A cherry picker truck can be extremely useful in a number of situations, since one will provide you with access to those hard-to-reach places and serve a range of purposes in different working environments. Buying used cherry picker trucks means you can reap the benefits of this technology without breaking the bank. However, when you are considering the second-hand vehicles that are available in this category, taking the time to check up on the state of repair will help you to avoid any problems.
Although cherry pickers may not need to handle the same kinds of loads as regular commercial vehicles, they have complicated machinery on board that merits proper inspection.
Smaller cherry picker trucks come with the elevating assembly built into the body of a standard Transit-style van, which makes them relatively manoeuvrable on the roads while still retaining the unique functionality when they are stationary. Because they may have covered long distances, check that regular servicing and maintenance have been carried out on these more compact cherry picker trucks, keeping an eye out for the evidence of wear and tear to the tyres, suspension and steering.

Part exchange to clear. Good little cherry picker. Needs MOT
Larger cherry picker trucks may come with a front cab that is separate from the rear trailer to which the picker itself is attached, giving you a better opportunity to look at the workings of this mechanism and check that everything is in good condition. These trucks can handle larger, more elaborate pickers and loads, meaning they may also feature jack legs to boost stability and have a telescoping swivel that can reach greater heights. Looking out for fully working hydraulics and electronics on these systems will show you whether or not a used cherry picker truck is worth the asking price.
Keep in mind that as well as offering different features relating to the height that can be reached, cherry picker trucks will also have mechanisms that can bear different maximum loads and offer different capacities of baskets. Some will allow for one person to be lifted aloft at a time, while others have room for two or more passengers, depending on the configuration and other variables. This should give you a good indication of which model you should pick, because of course you will have an idea of how you will be deploying the vehicle and whether a smaller or larger unit will make a better investment.
With all the work that the cherry picker mechanism will be doing, you cannot afford to buy a truck which is not in very good condition, unless this is reflected by the price. The picker should be able to operate without a hitch, and you should also take into account any other features that may be included, such as a rotating basket, since these will be critical in determining its usefulness. The tonnage of the payload that the trailer can handle on the larger models or the interior capacity and space of the smaller van-style cherry picker trucks will also be on your checklist.
