Aerial lifts are used for tons of different projects from construction to warehousing. There are a bunch of different types of aerial lifts to choose from and some are designed specifically for use inside warehouses, while others are designed for film crews, or construction sites. When it comes to renting an aerial lift the main features to keep in mind are the reach, which is how high the platform can go, and capacity, which refers to the weight that a platform can lift. Aerial lifts that are made to only lift one person are often called man lifts, while most other lifts are referred to as platform lifts. Most lifts come with an engine and are self powered, but some lifts are trailer mounted so if you want to transport them you need a vehicle with a trailer hitch.
