My impression is that commercial tower climbers aren't cheap, so what
are the usual climber and helper rates from a tower maintenance
company? What do they require for pre-climb tower inspection,
certification, installed safety gear, etc? How do they get large yagis
onto guyed towers?
Since the boom lift rates go up somewhat exponentially with reach
height, it would be good to know the cost cross-over point.
My 85' rental was about $475 door to door one day. I see a 65' rents
for $350 plus delivery. The local rental yards are cheaper than the big
chains in my experience.
