    The wife bought it for the Husband tree co owner and he never used it...ever. It's either a great Tool or Investment...either way this thing is awesome. I know it'll last forever... Look at Stephen's.... Where is Nobivy's original?..

    Like you, Fi. Access is everything. Do you have a lot of space to park equipment? I'm starting to have to have to look for a commercial space.... loft/lot/house...to park stuff off the street. The latest truck to park huddled up to mine. All is good. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Thank you, Carl. Great perspective and thoughts. I appreciate it. That cribbing picture 09 put up is amazing. That's in San Francisco... you can tell from the wall on the house and the street and the Biggee company is local... Sheedy is another big co around here... So yeah...set up a spider on that and get silly with a ficus in the rain. Access is paramount here. Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Ah ha.. info.. I've read the best reviews on the nifty lift sd64... also Carl is involved with them... which means something. My old boss Evan bought a teupen i n 2002... it was awesome... loaded on a trailer, thin.great access...etc. we ran into many computer/sensor issues the first few months. We ended up getting rid of it. I've been watching the window guys use them inside buildings. Other jobs...? I like the idea of maybe a smaller one like the one you mentioned....also smaller storage footprint...this won't be parked on the street and may need to put it in a storage bodega place. Are telescoping booms standard? There must be 10 companies making spider lifts... Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk

    Thanks i was going to hit up JP. I agreee... Brian. I saw one over 100'.... ridiculous. But... I want the best of both worlds. And really don't want another truck with a plate that deals with DMV. I saw one drive through. House and now I can't stop thinking about it. Also the lift can go on the small foot paths etc. I've read up on jlg nifty lift cmc teupen and some other one. Deva Sent from my SM-G955U using Tapatalk
