Aerial Lifts & Boom Lifts for Construction

Used Boom Lifts For Construction

The best boom lifts for construction take into account the types of terrain you’ll be working on. Your construction site includes a mix of flat, uneven and rough terrain that evolve as your project advances. To give yourself the best access when working above the ground, choose a boom lift that gets you into position with a wide and stable base.

When you browse our selection of boom lifts here at Chicago Industrial, we make it easy to choose the right construction lift that’s adapted to the unique challenges of your site. We list all of the features and specifications you’ll need to select the lift, including important factors such as:

  • Tire type: Large-diameter tires help you get into position even on rough construction sites. If you will be moving your boom lift around frequently, think about choosing tires with adequate grip.
  • Fuel type: A fuel-efficient boom lift is important to keep you on budget, especially during long construction projects. Make sure you have easy access to the fuel type your boom lift uses.
  • Power: For multi-man boom lifts or for lifting heavy equipment and tools, it is critical to choose a boom lift with enough lifting power. An underpowered lift will require multiple lifts and waste time.
  • Mast height: Mast height is one of the limiting factors of your boom lift. Consider not only the typical work height at your construction site, but also the maximum reach you might need from time to time.
  • Maneuverability: If you will be working in tight spaces and surrounded by other equipment, ensure the boom lift you’re choosing has the width and turning radius that provides maximum maneuverability.


A boom lift is a popular and practical addition to any construction. You can use it to transport equipment and material and gain access to elevated areas. Your boom lift also allows you to extend the mast over a pit or trench, giving you the flexibility to work safely during all phases of your construction project.

Don’t leave anything up to chance. Instead, turn to our dedicated Chicago Industrial team and let us help you find the perfect boom lift for your site. We have a large inventory here on our site that you can browse right now, so take a look and choose the boom lift make and model that covers your construction needs.

Aerial Lifts & Boom Lifts Tree Trimming


If your work involves tree trimming, a boom lift is extremely practical. It allows your crew to position for the best access and safest trimming, instead of forcing them to use ladders and platforms that need to be repositioned constantly. A boom lift allows you to get in, raise into position and do your trimming quickly and effectively.

At Chicago Industrial, we carry a range of boom lifts that are perfect for tree trimming. They include the performance and safety features you demand and easy, intuitive controls for getting into the right position for cutting and trimming all types of trees. The best boom lifts for tree trimming combine the following features and capabilities:

  • Large tires with adequate traction: The right tires allow you to access trees in many types of terrain and ensure safe and stable installation of your lift even when the ground isn’t level.
  • 4x4 traction: A four-wheel-drive system adds even more practicality when you need to crawl up steep or uneven terrain or are trimming trees on loose and unstable ground.
  • Mast height: When possible, choose a boom lift that exceeds your typical tree trimming height. This allows you to chose the right position at the level of your branches, instead of working below them.
  • Platform size: If you will have multiple people working on your lift at the same time, choose a boom lift with enough space for both people to safely perform their tree trimming tasks.
  • Maneuverability: For fast and efficient tree trimming, you need a boom lift that allows for easy maneuvering of the lift on the ground as well as for the mast and work platform in the air.


When you’re trimming trees, you need to pay attention to the branches you’re trimming as well as where they’re falling. You don’t have time to waste trying to find a secure position on inadequate equipment and ladders. Instead, opt for the perfect tool for the job: a practical and maneuverable boom lift designed for elevated work.

You can browse our online inventory of boom lifts or contact our Chicago Industrial team. We’ll tell you more about the great features and capabilities of each of our lifts and help you choose the model that suits your tree-trimming needs.

  • Stable platform: When you’re painting complex exterior surfaces at elevated heights, you need a large stable platform that allows you to move into the right position to best apply your paint.
  • Safety features: Safety is key for anyone working on an elevated platform, which is why our lifts include strong railings and gates and built-in security features for the hydraulics and electrical systems.
  • Maneuverability: Every exterior painting job is different, with unique obstacles and terrain to navigate around. Choose a boom lift that is the right size and has a suitable turning radius.
  • Fuel: If you frequently use a boom lift for exterior painting, you’ll want a model that uses readily-available fuel and offers you good fuel economy for lower operating costs for a healthier bottom line.
