A subcategory of aerial work platforms, cherry pickers are aerial devices that look somewhat like a crane. Designed with joints (often multiple ones) for maximum flexibility - a cherry picker was first developed to be used in orchards, which explains the name. They’re excellent in construction, power line maintenance, tree trimming and they’re even used by some fire departments (1).
A Complicated Move
Yet, for all its strengths - the cherry picker can be a bear to haul long distances. The articulating sections must be secured correctly, otherwise part of the arm could swing off the transit rig, while it’s traveling down the highway. This type of nightmare scenario could result in damage to the picker, the truck, other vehicles on the road and even cause loss of life.
