Default I need this.

Ok I know I have said enough spending this year. But just one more small item please

50' trailer boom, we had to rent it for a project we are doing. Our 40' was a bit short lol.

Dave,

It's OK.

This profession is really just an excuse to buy neat new toys . . . . ahhh . . . I mean TOOLS.


If we weren't tool junkies, we wouldn't be in the trades.

I have backed trailers up many times. This driveway was one of the most difficult ones I have seen. To the right the curbing is about 1 1/2-2 foot high, massive drop, add a tiny one way street, a telephone pole in the right spot (just perfect enough I can make the cut), A smaller curb drop to the left and a metal fence. I can't leave it in the drive way overnight, it also belongs to a neighbor.

Tomorrow I am tossing a set of mechanic ramp in my truck, maybe this will make it easier to back over the curb and not have to make a 40 point turn lol.

I did not damage any tools or small animals while preforming this stunt.

Carly should be behind the trailer as your yellow crew chief

Nice. I have one for the summer. I fly around town like its not even there. Damm thing shakess and rattles but its a rental and I have Geico. Push on. I would look into a bucket truck. They are about the same price but can be a money maker. Tow behinds are great but moving them is a PITA.
