Diesel Boom Lift Hire Melbourne

Want to talk with one of our hire staff?

Knuckle boom lifts are similar to any kind of aerial work platform because they are designed to provide more access to hard to reach areas. However, the knuckle boom lift stands out among the boom lifts because it does not only give vertical and horizontal access but it provides an up and over reach. Working with existing fixtures like walls and machineries is now easier. 

 Eastern Access Group has a fleet of well-kept scissor and boom lift hire in Melbourne. Depending on your needs, we provide the access equipment that is right for you. 

It is common to find knuckle boom lifts that can extend from 30 to 40 ft in height. But, there are some manufacturers and brands that offer 60ft boom lifts. Did you know that the world's tallest boom lift has a height capacity of 185 ft? 


Eastern Access Group provides 45ft and 60ft Diesel-powered Knuckle Boom Lift hire in areas all over Melbourne. We ensure our clients that all our machinery and equipment are regularly checked and meticulously maintained. You can be sure of quality for the money you are paying! 

The simplest way to tell them apart is that telescopic (straight boom lift) models are better for moving people and stuff around obstacles and into other positions with agility, while articulating models (knuckle boom lift) are better for moving people and materials around obstacles and into different positions with agility.


You can choose whether you want a straight boom lift or a knuckle boom lift hire for you worksite because we have both options  available for you! 

Knuckle boom lifts are also known in the access and construction industry as an articulating boom lift. Some people also interchangeably use cherry picker, manlift, and basket crane instead of boom lift. 

The answer to this question is very subjective and dependent on the kind of job you are to accomplish and the environment of the worksite. If the work is to take place indoors, it is better to choose an electrical-powered boom lift because it produces less noise and does not emit toxic fumes when used. If the work requires lots of heavy lifting and must be done in rough terrain, the diesel boom lift is your best choice. 


Whether it is electric or diesel, hiring a boom lift from us will be the best decision you will make. Eastern Access Group Melbourne only employs the most seasoned aerial work platform operators who will help you complete projects on time and within budget.
