Find a Dealer

The Urban Forestry Unit is the only Class 5 bucket truck with a chipper box in the tree care industry with a reach of 50 feet and it's now available with a lightweight aluminum chipper box.

Those in the tree care industry already love the Urban Forestry Unit because of its size and weight and now it’s getting even lighter. 

“The lighter weight means less damage to yards and property making this an ideal solution for those in the urban forestry industry,” said Loren Top, Dur-A-Lift's national sales manager.
