    The HHR is catching on like August wildfire in Nevada. Starts with a spark, but there's no stopping it.

    Welcome to the site, I'm not sure what a bucket trucks is. I'm guessing it's a truck with a bucket on it.

    I'm guessing it's like a lineman's truck. The kind used for repairing telephone, cable, and power lines.

    Our units range from 75 to 150 feet, to the cable guys it the "Nose Bleed section".

    These are the units you see under the tall and high voltage transmission lines mostly in the country. Our units allow linemen to work "Live Line" up to 765kvAC, thats 765,000 volts..

    Have to introduce my new Family member that arrives June 30.
    Pick up my new 2009 Sillverado, 2wd, Reg Cab, long box, 5.3 Auto with trailering package.
    It replaced my s-10 as a back-up driver and for pulling my trailer or hauling my ATV.

    Could not pass up this deal of close to 6,000.00 off invoice.
