A bucket truck liner is placed inside the bucket, the key difference is that the liner provides insulation from electricity. Our liners last longer and weigh less due to a superior plastic grade not found in most competitors’ liners. The liners offered by Utility Equipment Parts are made of polyethylene plastic and weigh on average 12% less than competitors’ liners, adding to the truck’s lift capacity.
When electrocution is the main hazard a utility man faces, a bucket liner becomes essential. Our liners insert into aerial lift buckets providing greater electrical insulation for the worker and improved bucket protection. In addition, polyethylene plastic is highly resistant to impact damage. Most importantly, the bucket liner still provides electrical protection should the liner sustain impact damage from tree limbs and other objects. We also offer 2 Safe Electrical Insulating Bucket Liners for those who need the protection.
Polyethylene maintains resistance in sub-zero temperatures as low as -130 F. If the utility man must work through a harsh winter, he’ll get a measure of comfort knowing he’s still protected.
If you need help you determining what size of bucket liner you need, please see the UEP-Guys-Cheatsheet-Liner-replacement-measurement.
For your convenience, most bucket liner brands and sizes are in stock and can ship same day or next day.
Top Quality Assurance
You can be assured of our bucket liner quality. The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standard A92.2 requires a bucket liner be tested and certified before it is approved for use. Each liner is also required to be retested annually to ensure quality. Our liners are tested and certified at 50kv or 70kv AC. When you receive your bucket liner, you can be assured the liner is proven and capable of protecting you.

UEP Bucket Truck Guards are made of fiberglass, and are not easily broken like guards made of plastic materials used by some OEMs. Our guards cost less than those from your OEM.
Utility Equipment Parts offers Bucket Covers that keep the weather elements out, and they come in a variety of colors and sizes. UEP’s soft bucket covers are made of heavy-duty vinyl-coated nylon. Heavy-weight vinyl-coated nylon is waterproof, oil and gas resistant, tear resistant, and designed to reduce wind whip.
Also, UEP offers bucket covers with foam between two layers of heavy-weight vinyl that has been heat-sealed. The foam-filled bucket covers create a dome-like effect over the bucket to allow maximum water run-off. Single-man and two-man bucket covers are available with elastic shock cords to ensure they are compatible with any kind of bucket. We offer a wide selection of bucket covers, giving you plenty of options to choose from.
Vinyl Bucket Covers
- Oil & Gas resistant
- Tear resistant
- Resists wind-whip
- Elastic shock cord sewn in the hem
- 4 foot lanyard included to secure the cover
Covers use different means to allow for maximum water run-off. The black vinyl cover with pocket for wood slat features a pocket for a 1” x 4″ thick piece of wood support to boost height in the middle of the cover so water may run off the sides.
We also sell heavy duty fiberglass bucket covers that are mounted using riveted straps with buckles, and solid polyurethane covers, such as the Tru-Fit Bucket Cover, fitting most of the major brands, like Hi-Ranger, Holan, Altec and Terex Telelect bucket trucks. These covers are a perfect permanent fit for compatible buckets, including both single man and two man buckets. Solid bucket covers provide durablity since they run no risk of shrinking, sagging or tearing.
