The Highest Man Basket Available in NYC

If you need to lift personnel 100 feet or more, a boom truck equipped with a fixed man basket is often the easiest, most cost-effective solution.

Boom trucks are highly maneuverable and affordable. We’ve covered the advantages of boom trucks in this blog, but to reiterate – boom trucks are a smart choice when you need to lift personnel repeatedly at several different points on a job site or need to do so on multiple sites.

The Difference Between Hanging Man Baskets & Fixed Man Baskets

There are two types of man baskets used to lift personnel: fixed man baskets and hanging man baskets. Use of a hanging man basket –  also known as a suspended personnel platform— is prohibited in New York City as per NYC DOB regulations. However, boom trucks with fixed man baskets are approved for use in NYC by the DOB.

(Keep in mind, hanging man baskets are available as needed for use in LI, NJ, and the greater NY area.)

Questions to Ask When Renting Boom Trucks with Fixed Man Baskets

NYC presents some unique challenges for anyone involved in construction, repair, and other major projects. There’s a strong emphasis on safety, with more crane and boom truck inspections than ever before. Keep in mind— if violations are found, it’s not just the crane and rigging company that’s in trouble. Property owners and general contractors may also face steep fines.

When considering where you’ll get your boom truck and fixed man basket from, sidestep the hassle by asking about operator qualifications and the company’s experience doing work in the five boroughs. Choose an experienced, professional crane and rigging company like L&M Crane & Rigging. We promise, you’ll be glad you did.
