How Do You Remove a Truck Bed With a Cherry Picker?

Removing a truck bed with a cherry picker is a relatively simple process that can be done with minimal effort. While it is possible to remove the bed with just your hands, using a cherry picker makes the job much easier and helps ensure that you don’t damage the bed in the process.

To begin, you will need to make sure that the truck is on level ground and that it has been secured in place using wheel chocks or bricks. Once everything is secure, you will need to locate the cherry picker and attach it to the truck bed. The cherry picker should be connected securely, so make sure all of the nuts and bolts are tightened properly.

Once everything is in place, you will need to lift up the truck bed with the cherry picker until it is clear of any obstructions. Depending on how large your truck bed is, this could take some time so be patient as you work through this process. Once it is clear of any obstructions, you can start removing bolts and screws from underneath the bed while keeping an eye out for any other pieces or components that may need to be removed as well.

Be sure to keep track of which bolts and screws go where so you can reinstall them properly once everything has been removed. After all of the bolts and screws have been taken out, gently lift up on one side of the truck bed until it comes free from its frame. You may need assistance at this point if your truck bed is particularly heavy or awkward in shape.

Once free from its frame, carefully move it away from your vehicle and onto whatever surface it will be resting on for transport or storage purposes. If necessary, use bungee cords or rope to secure it for transport so that nothing falls off during transit.

Removing a truck bed with a cherry picker isn’t difficult but does require some patience and care to ensure everything goes smoothly and safely throughout the process. Taking your time and being aware of all potential hazards during removal will help make sure everything goes according to plan so you can transport or store your truck bed without worry.

In conclusion, removing a truck bed with a cherry picker requires care but isn’t overly difficult if done right. Make sure your vehicle has been secured in place before attempting removal; attach the cherry picker securely; lift up until clear; remove bolts/screws; lift one side carefully until free; move away from vehicle; secure for transport/storage; and take extra care while doing all these steps for safe removal.
