Significantly reduce manhandling of shipments and inventory with these convenient units, which install easily on a truck’s forks in minutes. Slip the lift right onto the truck without any additional maintenance. A 48-inch safety chain keeps the boom lift secured to the truck’s frame. By allowing you to reach through and over possible obstructions, boom lifts decrease your employees’ workload while speeding up the entire process.
