Why rent an aerial lift?
Cost-Effective: Purchasing a towable aerial lift can be expensive, and it may not be justifiable if you don’t have a frequent need for it. Renting allows you to access the equipment only when necessary, saving you money in the long run.
Temporary Projects: If you have a short-term project that requires elevated access, renting is often the better choice. Common examples include seasonal maintenance, construction projects, or event setups.
Maintenance and Repairs: If your own equipment is undergoing maintenance or repairs, renting a towable aerial lift can help you maintain business continuity without disruptions.
Flexibility: Renting gives you the flexibility to choose the right lift for the specific job. Different models come with various height and reach capabilities, making it easy to pick the one that matches your project requirements.
Transportation Ease: Towable aerial lifts are designed to be towed behind a vehicle, which makes them easy to transport to different job sites. This can save time and effort in moving equipment.
No Storage Costs: Owning heavy equipment like aerial lifts can also come with storage costs and maintenance responsibilities. Renting eliminates these concerns since you only need the equipment for a short period.
Reduced Liability: When you rent equipment, the rental company typically handles maintenance, safety inspections, and insurance, reducing your liability in case of accidents or breakdowns.
Latest Technology: Rental companies often update their fleets with the latest equipment, which means you can access newer, more efficient, and safer models without the need for capital investment.
Expert Support: Rental companies provide training and support for using the equipment safely and effectively. This can be particularly valuable for occasional users who may not be familiar with the operation and safety protocols of aerial lifts.
Scaling with Demand: Renting allows you to scale your equipment needs with the demand of your business. You can rent additional lifts as needed for larger or more complex projects.
Are aerial lifts safe?
Aerial lifts can be safe when used properly and when the necessary safety precautions are followed. However, like any heavy equipment, they can be dangerous if not operated and maintained correctly. Safety is of paramount importance when working with aerial lifts, and here are some key factors that contribute to their safety:
Training and Certification: Operators should receive comprehensive training and certification in the safe operation of aerial lifts. This training covers the equipment’s controls, safety procedures, potential hazards, and emergency protocols.
Regular Maintenance: Aerial lifts should be regularly inspected and maintained to ensure they are in proper working condition. This includes checking for wear and tear, hydraulic system integrity, and electrical components.
Safety Features: Modern aerial lifts come equipped with numerous safety features, such as emergency stop buttons, overload sensors, tilt alarms, and fall protection systems. These features help prevent accidents and injuries.
Fall Protection: Operators and workers on the platform must wear appropriate fall protection equipment, such as harnesses and lanyards. This helps prevent falls from the elevated platform.
Load Capacity: Aerial lifts have specified load capacity limits. Operators must never exceed these limits to prevent tip-overs or structural failures.
Proper Use: Aerial lifts should only be used for their intended purpose. This includes adhering to height and reach limitations and not using the equipment in ways that can compromise stability or safety.
Stable Ground: Aerial lifts should be set up on level and stable ground to prevent tipping. Outriggers and stabilizers should be used as required by the manufacturer.
Weather Considerations: Aerial lifts should not be used in adverse weather conditions, such as high winds, thunderstorms, or icy surfaces. Operators must be aware of changing weather conditions and cease work if conditions become unsafe.
Regular Inspections: Conduct daily pre-operation inspections to identify any potential issues with the equipment. If any problems are discovered, they should be addressed before use.
Communication: Effective communication between operators and ground personnel is crucial for safe operation. Hand signals or two-way radios can help ensure safe maneuvering and coordination.
Safety Guidelines: Operators should be aware of and follow safety guidelines and regulations specific to their region, which may include OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration) regulations in the United States.
Emergency Response Plan: Have an established emergency response plan in place, including rescue procedures, in case an operator or worker becomes stranded or injured while on an aerial lift.
