Bucket Trucks for Electric Power Distribution

Versalift insulated bucket trucks, digger derricks, aerial lifts and cable placers create the best value for electric power distribution network management.

Bucket Trucks in the Electric 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 a leading innovator in the development of insulated aerial lifts

Growing Need for Cheaper, More Reliable energy

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.

Challenges Facing the Power Distribution Industry

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.

The Versalift Fleet of Insulated Aerial Lifts for Electrical Power Distribution

Versalift designs and builds insulated aerial lifts with material handling options and digger derricks to its customers. These customers include hundreds of electrical power distribution maintenance fleets around the world. Versalift bucket trucks come in a variety of working heights. They 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.
