A trailer mounted boom is designed to give maximum reach performance from a compact chassis. They feature ‘up and over’ capabilities for reaching difficult to access spaces, while hydraulic outriggers provide a safe and stable base, even on rough terrain. The controls are easy to operate for precise work at heights, making trailer mounted booms the convenient cherry picker/boom option for many purposes. Trailer mounted booms are useful for a variety of applications including:

  1. Multi-site contracts
  2. Building and factory maintenance
  3. Shopping centre maintenance
  4. Painting/Cleaning
  5. Tree trimming
  6. Warehousing
  7. Telecommunication and lighting facilities
Trailer mounted booms available from Coates Hire satisfy all industry standards and are regularly checked to ensure they are in top working order at all times. Here are a few tips for safe operation of a trailer mounted boom.

1. Wear appropriate work gear and a safety harness as directed.
2. Check all gauges are fully operational and in good working order.
3. Familiarise yourself with all controls for comfortable maneuverability of the platform.
4. Work at a safe pace and understand all the safety features of the trailer mounted boom.
5. Fully lower the boom and turn it off before safely dismounting.
