What is the Life Expectancy of a Manitou Boom Lift?
A boom lift can last quite a long time with the proper care—30 years of use is a good rule of thumb. Almost like a car’s odometer, boom lifts can have an hour meter that keeps track of the time a boom lift has been engaged, giving you a sense of the wear that the hydraulic system has seen.
The intensity of the use you put a boom lift through and whether it receives proper care is the biggest factor in the machine’s lifespan, not the actual age of the machine. A couple of years carrying heavy loads without any regard for maintenance can put a quick end to the life of a boom lift, but a lift that sees light use and proper care can last decades.
