Aerial Lifts in Kentucky

Aerial lifts create value for electric utility and telecommunications providers in Kentucky

Aerial lifts are important to Kentucky, because they are used to support the high quality and consistent flow of electric power and data to homes and businesses across the state. Seeing a bucket truck in your neighborhood is no big deal – we see them all the time – and that is because they are a primary tool that companies have to maintain overhead networks of cable. Vehicle-mounted aerial lifts serve a number of other industries in Kansas as well. They support municipal fleets with lighting, signage and signal maintenance, bridge maintenance and inspection and forestry tasks as well. One of the newer applications for high-reach aerial lifts is the maintenance of wind turbine blades, which is a booming source of renewable energy.

Bucket Trucks and their applications for Forestry in Kentucky

Just under half of the Commonwealth of Kentucky is covered by forest. As a result, it is a major resource for the people who live there and work the land. Logging, pulp and paper, and wood manufacturing are main sectors of forest commerce in Kentucky, and commerce is balanced against the need to conserve.

The Kentucky Division of Forestry (KDF) protects, conserves and enhances the forest resources of the Commonwealth through a public that is informed of the environmental, social and economic importance of these resources.

Forestry bucket trucks are available to fleets that work in logging, forest management and other heavy duty applications at
