Bucket Truck Manuals
We carry owners manuals for most brands of bucket trucks, digger derricks and cranes. Below is a listing of some of the manuals we carry:
- Reach All
- Elliott Crane
To get you the specific manual for your unit, all that is needed is your:
- Unit model number
- Serial number
The manuals differ by brand, but they all offer chapters on:
- Operations & safety
Operations and safety for your bucket truck or digger derrick are topics that all operators need to be aware of and comply with. Feeling confident about the operation and safety of your unit is important. With that in mind, manuals for example, specify to use only mineral base aircraft type hydraulic oil conforming to Military standard H5606.
Another reason to have a manual for your bucket truck is the maintenance schedule it offers. It details what maintenance is recommended and how often. As an example, most manuals recommend changing the hydraulic oil and breather every 3 years. And after 5 years of operation, the lift cables and leveling cables should be replaced.
We mentioned the valuable troubleshooting guide available in manuals. Even for those who are not mechanically inclined, there is value in being able to diagnose a problem. Periodically we hear of a bucket that is stuck in the air. The manuals offer step-by-step checkpoints to diagnose the issue. In this case, the manual recommends a good place to start is checking the holding valve for malfunction or possibly replacement.
Of course, near and dear to our hearts is the parts section of the bucket truck manual. It offers drawing breakdowns as well as parts lists that include the recommended replacement parts with part numbers, quantities needed, and a description of the part.
