Had one back in '75. Just took her straight out to the side and jumped up and down in the bucket to see if I could tip over the truck.Just curious, is there a lot of hassles with owning a bucket truck, such as safety inspections, maintenance, etc..? Been thinking about purchasing a used one.
That may be ,but not near as fast as an extension ladder.
That's not a issue anymore , they have load checks on the hyd cylinders , you have to apply pressure in one direction to make the cylinder go the other , broken hose will have no effect providing the system hasn't been molestedIf a hose breaks, the bucket comes down really fast. At least that is what my father-in-law said (he was in the bucket at the time).
