Telescopic Articulated Aerial Bucket Trucks

Versalift logoTelescopic Articulated Bucket Trucks:

 The VST product line has grown from the original 41' working height VST 3600 all the way up to 80' working height (the new VST 7500). These machines are all available with or without material handling. The new hydraulic extending and elevating winch and jib make for an awesome material handling system. Axle loading on these machines is relatively light and the trucks don't have anything protruding beyond the front or rear bumpers. Even the 80' VST 7500 can be built on a single rear axle chassis NON FET. Crews love the extra payload and increased maneuverability. The VST product line has reshaped what a traditional, big bucket truck should look like.


The VST-40 (45’ working height) has been a mainstay of the Versalift product line for nearly two decades. It can easily be mounted on a a class 5 chassis with plenty of payload left over. The boom only requires one set of A frame outriggers for stabilization with no need for counterweight or ballast. There are a number of platform options ranging from a single 24” X 24” to the extra wide 24” X 42” or the aluminum 40” X 64” aluminum platform. The winch and jib feature is offered in three different varieties with up to 1, 000# of material handling capacity.

VST-47 Bucket Truck

The VST-47 is a revolutionary design that incorporates the reach of a large boom with the maneuverability and convenience of a class five chassis. With over 51' of working height and 31' of horizontal reach, this aerial device on a 19,500# chassis is in a class of it's own. The material handling jib has 1,000# capacity with a single-man bucket.

This package can be mounted up with a fiberglass utility body on an F550 chassis with lots of payload left over. You get an aerial device with the reach that usually requires a very large medium duty chassis. This saves a lot of money in both the acquisition cost and the fuel burned throughout its life cycle. Your work crews will probably like driving a smaller truck in lieu of the big CDL chassis.
