Van Ladder bucket trucks have seen many changes since being originally developed. Originally conceived for the cable television industry, inventor Eugene Faulstich of Spencer, Iowa, quickly found many other applications for his design. Today’s Van Ladders are still recognizable by the unique boom design but have been completely redesigned for the sign and lighting industry.
As aerial needs have grown and changed, so too the Van Ladder has adapted. Building on the efficiency of the original Van Ladder, Brink’s Manufacturing Company has developed a bucket truck that is now more versatile than ever. With a working height of 45 feet and 31 feet of side reach with no outriggers, Van Ladder has set a new standard for small bucket trucks. The all electric design originally conceived in 1968 is still a cornerstone of all Van Ladder lifts. With improvements to battery and charging technology, the zero emissions system is not just environmentally friendly, it is reliable and economical.
Never content to just be good enough, Brink’s Mfg. continues a relentless pursuit to make every Van Ladder better than the last.
