Aerial Work Platform Truck
An aerial work platform, sometimes called an aerial lift-off work system, cherry picker, crane truck, fixed cherry picker or mobile cherry picker, is a manoeuvring mechanical device used to give temporary access to elevated sites, usually in height above ground level. It is used for many different types of construction jobs and can be either remotely operated or control from the ground. It is typically mounted on a tripod and controls are either onboard or via radio or wire. It may also be operated from a fixed location on the ground or from an aerial platform hoist.
Aerial work platforms also commonly known as cherry pickers are large trucks with an enclosed crane body, often powered by a solid engine. They are made from a variety of materials including metal and timber. The platform of an aerial work platform hoist can be lifted and moved into the required position, or it can be moved by a crane, which is also commonly powered by a diesel engine. The crane can also move the platform into any position to which it is securely attached. Cherry pickers are generally used for work on roofs or over areas which cannot be accessed by a vehicle or crane.
Cherry pickers are commonly used for jobs such as installing fences and retaining walls. They can also be used for work on ladders, repairing damaged machinery and moving heavy objects. The crane of a cherry picker is controlled by the person on the ground who is operating the vehicle. There are two types of cherry pickers; a single axle or double axle model. The first model is less versatile but is used for jobs where the terrain is more complicated and the distance to be travelled is greater xe nang chay dau 3 tan.
The second aerial work platform truck is capable of carrying a larger crane, with a capacity of up to three hundred and fifty kilograms, and is capable of lifting loads of up to one thousand kilograms. The third type has a capacity of less than sixty kilograms, which is far smaller than most cherry pickers. These are usually used on narrow platforms which are not too high.
The third type of vehicle is sometimes referred to as a “rapid-lift vehicle”. It is an aerial lift vehicle which is used to transfer materials and equipment from one elevated location to another, usually in a small period of time. These trucks are frequently fitted with a cherry-picker crane, which is then raised or lowered by a hydraulic system. A “rapid-lift” vehicle is most often used to lift medium to long lengthily loads, as the crane will need to stay at the same height in order to perform the job and there will need to be room for movement in the area being worked upon.
In addition to lifting the load it is also important that the platform and its engine both have adequate hydraulic systems and electrical systems to function properly. This is due to the fact that heavy loads need to be carried away quickly and there is increased risk of an accident occurring if the equipment does not function correctly. As most cherry pickers can lift approximately seventy kilograms, the weight of the crane itself will also need to be considered when choosing a model. The speed and the distance at which the cherry picker is operated should also be considered. All of these considerations are important, and the choice of a cherry picker is one that should be made carefully, basing this decision on experience and the type of work to be carried out.
