FORESTRY BUCKET TRUCK – VERSALIFT VO-260-Rear – HEAVY-DUTY INSULATED OVERCENTER
The Versalift VO-260-Rear bucket truck for forestry applications features a rear-mounted aerial device, located directly over the rear axle. With more than 65’ of working height, and more than 50’ of horizontal reach, this unit has 350 lbs of platform capacity and four A-Frame outriggers.
INCREASED OVERALL REACH AND CAPACITY
Versalift VO-260-Rear units enable more than 65 feet of working height, more than 50 feet of horizontal reach and 350 lbs of platform capacity, allowing technicians higher and further reach. The Upper Boom and Lower Boom both travel Over Center allowing technicians higher and further reach. Improved productivity due to limiting the number of chassis setups to achieve the right positioning. The VO-260-Rear mount option allows crews to work off of the back of the truck, allowing them to get closer to their work and keeping debris from falling onto the cab. Trimmers tend to like the idea of the aerial unit staying busy on the site while the ground crew goes to dump chips. This idea allows the job to continue moving forward. The overall versatility of Versalift VO-260-Rear forestry bucket trucks makes them one of the top choices of the forestry industry, providing users with some of the best reach and capacity available on the market today.
