When you show up on a job, you expect to go home at the end of the day. However, if you are in a hurry and don’t adhere to the safety factors of your truck crane bodies, you might end up in the hospital instead of home. In some cases, you could even be killed if a truck crane tips over while you are operating it. Instead of being a statistic, think safety first when you are heading to a job.
Through the years, we have worked on several types of bucket trucks, ranging from 29 feet to over 200 feet of working height. We even put together bucket trucks for off road use. However, the bucket truck is much older than Drake-Scruggs.
When it’s time to choose the right truck service body, you’ll need some specific information and three measurements. Once you have this, you’ll be able to choose from standard service bodies, EC Series service bodies, KSS, line bodies and crane bodies, all made by Knapheide.
When you need to get a tool from your truck or van, do you feel like you’re on a scavenger hunt? Do you have to spend an embarrassing amount of time clearing seats whenever you invite passengers to ride in your vehicle? Have you ever had equipment or tools seem to straight up disappear in the mess that is your cargo area? If you answered yes to any of these questions, it is probably time for some cleaning and organization. A great way to boost productivity and efficiency is to organize your truck or van with tool boxes and storage systems designed especially for work vehicles.
There is no denying it, summer is here. For those of us who do a lot of outdoor work, that means it’s busy season. It is time to treat your truck like another employee and give it the tools it needs to perform.
