The answer is simple they are all the same thing. It as the name says. It is a forklift the can reach or boom out. A forklift can lift a load straight up and down. A reach forklift can boom out as much as 55 feet. That is the up and out reach. If you went straight out it would tip over. Most reach forklift rentals range from the 5519 to the 1255. The 5519 is a small boom forklift and it can lift 5,500 pounds and reach 19 feet. The 1255 is a 12,000 pound reach forklift that can boom out 55 feet. You can get larger ones if you have the right need. Xtreme Manufacturing makes the XR7038. The XR7038 lifts 70,000 pounds and reaches 38 feet. It is the largest reach forklift in North America.
You need to know a few things.
1. How much you will be lifting?
2. How far up do you need to reach?
3. How far out do you need to reach?
The first answer will change the farther you boom out. A 12,000 lbs reach forklift will only lift 500 lbs at 30 feet without tipping. Think of a teeter totter and as you move the fulcrum the load weight to maintain balance will also change. Please look at the load charts before ordering your boom fork lift rental.
