Hell no, our safety guy would give me unpaid time off if I was caught doing that.

Surprised you can get away with it.

Get a boom truck rated to lift material. They will usually have a jib and cable hoist. Hang the arm from that and use a second boom with a man in it to pull the arm where it's go to go and fasten it to the pole.

We were within weight of the boom without me in the basket. We tried it in a big open area before we took it to the service center. The arm is about 200#'s.

We had two. I was thinking about a skyjacker after seeing it. I didn't think it had the ups I needed.

Man lift, not material handler.

Not lifting slings

Railings not designed for lifting.



At my own house I would do it, no way at work.

Skytrack and a JLG for me. Why charge the customer only one marked up rental when I could charge two. :laughing:
That would be how we would do it.

We have a number of guys with state required hoisting licenses for running telehandlers.
