An aerial platform, also called a bucket truck, elevating work platform, or aerial device, is a mechanical piece of equipment allowing access for people to reach higher levels. Without this type of equipment on a job site, many areas will remain inaccessible to workers, including upper levels of buildings, roofs, or power lines. You may also hear people refer to this platform as a cherry picker. It differs from a crane in its weight limit, which is usually less than a ton. An individual worker can typically set up and operate an aerial platform on a job site, not requiring assistance from other workers.
Some aerial platforms are also outfitted with compressed air connectors or electrical outlets for power tools. Specialized platforms can hold certain equipment that allows for the transport of glass for windows or other items that may be dangerous for an individual worker to try to carry. When your site is in need of an aerial platform, contact us at Eagle Rentals. We carry a wide range of options from leading manufacturers in the industry, all available for rent under short-term and long-term contracts.
