Hire your cherry picker from ASHBROOK and reach new heights.

A cherry picker is another name for an articulating boom and other Mobile Elevated Work Platforms (MEWPs).  They are known for their versatility in helping experienced access professionals work at height in a number of industries.

They can be used for internal or external applications with differing fuel sources and boom capabilities meaning there’s a cherry picker for most jobs!

Check out Niftylift’s list of top 10 uses for a cherry picker below:

1. Access lifts for building maintenance

With the ability to hold operators and their tools, MEWPs are ideal for exterior building maintenance tasks. Access hard-to-reach areas for tasks such as window cleaning, painting and repairs.

2. Construction projects MEWPs

A safer and more advanced alternative to ladders, cherry pickers are frequently used in construction sites for jobs like roofing, installations or accessing high scaffolding. ​​​​​​

3. Warehouse operations cherry pickers

Operational indoors and outdoors, they are perfect for large-scale warehouses. Looking for a machine perfect for reaching high items, won’t damage any flooring and ideal for narrow-aisle work? Check out the HR12NE.

4. Electrical work access lift support

5. Signage installation- reach those heights with a rented cherry picker

Install, replace and write signs on buildings, billboards and highways on a vast scale. Able to accommodate workers and their supplies, cherry pickers offer a stable platform, help streamline the process and minimise downtime.

6. Tree maintenance MEWP use

Arborists and landscapers benefit greatly from MEWPs when it comes to tree pruning, trimming and removal. Their precise manoeuvrability and extended reach provide a safer and more effective alternative to traditional climbing methods.

7. Emergency services with access lift support

Who knew cherry pickers could help save lives? During emergency situations, such as firefighting or rescue operations, they are essential tools for reaching elevated locations quickly. Firefighters can use them to access upper floors, balconies or rooftops while rescue teams can employ cherry pickers for swift and safe evacuation of individuals trapped in high-rise buildings.

8. Stadium maintenance- boom lift for when height matters

Maintaining huge structures like sports stadiums involves a wealth of tasks including lighting maintenance, scoreboard repairs and general upkeep. Simplify these operations with a cherry picker, offering a stable platform for technicians to access elevated areas, ensuring the smooth functioning of stadiums and enhancing the spectator experience.

9. Film and photography lift hire

In the world of media production, cherry pickers have become indispensable extras. From film production and photography to large-scale events, they can assist with the suspension of equipment and allow camera operators to deliver unique perspectives. Capture stunning aerial shots, panoramic views and breathtaking visuals for a range of media outputs.

10. Horticulture and farming- the invaluable use of MEWPs

In agriculture, these machines are invaluable. From maintaining tall farming equipment to fruit harvesting, a cherry picker is far more secure and efficient than ladders. In fact, the original purpose for a cherry picker was harvesting fruit – hence its name!
