Definition: What is a Cherry Picker?

A cherry picker is a hydraulic crane with a railed platform at the end for raising and lowering people. It is also known as boom lift, man lift, basket crane or hydraladder. While typically used in building construction and remodeling, cherry pickers sometimes work in warehouses, utilized in installation, maintenance and repair of warehouse racking, lights, heating units or other mechanical system components at elevated heights.
Orderpickers, specialized forklifts for selecting items from elevated heights in warehouse racking, are sometimes called cherry pickers, too.
There are several types of cherry pickers, such as truck-boon-mounted ones, telescopic booms, articulated booms and trailer-mounted lifts.
Often mounted on the back of a large vehicle (truck), cherry pickers can also be mounted on flat beds or paneled vans. Some types of cherry pickers are mounted on stand-alone trailers or self-moving platforms. A person stands in and works from the bucket or platform. Some cherry pickers are equipped with a duplicate set of controls that allow operators to manipulate the position of the bucket themselves. Some cherry pickers have telescoping capability to adjust the reach of the device, usually with automatic safety controls to prevent tipping over. Other models use articulating boom sections. Cherry pickers run either on electric power supplied from batteries or they use gasoline or diesel engines.

Variations on this term: Cherry Picker may also be referred to as: Orderpicker, Order Picker or Order Selector
