A towable boom lift is more economical than a self-propelled lift. There are towable boom lifts that can go as high as 100 feet, but the majority of the ones you find in the US are 35-60 feet. There are two types of towable boom lifts. The first is the articulated knuckle boom, and the second is the telescopic boom. Knuckle booms tend to be the most popular, because of how far they can reach, in comparison to the telescopic boom.
- Towable boom lifts can go up as high as 100 feet, but in the US, the majority go 35-60 feet.
- There are generally two types of towable boom lifts – articulated knuckle booms and telescopic booms.
