Brief introduction of trailer mounted boom lift type

The trailer mounted boom lift also called towable boom lift or cherry picker, it has a compact structure, adopts new high-quality steel, high strength, light weight, fast erection speed, and automatic hydraulic support legs, which can be quickly erected safely and easy to operate. The worktable can be raised and extended horizontally, and the span is large to increase the work area. It can be rotated 360°, the platform can be automatically leveled, and it is easy to cross obstacles to reach the working position. It is an ideal climbing equipment. Easy to transport, can be directly and quickly towed.

Main structure of trailer mounted boom lift type

Trailer mounted boom lift consists of several parts: vehicle chassis system, traction system, lifting system, control system and power system.

The chassis system includes axle and chassis. The axle is a two wheel axle produced by us professionally, with a track of 1430mm, an axle tube of 80 * 80 square tube, and a rated load of 2.8 tons. The chassis is a boom lift chassis professionally designed by our company, which is welded by square tubes and includes four legs, traction arm and vehicle base.

The traction system is a professional trailer hitch AL-KO brand imported from Italy. It is equipped with three braking systems. The first is a manual braking system, the second is a mechanical braking system, when the trailer hitch feels impacted, the lift will brake automatically, and the third is an electronic braking system, when the brake light of the tractor is on, the lift will brake automatically to ensure traction safety.

The lifting system includes arm and arm base. The arms with different lifting heights have different lengths, but they are all composed of three arms. One end of the small arm is connected to the working frame. The standard size is 900 * 700mm and the rated load is 200kg. Some models of arms are telescopic. The traditional retractable structure is plastic and not durable. Now we have upgraded the aluminum one to be more durable. The standard rotation of the arm base is 359 degrees, but we can also customize 360 degrees for you.

The control system is controlled by PLC, and the base controller is a touch screen, which can control the lifting of four outriggers at the same time, as well as the lifting and rotation of arms. There is also a controller in the work frame, which can operate the lifting and rotation freely when workers are working.

The power system is prevented from being in the chassis. The standard power system can choose diesel engine, petrol engine, battery and DC, or any two hybrid power. The hydraulic pump station adopts domestic famous brand Anshan Lisheng, the oil cylinder adopts domestic famous brand Hengyu, the battery adopts domestic famous brand Zibo torch, with MSDS maritime safety appraisal certificate, and the diesel engine adopts China's most famous brand Changchai, The petrol engine adopts the famous Japanese brand Honda, and the charger adopts the famous Taiwanese brand Longsheng, which has a wider range of applicable voltage and faster charging.

For some countries that have special requirements for EPA, our boom lift is a very good choice.

The rated load is 200kg, and the size of the platform is 900*700mm. It can be used for two workers to work in the basket at the same time, worker can carry some tools for high-altitude work. As a manufacturer, this load can be customized for you, such as 300kg, and the size of the platform can also be customized for you to a certain extent. We can also add a power supply or water pipe in the basket. As long as you have these needs, we will try our best to meet them.

The lifting height of the Platform can reach 12m, the working height can reach 14m, the maximum working radius can reach 8m, which means the maximum distance that can be reached in horizontal direction, the operation can be completed across obstacles or high walls.

The maximum opening size of outrigger is 4200 * 4200mm, if you need a larger or smaller support range, we can also meet it.

The controller includes a platform controller and a bottom controller. When the lift is working, the bottom controller can be used to control the operation of the lift, or the height and direction of the lift can be adjusted by the staff on the platform according to their own needs.

The bottom controller is also equipped with a PLC display, which can display the status information of the lift in real time, and the display is touch-controlled and supports English display.

THTCZB-12 Crawler Boom lift type: 

1. The Crawler boom lift is improved from the conventional boom lift. In terms of working height and working radius, it is the same as the conventional boom lift. The difference between the two is that the chassis of this model is changed to a tracked chassis and has the function of self-propelled. , while retaining the four movable outriggers to provide the stability of the boom lift at work. The crawler boom lift is a product upgraded by our company on the basis of the trailer mounted boom lift in order to adapt to the use of uneven ground. Two professional wear-resistant rubber crawlers can walk on earth ground or any uneven ground without trailer traction. When using, it is also necessary to open the outrigger to achieve more stable lifting, and the outrigger can be equipped with one key automatic leveling function, which can be used even on the sloping ground.
