Everything you need to know about hiring a cherry picker

What is a cherry picker?

Cherry pickers, also known as an elevated work platform or knuckle boom lift, is a type of equipment which consists of a bucket or platform attached to the end of a hydraulic lifting system. The boom articulates at the ‘knuckle’ near the middle of the crane, letting it fold back like a finger. These equipment are highly versatile and are very reliable as they allow you to operate on an elevated platform.

Role of a cherry picker

Cherry pickers and knuckle boom lifts are not just for picking cherries, they can also be utilised for the following:

  • Painting or cleaning
  • Sign work
  • Tree lopping
  • Electrical and plumbing activities
  • Installation tasks
  • General construction activities
  • Fire services

Types of cherry pickers / knuckle boom lifts

Knuckle boom lifts and cherry pickers are designed to access hard to reach or high areas and they make it convenient when working around obstacles, that’s why they come in various lift heights

What to consider before hiring a cherry picker / knuckle boom lift

Please be aware that you must be a trained and licensed to operate a cherry picker as they are potentially very dangerous due to the heights involved. If you ever need to move the machinery with the platform elevated, travel slowly and don’t make any sudden movement as they can tip over.

How much does a cherry picker / knuckle boom lift cost?

Knuckle boom lift hire rates would depend on how long you would need it for as well as the size or height you would need for the job. Other factors such as hiring with or without an operator also matters. On average, a cherry picker or knuckle boom lift will cost you around $210 a day, without an operator.
