Deep Rooted Success of Forestry Bucket Trucks
As the dynamics of vegetation management has evolved, so has the commercial work trucks that keep the industry going in the right direction. Forestry, tree care, and vegetation management require multi-faceted performance from their work fleets in order to get their jobs done. Bucket trucks with aerial lifts, storage space, trailers, and other highly specialized equipment are constantly being improved to serve the needs of the growing and ever-changing field of the forestry-related industries.
Bucket Truck Overview
A Bucket Truck is a utility truck that’s upfitted with a hydraulic boom, or pole, which is made for a man-carrying bucket at the end of it. The bucket serves to extend the reach so that a job can be performed safely and accurately.
Vegetation management, landscape companies, and forestry service businesses frequently use Bucket Trucks to access tree limbs that need to be cut down or pruned. Utility companies like gas, water, electric, cable, telephone and disaster relief fleets also use them to trim limbs and foliage that are obstructing power lines.
