be restricted. It is capable of lifting loads that are up to approximately 200 tons. The work area can extend to several stories if necessary and the platform can be raised to a maximum height that is suitable for lifting heavy loads. The lift of this variety is usually achieved by the use of a hydraulic system that is controlled by the crane operator.
A cherry picker is typically capable of operating in either a straight line mode or inclined position. In the straight-line mode, the platform is raised to the same height as the surrounding ground. In the inclined position, the platform is raised to a different level than the surrounding ground. Both systems can be controlled by means of a foot pedal system.
There are a number of advantages that are associated with the use of an aerial work platform. These include: reduced manpower required for the same work performed; increased productivity due to the ability to lift more weight; easier and faster movement of equipment and supplies; reduced risks of injury to employees due to the use of raised platforms; and improved safety conditions for those involved in any type of work activity. With these benefits, it is no wonder that aerial work has become so popular in recent years. It has become the preferred choice for many businesses when it comes to lifting heavy materials and objects. As technology continues to advance and improve, it is expected that these types of platforms will become even safer, more efficient, and reliable.
