Bucket trucks have almost all the same features as a boom truck. There are all different kinds of these trucks available that will enable a person to be carried up in the air. Fire departments are one example of the need for bucket trucks. Their bucket trucks are used to get the firemen up to the top of a burning building quickly so they can put out fires and help those who are trapped in a burning building to get out safely. These kinds of trucks need a stable base to help keep it stable when the bucket is extended. The fire truck is a perfect example.
Other such trucks can be used for other applications as well. These kinds of heavy duty trucks with bucket extensions are often use in by tree trimming operations to lift he person up in the air so they can begin cutting down diseased trees or just trees that need to be removed for one reason or another. The trucks with bucket extensions are also used by electricians and those who work on the phone lines and power lines. The buckets are often also also used by those who do inspections on such work being done. The inspectors can be quickly lifted up to where the work they are inspecting was done. There is no longer any need to climb power poles anymore because of such trucks. Bucket trucks make work being done high up in the air a lot more easier and safer to do.
