Hi to the group:
As one of the guys that use a "bucket truck" almost every day I would
like to reply to
"Big" Don. If you are up in a bucket and a hose breaks you will not
move as there is
safety valves on the rams. I have had this experiance with an old truck
and I know
for a fact that the ram won't colapse. Of course the safety valves
should be checked
once a week (at work we do them every day) and always the first time you
use a truck.
One of my fav. trucks at work is our 75 foot bucket. It can lift any
wheres up to
1100 lbs with two men in the buckets. At 75 feet it is just like
standing on the ground.
Very stable (I have had loan of this unit for field day and other Ham
I think that the only problems with these units comes from abuse/poor
73 and have fun.
