Bucket trucks for the electrical transmission industry – Versalift

The Power Transmission Industry

The Power Transmission Industry relies heavily upon bucket trucks to maintain the flow of power between electrical power plants and substations.  Because the majority of electrical power is moved within the transmission network through towers that carry it far overhead, the bucket trucks that are used to service it must be extremely stable and able to reach hundreds of feet into the air. Transmission bucket trucks are perhaps the most important tools for making sure that transmission linemen can safely do their jobs effectively and efficiently. More than 30 years ago, Versalift invented the Articulated Telescopic Bucket Truck, and it has continued to deliver the safest, most reliable and highest quality bucket trucks to its customers who are responsible for managing and maintaining the bulk movement of electricity that flows through the power grid.

With a family of distribution, parts and service centers, Versalift is dedicated to support our customers in the electrical power transmission industry in keeping their aerial lift-equipped trucks on the road. Versalift has worked hard to earn its strong reputation among its customers for service and quality.

Versalift supports electrical power transmission maintenance fleets all around the world. Whenever you are working with electricity, it is fundamentally important that you are confident in your equipment, and this is doubly true when you aren’t sure what your tasks will be and at what heights your linemen will need to be working. In the case of power transmission, due to tremendous heights and very high voltage, confidence is more critical than ever,  This is why if you are responsible for maintaining electrical power transmission towers, Versalift’s high-quality, safe and reliable catalog of transmission bucket trucks is an important piece of your strategy.

Versalift transmission bucket trucks come in working heights that go all the way to 219’, and they can be customized in thousands of ways. One feature that comes standard on every Versalift bucket truck is ElectroGuard, which includes a 42” insulation gap that prevents electrical current from arcing from the boom to the pedestal. This is more than double the insulation gap length of our competitors, and it provides an example of how lineman safety is the most important component of our work.  All Versalift Trucks come with ElectroGuard to protect those men on the ground from being burned or electrocuted. All of our Transmission bucket trucks also come with TruGuard, our patented upper control isolation system.  TruGuard™ Safety System was initially launched in 2015, and then rebuilt and refined in 2016, ensuring that your transmission bucket truck is doing everything possible to make sure your linemen and technicians get home safely. Truguard™ patented technology allows hydraulic hoses to feed fluid through an insulation gap, giving you access to all controls and tool ports in the bucket itself while remaining dielectrically secure.  At Versalift, all of our products are designed to exceed the dielectric testing of ANSI and OSHA. We work directly with you to design custom solutions that provide the tools and configurations to which you and your team are accustomed.

Unique Versalift Features

The culture of innovation and quality at Versalift powers the work we do. Several advancements that Versalift has made are available on every one of our bucket trucks. One feature on every bucket truck we make is ElectroGuard, a feature that provides a 42” dielectric gap in the Versalift boom, which is more than double the gap of our competitors. TruGuard™, on the other hand, is Versalift’s proprietary upper control isolating system, and it provides another level of protection to linemen working in an aerial lift from phase-to-phase electrical contact. TruGuard comes standard on many Versalift bucket trucks, but is a customization on others. For more information. We pay attention to detail, down to every last bolt and pin. For example, torque striping is an extra step that we take to ensure the quality of our work, and to improve the efficiency of technicians. All critical bolts are torque seal marked, which allows the lift operator to be more efficient, and to confirm, through visual indication, that a bolt or pin is securely in place.
