An advantage of the electric aerial work platforms is its ability to maneuver in tight spaces and hard-to-reach areas. Most of these units are self-propelled. There are models for use on smooth, hard, level surfaces such as concrete, asphalt, or tile and others for use on rough terrain..
Where overhead work is required, plants use these devices in maintenance and repair functions. Since there are many designs for electric aerial work platforms, several types can be used in the same application. The selection depends on each plant's individual requirements.
