If you need a job that requires reaching tall spaces but need flexibility, reach, and mobility that ladders will just make more complicated or dangerous, using vertical mast lifts could be exactly what you need to get the job done in the quickest, safest way possible.

Vertical mast lifts is the perfect piece of machinery for jobs like duct work, painting multi-level houses, cleaning upper level windows, installing electrical wiring, or even routine jobs like cleaning out the gutters and hanging up Christmas lights. Because you have the safety of the basket, you have a lot more mobility than you would have on an ordinary ladder. You also have the ability to carry any tools and materials necessary for the job all at one time.

Trying to climb up a ladder while carrying lumber and all the tools necessary to fix a rotting board under housing shingles is not only physical demanding, it can be dangerous as well—especially if you are dealing with a 2 story home where a fall can result in tragic injuries.

By using a vertical mast lift you can simply load your materials and tools and securely lift yourself to any height you need to work at; you will then have both your hands free with added room to move around inside the basket guaranteeing you get the job done as effectively and quickly as possible.

While vertical mast lifts are superior when it comes to moving in a single up-and-down direction, there are times when the operator will need to make more complex movements to get around possible obstacles. If you are trying to work on a building and there are large shrubbery that will not allow you to position your lift directly against the side of the building, for example, being able to lift into the air and subsequently move horizontal to your destination is ideal. For movements like this, using a mast boom lift will give you the height you need and the maneuverability to get into hard-to-reach areas.

It should be noted, though, that a mast boom lift will not be able to carry the same amount of weight horizontally that a vertical boom mast can carry straight up and down. This is due to the nature of the boom lift’s joint structure; while it allows horizontal movement, it is slightly weaker where the segments join together.
