Introducing Dur-A-Lift’s new Urban Forestry Unit



Compact design. Big Reach.

GEORGE, IOWA — Experience the compact capabilities of Dur-A-Lift’s DTAX design but with an added working height. The Urban Forestry Unit is currently the only Class 5 aerial lift with a chipper box in the tree care industry with a working height of fifty feet.

The Urban Forestry telescopic articulating aerial lift was engineered specifically for the tree care industry. It features a seven cubic yard capacity box that can haul wood chips from the worksite. The chipper box, with hydraulic cylinder lift, allows for easy dumping.

The basket rotates 180 degrees and includes a four axis single hand joystick at the upper control. You can access the basket from ground level so there is no need to store the basket on top of the cab protector until it’s time to move to the next work site.

It is built on a smaller four-wheel drive chassis. With its lighter weight, this aerial lift causes less damage to yards an property allowing workers to get places they may not have been able to get to before. 

“Our customers are looking for every advantage they can get and being able to reach fifty feet from a smaller 4 wheel drive chassis is ideal. They can accomplish a large number of jobs more cost effectively and efficiently, “ said Loren Top, Dur-A-Lift’s national sales manager.

The Urban Forestry Unit would be a great addition to anyone’s fleet in the tree care industry. Call 1-877-4DURALIFT or email for more information.
