Rent Towable Booms From The Rental Guys In Moline
Lightweight & Easy To Transport
Towable booms are more commonly used by the homeowner and Do-It-Yourselfer. Usually designed to be lighter and easy to transport to a job site with a pickup truck. The platform capacity is slightly less than a self-propelled boom lift but still suitable for many projects.
The disadvantage of using a tow behind boom versus a self-propelled unit is that they must be moved with a vehicle. If your towable boom needs to be repositioned to reach adjacent areas, you’ll have to retract the boom into its’ stowed position and then reconnected to a vehicle. Towable booms utilize outriggers for stability so care must be taken when positioning the unit to allow for the outrigger footprint.
If you’re thinking about renting a towable unit, make sure you have access to the area you’ll be working from. Depending on the area, you may need to back the unit into position. Even though towable boom lifts are relatively light in weight, they are still capable damaging the underlying surface or leaving ruts in your yard. If you’re concerned about your grass or landscaping, put down some planking or plywood to protect the area.
Towable units have many applications such as painting, gutter cleaning, window washing, soffit repair, tuck pointing and more. They are safer than using ladders or scaffolding and speed up any type of elevated work. Give Andy a call to rent one today. (309) 517-6458
Towable Boom Lifts are a safe tool for working in elevated positions but they must be used properly and respected for their ability to do substantial damage when safety is disregarded. You should always disconnect a towable boom lift from your vehicle prior to operating it. We’ve seen damage to vehicles when trying to operate a towable boom lift while attached to the vehicle’s trailer hitch. Your safest method is to ALWAYS DISCONNECT FROM YOUR VEHICLE and always follow the manufacture’s operating instructions found in the Operators Handbook attached to every unit.
