    I think our plan to get this motor up involves three men and one rope.

    I am the new guy, so I know I will have my hands on the rope.

    Catapult thats funny.... I likes that...

    With boses its all about the dollar. three guys cost as much as one hour of a crane. its all in how you put it to the boss if he sees it will not cost more he is all for it. work smart not hard I think it is?
    If common sense is so common how come so few of us have it!

    I have seen a lot of these over the last 20 years.
    The first ones had a hand crank that attached to your extension ladder. I seen one that you could hook your drill motor to. this one is the first I have seen that looks half way decent.

    The problem or the REASON I never purchased........I always figured by the time I carried all that crap up to the roof and set up I could have already pulled up the damn compressor. I am a big guy so a lot of little guys may love this thing. I have seen techs that can barley handle the extension ladder, let alone pull a compressor onto a roof. If I was going to be pulling crap up on a job for a couple of weeks I maybe would purchase, 1200 bucks is kind of steep.

    I remember when I use to be duct guy and we used a telescopic lift for duct that used nitrogen with a remote. It was the best lift I had ever seen and it folded up and could be stored behind the seat of your truck and also was very lite as I weighted around 130lb back then and it was no problem to carry. I dont remember the model but it was blue and I am pretty sure it was made by Genie.

    Genie does make it. We just bought one to change out water source heat pumps. Makes for an easy change out.

    I finally convinced the company (which I don't work for anymore) to buy a lift from Vermette over a year ago. We used it many times. Very helpful, convenient, and saved time compared to what we were used to...which was a ladder and rope...or worse.

    I'd buy from them again.
