Certification is not required for tree work unless your specific state demands licensure.
Tcia has a legal defense fund for members osha sites for doing tree work.
Ok I'm confused! Are u talking about certifying the crane it's self? Or us operators having a certificate to be legally trained to operate the booms?
Operators. The crane itself is supposed to have an annual inspection and any decent insurance wants proof of it. It is an osha inspection
Hey there islandedge sorry i have been busy with other stuff , Great to see you with a Kboom you will change the way you do tree work! I do have a front stabilizer on the bumper and that helped a lot by taking stress off of my front axle ( which is a 20,000 lb rating) giving me more stability, you should do the dump or hook lift that also will help keep your truck stabile. My truck is 48,000 lb empty , the dump box is 13 ft long, 7ft 10in inside . You can add the switch over valves and share the oil from your fly jib functions ( do you have 360 rotation?) hose reels are faster and easier to install i just don't like the hose hanging out there .
The only wall you my run into is that your remote does not support the extra functions . I will be on treebuzz more and hopefully i can help you with other questions. Rick
i have 2 extra paddles in my remote
Wade, do you not chip anymore? Btw awsome setup..
Yes landscape maintenance jobs.
New Copma 450.6J4 w/ a Mecanil SG280 grapplesaw
That's pretty cool
Can you attach the load chart for main and fly? Also whats the pull out rated for?
Hey I'm so excited my truck is coming along. Palfleet is building it and is looking good.
I like the dump box. How many ft? How much weight did it add? I need an extra 3-4k lbs on the rear in order for effer to reprogram full work capability off the front as well. If you don't mind sharing the price on the dump setup through pm
I've been starting to carry more wood on the back then i was planning on.. It would be awesome at the end the day to be able to just dump it!
plus when your loaded with bigger wood the commercial cops will give you a ticket for open load!
That's a nice looking truck. What size boom did you get
If your talking to me it's a pk50002
