A cherry picker is the safest, most productive, most time-efficient and most cost-effective equipment for working at height.
Cherry pickers are exponentially safer than ladders or scaffolding because it features guardrails to prevent falls, reduces fatigue associated with climbing up and down, provides space for tools and materials so the worker has both hands free, and allows for accurate positioning to prevent over-reach and provide ergonomic work conditions.
Workers who can avoid tedious and tiring climbing by reaching the precise aerial job site quickly and safely with a cherry picker; who have all the tools and materials – including electrical points – required on the platform with them; and has both hands free to work quickly and safely, can focus on the job at hand and are more productive.
Climbing up and down a ladder continuously to reposition it as the job progresses is not only risky, it is also time consuming. Erecting scaffolding, getting the required approval before use and dismantling or repositioning scaffolding can add days to your schedule.
The right cherry picker requires zero set up time, can be positioned accurately to ensure the most ergonomic work conditions and can be moved by the worker on the platform while the platform is elevated. This translated into massive time savings and thus fewer workers on site.
In saving the time required to complete each task, significantly increasing the productivity of workers and reducing the risk of safety incidents, cherry pickers reduce the cost of operations significantly.
