In Russia, driveway break crane.
That is a true statement!! We have enough dirt driveways around these parts that its not a huge issue. I tend to plywood in on the front lawn and keep the chipper on the driveway if I'm worried about the structural integrity of the driveway.Big cranes crack driveways. I you havent cracked a driveway your crane is too small or you haven't done enough crane work. This thread would be awesome if it actually discussed the preventative measures experienced crane operators learned the hard way.
I would contribute something useful but this thread is broken just like the driveway corner you're about to roll off of
Never worked for me...even in my 20s...No tricks or secrets necessary, and there is no need to pay for those expensive pills that your insurance may, or may not pay for. It's as simple as saddlin' up, and climbing, if the job calls for it. You will be utterly amazed at the increases in both length, and girth! Men will envy you, and woman will want you!
If you think owning a crane business will be any less mentally draining, think again.I'm pushing 50 and feel better after a days climbing vs sitting around but the fact remains climbing doesn't pay the crane mortgage and the companies I work for suck so that is a mental drain on a daily basis.
It's different. First off it'll be mine and second i've owned my own business. What i'm referring to is the fact I hate where I currently work. Every day I go to work with the expectation of getting into a blow out with my boss. Thats the mental drain. I hate where I work.If you think owning a crane business will be any less mentally draining, think again.
