What is a Digger Derrick?

A Digger Derrick is a specialized machine crucial for utility operations, featuring an auger and robust lifting capacity. Widely employed in new construction and maintenance, these machines play a pivotal role in setting utility poles for telecommunications, electrical transmission, and distribution. Additionally, they handle tasks such as setting transformers and providing linemen with essential aerial access.

Why Choose Waco Boom for Digger Derrick Insulated Booms?
