An aerial lift serves many purposes on a construction site or other type of job site. This piece of equipment is also known as an elevating work platform, aerial device, bucket truck, or cherry picker, and it provides access to higher levels of buildings, power lines, and roofs. When you don’t have access to an aerial platform, workers are unable to reach these higher levels, which slows down the progress on any type of building that is more than one story tall, as well as any projects that require access to roofing or power lines. Aerial platforms differ from cranes in their weight limits, as the aerial platform usually has a weight limit of less than one ton. A single worker can often set up and operate an aerial platform on their own, as long as they are properly trained to do so, which means they don’t need the assistance of other workers on the site.
It’s evident that an aerial platform is a must-have on nearly any job site. However, the cost of this piece of equipment can be out of reach, especially for smaller companies that don’t have the budget to purchase various pieces of expensive equipment. At Eagle Rentals, we can solve this common problem through our construction equipment rental program. We offer various pieces of equipment for rent to those located throughout the Cornelius, North Carolina area, and many of our clients are construction companies and contractors who need these pieces to handle various types of work.
