This may be a stupid question but here goes.

Given that most hams are not trained in the use of man lifts, why would it
make sense for a ham to go rent one and use it?  It seems to me that it
would make a lot more sense to hire a crane and get the work done safely.  A
little bit of extra cost is way better than loss of life.  

Is DXing so important that you would risk your life for it?  (Do I sound
like Mommy?)

I read the instruction manual for a Genie S-125 and it mentions moving from 
extended arm which is OK. The problem is he DID NOT check the surface before

hand. I moved the one I rented from about 90 feet. BUT I was driving on hard

packed gravel,if there was a chance of softer earth I would not move it.
