work in the major cities and the ladder gets traded in for a frieght elevator with a stairs walk up.. that is why you travel lite and hit the passenger ones to get into the spaces for breakdowns.this pix a rare drive the van up to the roof and be in the middle of 2500 tons of TRANE rooftops..left the truck running all the time during a summer breakdown
Own the company and you can have your employees get on the roofs for you.

For HVACR Professionals:
a 5 gallon bucket is tool bag of choice working on the roofs.the easiest i did service on were the KMART stores.all had walk up stairs and just a sea of units all the same brands per store...but there had to be that one store with the ladder mounted 4" off the cinder block wall with a 40' climb up and over the hatch opening...that is a "tools in the pocket" breakdown
Best answer prize!

Me too why would you want to get off the roof? Nobody else to bother you all the sunshine you can stand. Of course I have a tool shed on my roof so I don't drag my stuff up and down everyday either...

Just get out of the bussiness if roofs are too tough for you.
Learned that the "hard" way.. Since then, I'd find something to tie the end of the rope off to, on the roof.

Even Chillers are still often cooled by cooling towers... which are frequently up on the roof. The sensors for contrals are mounted locally... usually in a airhandler, which, darn it... is on the stinking roof.

Yes.. I know I know it needs some reprogramming but the Tracer Summit guys.
...and you will always, ALWAYS, ALWAYS hafta climb back down at least one time to get one more tool...

I don't know, but we've got one guy that apparently has it figured out. Any time he has to do something involving a roof, another tech gets sent to help. I HATE extension ladders, but I suck it up and get the job done.

Done that many times. Had a few ladders blow over on me.
