I am not sure how much you already know on the topic, but allow me here to tell you that boom lifts can come in handy when a person wants to carry out some complicated works especially on elevated heights. If you are not afraid of heights (and I am assuming that you are not since many people are not that afraid of mountain climbing), you should find it very enjoyable to happen to be on a manlift.
What is the purpose of such lifts? The main purpose of them is to transport the workers as well as other elements necessary for carrying out a task such as machineries to the elevated work sites on which they happen to work. A good example of an event when an aerial lift can come in handy is when there is a construction work happening on an elevated place. What type of industries are likely to use such lifts? The answer to this question is rather simple: telephone wiring industries, poll industries,cherry pickers are only some of the examples of the industries that take advantage of such lifts.
Similar to aerial lifts are scissor lifts. Their main purpose is to enable the transportation of heavy goods such as furniture for example.
