Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between an articulated and telescopic boom?

A telescopic boom has 2 or more sections that slide out from each other, forming a straight boom. For this reason, they are also commonly known as ‘straight sticks’ and can offer large working heights and horizontal outreach. Articulated booms have a minimum of one hinged joint or ‘knuckle’, enabling the boom to bend. This increases manoeuvrability and creates the ability to have ‘up and over’ clearance.
