    New to bidding work with crane rental. Curious about your thoughts....

    As someone said above, get the crane in and out as fast as possible...dont make him sit around and wait for you (between picks, at the end, etc). I can't recall any 4k type job where I had the crane there for a full 8 hours...taking half my money. Most single tree jobs, the crane is leaving by...

    New to bidding work with crane rental. Curious about your thoughts....

    Using a crane typically cuts the job time in half, or more. In the past when I rented a stick crane, the charge to the customer was pretty much the same whether I used the crane or not. With crane the price per hour is higher, but job goes quicker. Without the crane the job is less per hour, but...

    Vermeer Mini skid steer

    Never used a power rotating grapple, so it is hard to compare. I personally love a mini skid and the free floating bmg, and added benefit of the scoops/rake. I have never had a issue where I was thinking a power rotation grapple could do this better...more often I'm like how would a power do this.

    Lettering a K boom

    Either way, I just don't see them staying nice. I use a dry graphite like spray, anywhere I see rub marks...lettering wouldn't work on the sides of my extentions

    How does Coronavirus COVID-19 alter our workflow?

    Umm to make it fair population wise, you have to add Spain, Italy, France, Germany, and the UK numbers together...which would put them on top as to number of cases. Make sure you add up all those countries deaths to...

    How does Coronavirus COVID-19 alter our workflow?

    Your basing this on cases. You base it on deaths, so far we are looking better. With our travel society and type government type I would kinda expect high number of cases. But I would also expect a lower death rate due to our technology, resources and government type.

    How does Coronavirus COVID-19 alter our workflow?

    I feel I am in a unique position, because we don't have a physical store front or office location (home office). On top of that we currently have no employees right now...just my wife and I. So there is really no risk for us to spread the virus to others. We have contacted our client for today...

    Looking for ways to reduce quote time

    Removing or trimming a tree is not like fixing a known problem on a car. Most mechanics know exactly how long it will take to replace a part in a car. Doing a tree is really a estimation on the time it will take, usually based on experience...but every tree is different (even of the same...
