If it's a truck with a bucket on it, you'd keep the bucket raised when parked for marketing/visibility. If it's a boom lift (cherry picker), it's probably to eliminate wasted space and keep people from messing with it.

Is a boom truck the same thing as a bucket truck?

Boom trucks are the same as bucket trucks. They both have a long shaft that extends into the air with a bucket attached. These are common utility vehicles.

Uses for Bucket Trucks?

Bucket trucks can be seen all over the highways, byways, and side streets of the great United States. However, many people do not know what these trucks are used to do. What are the common uses for these trucks? What are the uncommon uses for these trucks? What are the humorous tasks that people use these trucks to accomplish?The number one job that people use these bucket trucks to do is performing maintenance upon telecommunications lines and electrical utility equipment. This is the most obvious things that people can use these trucks and their cherry pickers to accomplish. Specially insulated bucket trucks are used to do these Jo s and keep the workers safe from violent electrocutions.Another use for these bucket trucks is to perform window washings. Some of these booms can reach up to sixty feet into the air. This is high enough to wash the exterior windows on office buildings that are up to five stories in height. Window washers are able to stay safe and reach things that are too high to be reached by using simple ladders.These bucket trucks are even used to pick fruit, hence the term cherry picker that some people use to describe the vehicles. Mostly, these bucket trucks are used to pick apples in orchards.Animal rescue is another task that these bucket trucks are commonly used to achieve. One such case of using a bucket truck to save wildlife occurred when a gull became entangled in a fishing wire and got caught on a fifty foot tree. The bucket truck was the only way to save this poor soul.Bucket trucks are also used to hang decorations for city Christmas festivities. Many larger cities like to have gigantic Christmas trees in the town square. There would be no way that they could set up these giants without the tremendous aid provided by these helpful vehicles. Likewise, other people use these bucket trucks to trim trees after large thunder and ice storms. These hanging branches that are left by bad weather conditions can be quite dangerous to people and buildings alike.These bucket trucks are godsends for so many reasons. Without bucket trucks, people would be risking their lives to wash windows and perform other jobs.

What is difference of sanitation system and 3 bucket system?

The three buckets system is:Use 3 buckets large enough to immerse the largest plates and utensils. All 3 buckets must contain visually clear water. If the river is muddy, allow dishwater to settle and remove sediment before use. The use of alum is recommended for settling (2 tablespoons per 5 gallons for dishwater). Decant the clear water. Heat 2 buckets of water to near boiling.Add detergent to 1 heated bucket of water, leaving the second bucket of hot water clear for rinsing. The third bucket of water (~75 F to 120 F) should contain a chlorine concentration of 50-100 ppm for sanitizing.Wash dishes and utensils in the first bucket of hot, soapy water to remove grease and food particles. Water temperature should be 120 F to 140 F.Dip rinse in the second bucket of hot rinse water.Immerse articles in the third bucket of chlorine solution for 60 seconds. The effectiveness of chlorine for disinfecting is directly related to time of exposure. Be sure to allow time for the chlorine to sanitize.Place dishes on a rack for air drying. Store the articles in a clean, dry location to be ready for the next meal. If dishes did not air dry before being packed or dishes become contaminated by river water or other sources, use a sanitizing solution on the dishes before using.

How do you separate 5-gallon buckets that are stuck together?

If it is caused by wet, usually water then you need to completely submerge them in water to get them apart because this cancels the vaccum effect that binds them if put inside of one another while wet. To add to the previous answer. Submerge the buckets three quarters of the way up the outside in hot water. Put hot water inside the top bucket. Air expands when it is heated and the buckets should pop apart easily after being warmed as the air trapped in the gaps between them expands. The water should not be boiling as this may cause the plastic to warp.

Will Bowls of hot water in bedroom remove dust?

Bowls of hot or cold water set in rooms will not remove dust or particles from the air or from surfaces of furniture.However, in cold climates and in homes with dry heat (coal, gas, or electric furnaces without humifier), any standing water will increase humidity and decrease static. Often, the dust in a home becomes "charged" in dry heat, making dust particles float and drift through the air.Safety-wise, if you use buckets of water to humidify a house, you should use a metal galvanized bucket. Place each bucket on or very near the register. You should add a brick to the bottom, for stability.Health-wise, you must include 1 CAP full of floral bleach to every bucket of water used to humidify. The bleach prevents mold from growing in standing water and also deters pets from drinking from the water. In a 5 to 7 room house, you may need 1 to 3 buckets - one on each register. In a 5-7 room house with the heat set at 65 degrees, you should expect to have 1-inch evaporation every 1 to 2 days. When you re-fill the water, again put 1 CAP full of floral bleach per 1 full bucket of water, and split the refill among all the buckets you have in use.*IMPORTANT* -- If you have babies or toddlers living in or visiting the home, do NOT use buckets of water for humidification! Young children and babies can drown in as little as ONE INCH of water. Babies and toddlers cannot right themselves after a fall, so they can go head-first into a bucket **of any size** and drown.Some positives of using galvanized buckets to add moisture to the air:Humidity decreases electrical static.Humidity increases the feeling of warmth, so the thermostat can be set 1 to 2 degrees lower but still feel warm enough.Humidity combats dry air, thereby reducing sore throats after sleeping in dry heat.Using galvanized buckets with water is a cheap fix to breathing dry heat.Some negatives of using galvanized buckets to add moisture to the air:Buckets of water pose a safety hazard to babies and toddlers -- do NOT use around small children!Buckets can tip over if not aqequately weighted down from the inside (i.e. a brick or large stone on the bottom of each bucket).Maintenance requires re-filling the evaporated water every 1 to 2 days.Carrying a re-fill bucket from room to room can be hard on the back.Iif you don't put bleach in the water, it can grow mold.Clean-up in the Spring requires allowing the bucket's water to evaporate until you can carry the bucket to the bathroom; bricks or stones must be removed onto plastic before lifting the bucket; in hard water, you may need to use a product like CLR to remove mineral build-up on the bucket; all buckets must be washed and dried thoroughly to prevent rusting.You must carefully inspect each bucket for signs of rust before re-using.The galvanized buckets should only be used for humidifying--- don't use it as a scrub bucket during the summer because chemical residue will then be in the bucket (not nice to breathe).Again, please do NOT use a bucket humidying system if there are babies or young children in the house. Buy a commercial humidifier and run per your doctor's and the manufacturer's guidelines.
