The Highest Man Basket Available in NYC
When you need to lift personnel to a considerable height – think 100 feet or more – a boom truck equipped with a fixed man basket is often the easiest, most cost-effective solution.
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. Boom trucks are highly maneuverable and affordable.
Hanging Man Baskets vs Fixed Man Baskets: What’s the Difference?
There are two ways to lift personnel: in a fixed man basket or in a hanging man basket. A hanging man basket is sometimes known as a suspended personnel platform. Be aware that NYC DOB regulations prohibit the use of hanging man baskets in New York City. However, our boom trucks are capable of reaching 200 feet with a fixed man basket – the highest in the industry! 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 a Boom Truck & Fixed Man Basket
New York City presents some unique challenges for anyone involved in construction, repair, and other major projects. The emphasis on safety is strong, and this year, we’ve seen more crane and boom truck inspections than ever before. It’s not just the crane and rigging company that’s in trouble when violations are found. The property owner and general contractors can also face steep fines.
Who needs that hassle? When considering where you’ll get your boom truck and fixed man basket from, ask about operator qualifications and the company’s experience doing work in the five boroughs. Choose an experienced, professional crane and rigging company – you’ll be glad you did.
