Trailer-mounted cherry pickers are also known as towable booms. These types of booms are very popular as they can be transported easily and safely by hitching the trailer to a vehicle.

Trailer-mounted cherry pickers are commonly seen on construction sites around this world, and in this article, we’ll be diving into the pros and cons of these lifts as well as some of their most popular applications.

Advantages of Trailer-Mounted Cherry Pickers

Trailer-mounted cherry pickers do not need a large, heavy duty flatbed in order to be transported. A pick-up truck, service van, or even an SUV should be able to tow the cherry picker without any issue. This saves you a lot of money when it comes to transport costs, and it makes the entire process so much simpler.

Trailer-mounted cherry pickers are also praised for being lightweight, which makes them easy to tow but also makes them less likely to get damaged.

The small engines (diesel or electric) used on these lifts are very quiet, so they are ideal if you are looking to reduce your noise pollution or have a job in an area where low noise is necessary. Electric engine is the ideal solution if you want to reduce noise.

Disadvantages of Trailer-Mounted Cherry Pickers

There are very few disadvantages when it comes to trailer-mounted cherry pickers. Trailer-mounted cherry pickers come in a range of different heights and types, so there is really something to suit every need.

Just ensure that the cherry picker you choose will provide you access to the heights that you need it to.

Applications of Trailer-Mounted Cherry Pickers

Cherry pickers give workers horizontal and vertical access on worksites, but they have many more applications than those that they would typically have on construction sites. Trailer-mounted cherry pickers are often used to work on power lines.
