I paid 500 for the weekend with delivery and pick up. They weigh 38,000 pounds 
ready to go. If you do a lttle math with a load linit of 500 pounds and a boom 
of 125 feet you can figure how much it needs to weigh to prevent a tip over. I 
wore and would tell anyone who goes that high in a bucket that a safty harness 
with a fall arrester is maditory. They do bounce and it FEELS better to know 
you can't fall to your death. I was told and believe a new one is in 475K 
range. If you calculate that need t rent that thing a LOT to make any money. 
The ability to work all day and go up and down towers to do your work or new 
install is worth the money to me. My legs were still fresh after all the work. 
If they don't pick it up early I may try to do some more unless it is snowing 
like they say it will.
