The term “cherry picker” is a general term used to reference many different types of lifts. It can be a reference to articulating boom lifts, telescopic lifts, trailer-mounted booms, spider booms, vertical mast booms or scissor lifts. Each of these lifts is slightly different in design, function and purpose, but each is designed to allow a worker to complete tasks at heights beyond standard human reach.
OSHA regulation prohibits boom lifts from being used outside their intended use, including functioning as a crane. Regulations also prohibit a crane from being used as an aerial platform.
