Using a Cherrypicker

A cherrypicker and other powered access platform products are essential pieces of equipment for carrying out a wide range of tasks. Cherrypicker machines are used to work at different heights off the ground and provide access to otherwise unreachable places. Powered access platforms like cherrypicker machines use a hydraulic system that lifts the platform into the air. Some cherrypicker machines can be used both indoors and outdoors depending on the job it is needed for. There are now many small cherrypicker machines that are designed to be compact and easily transportable and will fit onto the back on trucks so they can be transported for use in a number of different professions.

Before you use a cherrypicker or any other powered access platform you should undergo formal training so you can use the equipment safely and responsibly and ensure you don’t harm yourself or others. Many workplaces will no longer allow people you use a cherrypicker unless they have had formal training and this is a requirement of the provision and use of work equipment regulations (PUWER). Companies that sell or hire cherrypicker and powered access platform machines tend to offer professional training courses to ensure you use their equipment correctly and safely.

A cherrypicker tends to be used for tasks such as replacing street lights, repairing overhead cables, external window cleaning, roof repairs and maintenance, replacing billboard advertising, cleaning tasks and also on building and construction sites. The person using the cherrypicker should be harnessed to the machine in case they were to trip or slip in the platform whilst working. Some cherrypicker machines and other powered access platform devices can be operated with one person if the controls are mounted onto the platform itself. Others require two people and this tends to be for larger powered access platform machines. These will have a cabin where a driver will operate the machine and the other person will go up on the platform to carry out the task.
