    Nice bucket truck inspection progam they have there. How the hell does it go unchecked like that. There must have been major fatigue marks at base flange.

    Default No way not me

    Sad story.....I'll never get in a bucket truck again, but not because I'm afraid the truck will fall apart. More because I can't stand high places that sway in the wind.
    There is no way to happiness....happiness is the way.:yipi:
