FAQs About Towable Boom Lifts

We offer a range of towable boom lifts for indoor and outdoor work. These lifts are also called tow-behind lifts and trailer boom lifts, ranging from small and compact 30-foot to 36-foot models up to large models with heights up to 45 feet. Towable man lifts are meant to fold down to a compact footprint, providing extra maneuverability and flexibility when working in narrow areas. With our selection of towable boom lifts for rent, you can save time on construction sites, tree trimming projects and maintenance applications that require added mobility.
