Industry-first: Full-Length Compact Options
for Telescopic and Take-Apart Sticks
Utility Solutions Inc introduces two new telescopic hot sticks
to provide more options for line crews.

  • New Compact Telescopic stick offers full 30’ extended length that collapses to 49”
  • Compact Stick offers 20% reduction in collapsed length over standard options, small enough to fit inside standard truck cab 
  • New Take-Apart Bucket Sticks available - 8’, 10’, and 12’
February 4, 2021 - Hickory, NC - Utility Solutions, Inc. introduced two new hot sticks during their monthly Live Event held last week. The release included an industry-first Compact 30’ BLUE STRIPE® Telescopic Stick as well as new bucket stick sizes available for the Take-Apart Telescopic line. 

“We increased the diameter of the stick to help reduce the overall collapsed length,” said Jon Spencer, Engineer, and Product Manager, on the new Compact Telescopic Stick. “This is basically a 30’ stick, but it collapses down 14-16” shorter than a typical 30’ stick.”

The collapsed length of the Compact Telescopic stick is only 49”, compared to the 62” of a standard stick. This gives lineworkers more options to get a stick to and from the job site. 

According to Utility Solutions, the new Bucket size options for the BLUE STRIPE® Take-Apart line include an 8’, 10’, and 12’ stick. 

“These have been requested by crews since we launched the Take-Apart line a few years ago. The stick will operate the same way,” said Roger May, Director of Sales, on the new Take-Apart Bucket Sticks. “Just line up the Blue Stripe and remove the sections from the base of the stick. This is fantastic for cleaning and maintenance.” 

Both new sticks are available now, for more information visit online at
