Indoor Uses for a Cherry Picker

Outdoor landscapers, construction companies, farmers and utility workers often use a cherry picker when they have to reach high places outdoors. This versatile equipment can move over rugged terrain and elevate workers so they can pick fruit, trim tree branches, install exterior building elements and perform a range of other outdoor tasks.

Yet in addition to outdoor work, warehouse environments are hiring cherry pickers from Power Access. Also called scissor lifts and boom cranes, an electric cherry picker can be hired for different tasks, such as to help with building maintenance and to fill product orders.

Warehouse Maintenance

Maintenance problems aren’t always located on the ground floor. Lighting issues, roof leaks, and failing HVAC ductwork located along the ceiling can be easily reached using a cherry picker. A cherry picker allows both workers and tools to be safely lifted to the appropriate height.

A cherry picker is more stable than using ladders or scaffolding. The battery electric machines can be moved into place with little effort and stabilized to enhance worker safety. The maintenance workers can have all their tools available and within reach.

Sorting and Picking Products

Warehouse order pickers may use pallet rack systems that can reach heights of 12 feet, 16 feet and 20 feet. Power Access cherry pickers are used to reach tall heights in narrow aisles. When a fork lift is too bulky to navigate down the aisle, the narrow stature of the cherry picker is ideal as the warehouse worker can pick products from the shelf to fill multiple orders.

Cherry pickers also work well in warehouse environments without causing damage or poor indoor quality. While diesel-powered cherry pickers are suitable outdoors, electric ones using a rechargeable battery won’t emit harmful exhaust into the air. Good air quality can be maintained, especially in warehouses that require clean and sanitary environments for their products such as companies in the food, pharmaceutical and medical industries. The non-marking tires can move across the floor without tearing up the cement.

Renovation and Installation Uses

In addition to performing regular building maintenance, warehouse workers also use cherry pickers to perform renovations and installations. To free up warehouse floor space, mechanical systems will be elevated and suspended onto the ceiling. A cherry picker hired from Power Access allows workers to install and upgrade these mechanical systems with ease.

Materials are safely loaded and raised with the worker on a cherry picker as they don’t have to try to carry the items on their back when going up ladders. Workers can easily paint walls, install pipes and renovate warehouse spaces to make them more functional.
