Are you ready for whatever the season brings?
Is there a peak season for bucket trucks and spider lifts? The answer is: every season is peak season! Bucket trucks can be seen all year long doing work such as tree trimming, light/sign maintenance, and construction. While we ship to clients all around the world, many of our customers are located in the US and there are some seasonal uses worth noting:
- Hurricane season (Begins June 1)
- Fire season
- Hurricane season (Ends Nov. 1)
- Fire season
- Fruit harvest
- Winter ice and snow storm damage
- Holiday decorations
Successful operators know that an important part of their work takes place before they start working on their next job. For safety and efficiency in any season, make sure that your boom truck is ready for anything:
- Perform safety and operational checks before starting work.
- Have basic spare parts and accessories readily available.
- Think about operational needs according to the season and have needed tools and supplies on hand.
Being ready for anything can be as simple as having:
- a manual to diagnose problems and perform simple repairs
- spare winch ropes or tubing
- extra food and water in case you get stuck longer on a job than planned
- spare gloves, hard hats, and clothing
- record books to track when maintenance tasks were performed and due next
- staff conduct visual checks for leaking fluids and damage
- easy ways to report functional issues
- bucket truck self-rescue kit
