Not necessarily, although you do need the appropriate class licence to actually operate it. You can operate anything up to 26,000 lbs. GVWR on a standard Class C licence. Anything above that, you either need a non-CDL Class B or A licence, or a Class A or B CDL, depending on what type of truck it is specifically, and if its use permits it to fall within any of the exceptions for requiring an actual CDL (registered farm vehicle, etc).

You don't need a CDL to operate a vehicle with air brakes if the vehicle doesn't fall within the requirements to mandate a CDL licenced driver to operate it. For example, RVs often have air brakes, as do many of the trucks manufactured for companies like FedEx, UPS, Merita Bread, etc.

Do you need a cdl to operate a bucket truck?

Depends on what the gross vehicle weight rating of the truck itself is. If it's under 26,000 lbs, then no. Single axle trucks can be a bit ambiguous as far as this is concerned. One example would be the Ford F750, which is built to be a 33,000 GVWR vehicle, but is marketed as a 26,000 GVWR vehicle. So long as the weight of that vehicle remains under 26,000 lbs. GVWR, it doesn't require a CDL. Tandem trucks and larger, however, are not so ambiguous - you need a CDL to drive them, no matter what. Unless it is exempt.

What trailors require a cdl?

A trailer of any weight which carries an amount of hazardous materials that requires the display of placards under the FMCSRAny time the combination of power unit and trailer creates a combination rated at over 26,000 lbs. GVWR, and which is not exempt from CDL requirements.CDL requirements are based on the weight ratings of vehicles or combinations of vehicle and trailer. If you attach a trailer rated at 15,000 lbs. to a truck rated at 10,000 lbs, it doesn't require a CDL. If you operate a truck rated at 26,000 lbs., you don't need a CDL. Take that same 15,000 lb. rated trailer off of the 10,000 lb. truck, and put it on the 26,000 lb. rated truck, and you need a Class A CDL to operate that combination.
