Insulated Aerial Lifts for the Electric Power Distribution
Bucket Trucks by Versalift in the Power Distribution Industry
Insulated aerial lifts and digger derricks play a critical role in the Electric Power Distribution Industry. Because the majority of electrical power is distributed to homes and businesses through overhead means, insulated aerial lifts provide linemen safe access to the distribution lines they must manage and maintain. Since its founding in 1965, Versalift has been an innovator in the development of insulated aerial lifts, and has partnered with many of the world’s largest electrical power distribution organizations. With increasing demand for uninterrupted, inexpensive energy, the companies that build, repair, maintain and manage electrical power distribution networks need the tools to meet that demand. Versalift insulated aerial lifts, with a reputation for safety, reliability and overall quality, are those tools.
The electric power distribution industry faces several challenges. Growing demand from customers and heavy investment in upgrading existing aging infrastructure are two major hurdles. Each year, investor-owned utilities, electricity co-ops and other organizations are investing billions of dollars in improvements to distribution infrastructure. With the onus on electrical distribution companies to improve efficiency and lower costs, fleet managers need to make sure they purchase or lease the bucket trucks that will help their organizations continue to safely do just that.
Steadily growing demand for more consistent, less expensive energy is driving change in the electrical power distribution industry.
The Versalift Fleet of Insulated Aerial Lifts for Electrical Power Distribution.
Versalift provides insulated aerial lifts with material handling options and digger derricks to hundreds of electrical power distribution maintenance fleets around the world. Versalift bucket trucks come in a variety of working heights and are engineered to serve the specific set of functions required in the construction, maintenance and management of the grid.
Investor owned utilities, electrical co-ops and other power distribution organizations must ensure the safety of their people. Because electricity is dangerous, it is crucial that fleet managers choose the safest equipment available to them. At Versalift, safety is our highest priority. We have invented several safety innovations, including ElectroGuard and TruGuard. ElectroGuard is available on every insulated telescopic and articulated telescopic aerial lift up to 60 feet. Many of our lifts can be customized with TruGuard™, our patented upper control isolation system. The optional TruGuard™ Safety System provides an added layer of protection to linemen who are working at the platform.
At Versalift, every insulated aerial lift is designed to exceed the dielectric requirements of ANSI and OSHA

Unique Versalift Features
The culture of innovation and quality at Versalift powers our passion to be the best.
- ElectroGuard – ElectroGuard, on articulated/telescopic insulated aerial lifts, provides the ability to certify a unit to ANSI category C, with the platform fully retracted.
- TruGuard – Versalift’s proprietary upper control isolating system provides another level of protection to linemen working in a bucket truck. TruGuard is available on nearly every Versalift insulated aerial lift that is built for the electrical power distribution industry.
- Torque Striping – An extra step that we take to ensure the quality of our work. All critical bolts are torque seal marked, allowing the lift operator to perform daily inspections more efficiently, and to receive visual indication when a bolt is loose.
- Dual Pin Retention – Every critical pin on the aerial lift has a redundant pin-set, which is then torque striped. Safety is our priority, and our redundant systems prove that.
- Non-Lube Lift Bearings – Non-lube bearings require little to no maintenance and are designed to last the life of the aerial device.
- No Mandatory Tear-down Inspection or Component Replacement – Versalift aerial lifts are engineered to the highest standard of quality so that they last safely and reliably.
As the industry quality leader in bucket trucks, Versalift also manufacturers aerial devices, digger derricks, cable placers and other specialty equipment for power generation, transmission and distribution, investor-owned utility, telecommunication, light & sign, and tree care industries.
