Versalift VST47 on Hino FG1628 Arborist Bucket Truck

The Versalift VST47 on a Hino 500 is a great all-rounder unit whether around town or out in the country side.

It’s the arborists swiss army knife! Agile boom, large chip bin, plenty of tool boxes providing storage for P.P.E, saws and fuel, kit bags and climbing gear. Additionally, it has the option for traffic management and the truck has the ability to tow a chipper which reduces the need for additional vehicles on site.

The VST47 boom offers great up and over functionality

This unit is a favourite arborist build – well suited to tree work around live line and at home working in an urban or rural environment. The robust insulated Versalift VST47 E.W.P is a medium duty articulating telescopic boom, offering point and shoot plus up and over functionality. The platform has full single stick pressure hydraulic controls to bucket and hydraulic tool port at bucket- for hydraulic saws for efficient cutting.

Being mounted on a compact Hino 500 4×2 makes this a very nimble and efficient urban E.W.P truck, with a tight turning circle and quick set up times, enabling great productivity.
