Cherry Pickers

Description

What is a cherry picker?

A cherry picker is a specialist aerial lift in the powered access category that uses a hydraulic arm to extend a platform. Articulating boom lifts contain a bend in the hydraulic  arm to allow for greater maneuverability when accessing difficult spots. Articulating boom lifts are commonly called cherry pickers. Telescopic boom lifts do not have a bend in the arm and allow for higher weight loads to be lifted.   

 

Can anyone rent a cherry picker?

Yes. Any member of the public can hire a cherry pickers, however, for health and safety reasons the operator must have an IPAF license.

How much does it cost to hire?

Cherry picker hire costs start from £350 + VAT, insurance and delivery. The type and size will affect the hire price.
