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. :rolleyes:

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.

Congratulations on your new truck, it sounds like a real nice truck especially with the long bed. Well a guy a couple of houses down from us works for Ohio Edison, and he gets to drive an International bucket truck. He must have a lot of years there, because he has a really tricked out truck! He makes good money too, you should see his house it belongs on Better Homes and Gardens. :happy:

My new Family member that replaces my S-10 as a backup.
But does this make me a Fleet Manager now with A 1994 S-10, a 2006 Chevy HHR and the Silverado?
But it does give me one more toy. Honda Forman, Kubota Tractor 20' Pontoon and many more.
