    Boiler work.

    I'd rather climb a ladder than stairs. My knees are messed up and recently my left knee started making a clicking noise. Doesn't happen on ladders only stairs.

    i don't do extension ladders as a general rule. If they don't have a roof hatch or some other sort of roof access then they shouldn't have put the equipment up there.

    About half the sites I went to don't have a roof hatch. In other cases it's more convenient to just put up the ladder than to walk through a secure site, be hassled by their rentacops and have to wear a hardhat and safety glasses just to do a PM call.

    I only like a hatch if I'm doing diagnostics. If i gotta lug stuff up for a compressor change or a leak check/repair id rather line stuff up near the ladder, hook & rope it up. Tall roof where it's not so simple I'm quoting 2 men. I think anything on a mall where there is one access & your not allowed to line up a ladder should be 2 men anyway. But things aren't peaches & cream at all times

    I just think it's awsome with what firefighters do with extension ladders , bless them for the good that they do.

    And I'm with the majority , F an extension ladder , or a BS roof hatch etc. My days of proving how much I want it are done. If I find an RTU with issues it's time to call for a crane and get that dog outta there. I refuse to hump all of the tools in my van to the roof to save someone a few bucks.

    The unit is down , the unit has a serious issue , get it out of here today. I've been the hero , I've saved the day for many folks , you know what it has gotten me , not a damned thing. Yes , all of my bones pop when moved , like a bowl of rice crispies in the mornings. A few crane lifts might have prevented this.
