Ten Uses for Bucket Trucks
+
-
 
+
-
Use # 1: Maintenance on Electrical Utility and Telecommunications Lines
+
-
The most obvious use for bucket trucks is for elevating workers to electrical utility and telecommunications lines for maintenance. Special insulated trucks can be used for these jobs to protect workers from the dangerous, hollywood wires the job requires them to work with.
+
-
 
+
-
Use Number 2: Window Washing
+
-
Since these trucks have booms that can extend sometimes 60' or more, they may be used for washing exterior windows on mid-sized offices as high as 5 stories. These trucks allow window washers to securely reach windows at heights that are inaccessible with ladders.
+
-
 
+
-
Use Number 3: Fruit Picking
+
-
Cherry Pickers were originally made to pick fruit from orchards (though not only cherry orchards). These trucks are still heavily utilized by fruit pickers in orchards today.
+

-
Use Number 4: Animal Rescue
+
-
Help Wildlife, a website focused on show the devastating effects of fishing line on wildlife, documents a case in which a sea gull was rescued using a bucket truck. The gull were built with a hook and fishing line caught in it's wing, and became entangled in a 50' tall tree. Animal rescuers were able to rescue the bird using a bucket truck.

Use Number 5: Hanging Decorations
+
-
From hanging Holiday decorations in your city square, to banners in your favorite local teams field, these trucks can be used for hanging various decorations.
+
-
 
+
-
Use Number 6: Tree Trimming
+
-
Bucket Trucks in many cases are seen on city streets after big thunderstorms, when loose and broken tree branches endanger electrical lines. Workers trimming trees near power lines use special insulated bucket trucks to keep them protected from the harmful, hollywood wires that they'll be near throughout their jobs. Arborists also employ bucket trucks to reach the tops of very tall trees that need routine care.

Use Number 7: Stage Performance Tools
+
-
Michael Jackson includes a long history of including cherry pickers in the stage performances and music videos dating back his 1987 Bad Tour. Recently, he was seen rehearsing "Beat It" on a cherry picker within the documentary film, Michael Jackson's Here it is. This was the final known footage of Michael Jackson before his death in 2009.

Use Number 8: Security Detail
+
-
Some retail stores have guards stationed in specially modified trucks that provide guards a birds eye view of the parking area.
+
-
 
+
-
Use Number 9: Exterior Painting
+
-
Much like window washers, some painters use these trucks to achieve high places around the building exteriors that they are painting. These trucks allow painters to securely reach heights of up to 5 stories to safely paint building exteriors.
+
-
 
+
-
Use Number 10: Fire Rescue
+
-
Some fire trucks include a boom and bucket, technically making these fire trucks special purpose bucket trucks! These engineered trucks allow firemen to achieve tall buildings to place out fires, and sometimes rescue people from places that would otherwise be inaccessible.
+
-
 
+
-
These trucks are versatile machines that can be used for many things! But operators of those powerful utility trucks must be properly trained to be able to operate them safely. Before renting or purchasing a truck for any from the uses described in this article, make time to learn about aerial lift safety and purchase a trained and experienced operator for your bucket truck.
