Bucket Trucks – Electrical Utility
Versalift in the Electric Utility Industry
Bucket trucks play a crucial role in the Electric Utility Industry. They can be found in big cities and small towns and are some of the most important tools for making sure that linemen and technicians can do their jobs effectively and efficiently. From government service providers to private companies, bucket trucks play a key role in making sure that families and businesses get power day and night. Versalift invented the Articulated Telescopic Bucket Truck more than 30 years ago, and has partnered with some of the world’s largest and most effective utilities companies ever since.
With a family of distribution, parts and service centers, Versalift is dedicated to helping Utility Companies keep their bucket trucks on the road, Versalift has built a strong reputation for service and quality.
Versalift supports hundreds of municipal and co-op utility fleets around the world. In the electrical utility industry, it is absolutely essential that you are confident in your equipment, especially when you know you are going to be facing ongoing sizeable tasks at varying heights. Whether you’re managing an established fleet, building your company or extending your service capabilities, having a highly safe and reliable fleet of aerial lifts is essential to your success.
The Versalift Fleet of Bucket Trucks and Digger Derricks for Utility.
Versalift bucket trucks come in working heights from 29’ to 219’ and can be customized with buckets that are designed for as many as five technicians. ElectroGuard includes a 42” insulation gap which prevents electrical current from arcing from the boom to the pedestal. This is more than double the insulation gap length of our competitors and comes standard. While every Versalift Truck comes with ElectroGuard to protect the men on the ground from electrocution, all of our Bucket Trucks can also be customized with TruGuard, our patented upper control isolation system. The optional TruGuard™ Safety System initially launched in 2015, and then rebuilt and refined in 2016, ensures that your truck is doing everything it can do to make sure you get home safely. Truguard’’s™ 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, every bucket truck is designed to exceed the dielectric testing of ANSI and OSHA, and we work directly with your fleet management team to design custom protection solutions that provide the tools that they want in the positions and configurations to which they 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.
- ElectroGuard – Provides a 42” dielectric gap in the Versalift boom, which is more than double the gap of our competitors. Electroguard comes standard in all Versalift products
- TruGuard – Versalift’s proprietary upper control isolating system provides another level of protection to linemen working in an aerial lift from phase-to-phase and phase-to-ground electrical contact. TruGuard comes standard on many Versalift bucket trucks.
- Torque Striping – An extra step that we take to ensure the quality of our work. All bolts are torque seal marked, allowing the lift operator to save time in pre-check prior to operation.
- Dual Pin Retention – Every critical pin on the bucket truck and lift assembly has a redundant pin-set, which is then torque striped. Safety is our priority, and our redundant systems prove that.
- Non-Lube Lift Bearings – Designed to last the life of the truck.
- No Recommended Parts Replacement – engineered to the highest standard of quality so that they last safely and reliably.
