Just what the title says.. If the customer wants it done without a crane do you do it manually or skip it?
We put mats down on every driveway even with the 90 ton have never left a mark or damaged a driveway even unilock with mats over is fine. I don't know why they would object. Since buying my crane every job I look at is can we do it with the crane first bucket truck second, lift third, flop it 4th and manually climbing last which I'd rather not do anymore ! Just have to sell the idea hard to customersJust what the title says.. If the customer wants it done without a crane do you do it manually or skip it?
I'm not necessarily bidding any less, but we can knock out 2-3 jobs that would normally take a day each to do in one with the crane. It's about efficiency and still charging enough and making $!So in other words you guys that own your cranes are biding/doing a job for less than if you'd have to do it the traditional way..
It's not about getting soft, it's about losing a skill set. Do you think it's a good thing that a few guys here said they would not do the job if they had to climb it? I sure don't.Dudes have been getting soft since the invention of the crosscut saw. An axe is the only iron a real tree man should need.
