Boom Description

Utility Trucks, Cargo Vans and Flatbed Trucks

A “boom” describes an external type of arm of the truck body base, a base that is usually a flatbed or utility truck body and sometimes placed around a cargo van. These external arms are normally in the form of a bucket platform (bucket trucks) that holds one or two men that reaches out to a higher area, some 12ft up to 100 plus feet from the ground. These booms can also be in the form of a crane to grab items from a higher area like roofs or structures. These types of booms are typically used to work in areas that are not closely reachable from the ground.
