What and Why an Articulating Booms

Feb 22, 2016

Articulating booms are aerial work platforms with multiple boom sections that hinge — or “articulate” — allowing the operator to gain access to work areas over obstacles and barriers. Also referred to as “knuckle booms” or “up-andover booms,” these versatile products are perfect for tight access and hard-to-reach areas.

Genie articulating Z™-boom lifts provide the ultimate in versatility with up, out and over positioning capabilities for hard-to-access work areas.

Why choose an articulating boom? 

You need access in confined work areas. Narrow models are ideal for the tightest, most congested spaces. Genie 62-ft articulating Z-booms and under, for example, have zero tailswing, which means the far end of the turntable does not extend beyond the edge of the drive chassis when it’s rotated.


You need to reach over obstacles. Articulating booms have less horizontal outreach than telescopic booms, but they provide greater versatility to reach up, over and out to access work areas. You’re working indoors. Industrial models use DC electric power or clean-burning (LPG) fuel and have non-marking tires for indoor use.


You need to travel over rough terrain. Rough-terrain models are designed for rugged, unimproved construcUp, Around and Over | Page 1 | White Paper tion sites. Features include petrol/LPG or diesel engines, lug-tread tires, an active oscillating axle (for enhanced traction) and four-wheel drive.


You need extra reach from the platform. Most Genie Z-booms offer a boom extension, called a “jib,” between the end of the primary boom and the platform. Jib booms add another articulation point for the platform to move up and down, and on some models, side-to-side.
