As an electrical contractor I have owned dozens of bucket trucks. Many were built in our shops from cab& chassis and used hydraulic units from utility company’s trucks. Here I have replicated a rear mounted unit on a military type C&C. This would be more for off road/ power-line use. Detailed engine and drive-line. 29”L 8.5H 7.5”W 100% Red Cedar. Sand & Seal and 3 sprayed coats Polyurethane. No plans, nails,screws.

Very Nice work.
I have posted Toys that I built years ago. I had to compensate for safety rather than detail !
