Work Platform NY
Two distinct types of the elevating work platforms are commonly used in New York, and each type of the work platform has its unique purpose. Common among all work platforms in NY and eslewhere are the following two features: an elevating work platform typically lifts no more than a ton of load (usually much less), and it can be fully prepared for operation and operated by a single worker.
The first type of the work platform is known as "aerial device" (even though some of the more seasoned construction workers in NY commonly refer to it as "cherry picker" or "zoom boom"). NY residents are used to seeing that type of the work platform attached to fire trucks: aerial devices allow more precise access to otherwise inaccessible areas than the usual fire truck ladders. It's less known to New Yorkers (those who are not employed in the construction industry) that the "aerial device" type of the work platform is widely used in construction industry all over New York. Another, more specific name for the aerial device type of work platform is "articulated lift", the term refferring to the fact that the tower of the work platform may have a number of elbow-like rotating joints as well as telescopic beams, allowing high-precision access to the areas at the heights of 300 feet or more.
Equally popular on the construction sites all over NY is the second type of the elevating work platform: the so called "scissor lift". The work platform of the scissor lift can only move vertically, up and down, so the access ability of this type of the work platform is somewhat limited compared to the aerial device. However, scissor lifts prove to be highly effective for quick delivery of personnel and materials to the elevated construction zones and provide safe, stable temporary working area.
