Boom lift is a type of aerial work platform. It is also called by cherry picker, man lift or basket crane. The three types are telescopic boom lifts (straight boom lifts or stick booms), articulating boom lifts (knuckle boom lifts) and towable trailer boom lifts.

Telescopic boom lifts is able to reach at a tall position and can be used to access very high work areas. With 4WD(4 wheels drive)e it can be driven over rough terrain or work on unstable sites. Telescopic boom trucks enhance the ease and use of lifting personnel with a work platform, allowing for very smooth and direct movement: just elevate the boom and telescope out. Working heights can reach up to 207′ or more with a boom truck, and the ride is very smooth and stable.

The main disadvantages of telescopic boom lifts is that they are less maneuverable than articulating boom lifts, so it is less suitable for use in tight spaces or areas with obstacles. They also have a larger turning radius and tail swing, which can make them more difficult to maneuver in crowded areas.
