First thing to know about bucket truck hydraulics is they use a special non-conductive hose. Not found on every street corner. Had a guy from the local utility come to my parts counter one day and asked me to make a hose for the bucket truck he was driving. I told him to go call his supervisor and ask if he really wanted me to make a hose for him from Weatherhead H425 hose. He didn't come back in.
I've been told the hydraulic fluid has to be no conductive as well.

Yep, thermoplastic non conductive hose only if it’s going thru the boom. If its on the lower controls it’s ok to use wire hose but most bucket trucks are hosed with the same material to make it easy to rehose.
