They are known by many names: AWP (aerial work platform), aerial device, EWP (elevating work platform), bucket truck, or MEWP (mobile elevating work platform). Perhaps the most common term, however, is cherry picker. These are mechanical devices used to provide temporary access for people or equipment to inaccessible areas, usually at height. They usually have a boom and basket arrangement to bring people and material to high work areas such as the hub of a wind turbine.
The AWP truck is witnessing a high demand due to the increase in new construction. Aerial lifts, especially boom lifts, are widely used for constructing high-rise buildings.
