I know folks ride bucket trucks all day, everyday, and come home at night
unscathed.  However, in that grand spectrum of hazards and risk-taking, a
bucket truck seems, conceptually, to rank right up there with climbing a
crankup tower, with the tower extended.  Except in addition to collapsing
(if the right hose fails), it can also tip over easily...?

This list has posted many horror stories concerning crankups, let's hear
it from the  bucket truck jockeys....
