For building projects, ceiling renovations, or outdoor operations on tall trees and branches in December 2023, cherry pickers are a vital piece of equipment. Because cherry pickers and boom lifts are large pieces of machinery that do not fit into small spaces, however, cherry picker hire is the sensible option.

But if customers are looking to hire a cherry picker for facilities management or anything else, working out what you need to look for can be difficult. Do you need a compact chassis? rough terrain wheels? Long-range powered access? A bit of expert advice can help you to wrap your head around what you need to look for, and we are here to help with that. Below, you will find expert advice on the basics of the process of how to hire cherry pickers!

When to Hire a Cherry Picker

When you’re working on a project with a working height above what you can reach with your arms, or requiring more horizontal outreach than you can do with the equipment you already have, then the best time for hiring the services of cherry pickers or other machine equipment is before you start your project requiring outreach and space management. It can take a little while to get used to the operation of a power construction lift machine, so trying to avoid rushing the job can be very helpful.

In general, if you can’t reach the areas you need to reach in order to complete your project, then some sort of outreach equipment like a cherry picker or other power lift is likely to be needed.

Do you need a License to hire a Cherry Picker?

In most cases, a standard UK car driving license will allow you to operate smaller models of cherry picker, boom lift, or other machinery; anything under 3.5 tons in weight. If you obtained your driver’s license before 1994 in the UK, you could drive vehicles weighing up to 7.5 tons, so you can drive larger machinery easily. The largest models of HGV cherry picker or boom lift are more complex, however, so they will require a trained operator to use them. Training courses are available, or you can hire an operator who has already undergone the necessary training. Reach out to us for more information about cherry picker training!

Types of Cherry Picker for hire

There are several different types of cherry picker that can be hired, each with its own advantages, disadvantages, and prices. The type of cherry picker you need for your job will largely depend on the site in question, as well as the working height for your maintenance or construction efforts. From a bi energy boom lift to telescopic boom lifts, scissor lifts, and other options, there’s sure to be something out there ideally suited for your purposes, even if you’re working on rough terrain. The working height and power source are the most important things to consider, though, and customers should contact us via our website to discuss the best machines for your particular task.

What to Look For

For the best experience and easy access for your target, you should ensure that you consider all of the variables before you pay for a vehicle. Let’s take a look at some of the categories you might want to consider before hiring a vehicle to tackle a tree or some painting.

Equipment Weight

An important thing to consider is the weight of the equipment you’re going to be lifting with your cherry picker. Different machines have different capacities for lifting, and a smaller machine might only have the capacity to lift a limited weight. Remember, it’s not just your weight that has to fit in the capacity, but also the weight of any tools, paints, or other equipment you’re trying to lift. Most larger cherry pickers are designed for industries that use heavier tools, so the limited capacity shouldn’t be too much of a worry, but you should ensure that you rent one with enough weight capacity for your access needs.

Lift Height

Whether you are performing indoor decorating around the top of an indoor area, or a higher task in an outdoor area, the biggest thing you’re going to need to consider is working height. If your chosen cherry picker can’t lift you high enough to reach your target, no other features matter at all!

Different cherry pickers have different working heights, which affect how high the boom can reach. For higher site locations, you’ll want a larger, higher power cherry picker with a higher working height range. Smaller projects can get away with a low power cherry picker with a boom working height only a little higher than your head.

Indoors vs Outdoors

If your site is an indoor one, then you don’t want to hire a large, high power cherry picker, as you simply won’t be able to fit it through the door. Similarly, an outdoor site will probably want a larger machine hire, as the working height required for trees is often higher than anticipated.

Another area of concern here is emissions. A diesel power engine will fill an indoor room with fumes, while an electric one will not produce toxic fumes. Electric machinery might often have a lower working height, but it can be a much safer option to hire!

Power

The main types of cherry picker available to hire are diesel and electric. In general, diesel options are larger, with a higher working height and more horizontal outreach, but can be more expensive and harder to use. Electric models have a lower working height but can be easier to deliver and still offer reasonable horizontal outreach.

Where to Hire a Cherry Picker

Cherry Picker Hire Costs

Cherry pickers are large pieces of machinery but won’t completely empty your bank account to hire. In general, you’re looking at around £2000 for a week’s cherry picker hire, which is affordable enough to make them accessible for even a smaller account.

Whether it’s vertical working height or horizontal outreach you need, cherry picker hire for boom lifts or a simple hydraulic arm can make construction projects, major gardening, or even painting much easier.

FAQs

What is are Articulated Boom Lifts?

Articulating boom lifts sometimes known as as knuckle boom, has a lift arm with multiple sections separated by knuckles, or joints. The arm can be used to move the work platform around and over certain obstacles. Articulating boom lifts are usually used whenever a work needs to access an area that’s particularly tight or difficult to reach or needs to change position frequently. Articulated boom lifts are ideal for applications where height and outreach are required to gain access over obstacles, articulating boom lifts are often times called cherry pickers.

What are Scissor Lifts?

Scissor lifts are an aerial work platform that can lift operatives in vertical direction to carry out a variety of tasks in industries such as manufacturing, facilities management and construction.

What is the purpose of a boom lift?

A Boom lift lets workers access high areas, many models have special equipment for specific jobs, like carrying frames for window glass. Boom lifts are relatively easy to operate, so a single person can operate one alone.
