Hear what one of our experts had to say…

“With its smaller footprint and light weight, the DTAX2-45 Urban Forestry Build offers more maneuverability in urban areas as compared to larger trucks. But don’t let its size fool you—this lift can reach up to 50 feet. Also, the new 9’9” aluminum chipper body from Voth Truck Body (with hydraulic cylinder lift for easy dumping) allows for even more payload, giving the user more capacity that can be hauled from the worksite.

The overall weight of a diesel, 4×4, this Urban Forestry truck comes in at just over 15,800 pounds. The basket on the aerial lift rotates 180 degrees, with an option of a four axis single hand joystick at the upper control, allowing the operator precise maneuverability of the aerial in tight areas.”
