What is a boom lift?

A boom lift and scissor lift are two familiar types of aerial lifts, in which they both allow you to reach higher access points standing from the elevated work platform. What’s unique about a boom lift however, is that it can extend both horizontally and vertically. These lifts are often operated from the work platform and are able to be manipulated through their hydraulic joint system.
