Elevating work platform is the term used to describe all configurations of EWPs being self-propelled, trailer mounted (towable) or truck mounted. This  term is not used when the work platform is an attachment such as a “personnel basket” or “cage” fitted to plant such as a forklift. Below are pictures of the most commonly found EWPs.
