What size crane are you thinking?
There is tons of frame work that needs to be done for a medium to large crane mounting, and then the hooklift mounted on top of that (or integrated into it).
Here is my hooklift crane build...
I have been probably doing this for at least 10 years for estimates, and I love it. HP mobile printers have been my go to printer (battery powered and Bluetooth). At the estimate appointment I just type it up on my phone in QuickBooks mobile, and then send it to the printer via PrinterShare...
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...
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...
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.
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...
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.
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...
Below is a link to the Governor’s Administration has deemed essential/non-essential:
Gov. Tom Wolf has ordered all non-life-sustaining businesses in Pennsylvania to close their physical locations to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Total Confirmed Cases
Thankful that We don't have a store or...
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...
Just spreading the word to hopefully get them some help.
