new 10' work platform

Recommended Posts

Got our first chance today to work our new 10' auto-leveling, rotating work platform by ReachAll Platforms. This thing is Sweeeet! Having the ability to rotate the platform really makes a difference. This attaches to our 23.5 ton crane. We had a 6' wide basket that did not rotate and was gravity leveled. Seems you were always working out of the corner of the basket, never in quite the right position. My guys and I agree that this is going to be a real time saver and save us rental fees for hi-rises that we no longer have to take to the ground to reface. Smooth operation and well built. Will be a lot more efficient when I don't have to remove the basket to get it into my shop. When stowed it extends 20" farther off the rear of the truck than the old basket, so I have to build a bump out on the back wall to accommodate the platform ( I new this going in). I've attached a few photos showing the platform.

Eugene,

Would you mind saying what the ballpark pricing was for that? Did you have to send the truck to them for fittment ?

Definately a sweet looking basket setup.

Thanks

Richard

Richard I bought a demo model so I got a really great deal. He makes a 5' and 10' model, and depending on the options the cost is between $12,000 & $20,000. I sent Tim my measurements for my boom and he made it to fit. He delivered it to me (it fit perfectly), set it up and trained us on it's use. It is not cheap, but you have to spend money to make money. We do more & more hi-rise work everyday, and it won't take long save in crane fees what I paid for it. I can see it making us much more productive, especially on hi-rise work and big channel letter jobs. Has to be faster to put up patterns, 2 guys can drill at one time, mount, put on faces, etc. I didn't mention in my first post that I also have radio remotes. With both of these options the crane is just like working out of a big bucket truck.

Eugene,

Thanks for the quick reply. I am having to make a decision here soon to either upgrade my old skyhoist or do something like this with my JLG. The JLG has remotes but I have never used them since I did mostly lifting with the truck. 20K is still cheaper than buying a whole new rig. I may have to give him a shout. Would be really nice if he offers a jib winch as well to compliment the forks.

Merry Christmas

Richard

    • Paul;   Your statement   " When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? "   You are exactly on point. How the hell do I know for sure when you have been paid? This comes after being so stupid that I would agree to be paid when paid in the first place.   I just received a query from "FacilitySource" to become a contractor. They have just been consumed by CBRE (Coldwell Banker Richard Ellis), a large player in the real estate/ real estate management area. I received a solicitation sheet from them and I won't even insult the intelligence of those on this venue by posting it.   The response section was very definite but the payment portion was somewhere out in the Cosmos. You could  be  paid only if they got paid and then pay you at some mysterious date in the future. They had a list of discounts that they wanted to take under circumstances that were totally unverifiable. You also had to sign away all rights as a contractor while shielding them from everything. Incredible............   But if I were to sign this nonsense, I would be getting exactly what I deserve.   Just for the record, they intimated that they wanted me to provide service to Lowe's, along with some other familiar major accounts in my area.   I politely refused the offer but thought to myself that if a person made me an offer like this to my face I would have dispensed justice with a broken car antenna right on the spot.   Peace out!  
    • Here is a " National " Maintenance Co that sent me a request to work for them. I read their contract and it included payment statements stating they will only pay their contractors if they get paid by their customers. Also included was a Hold Harmless Insurance Policy covering everyone  And no legal actions can be taken against the National or the end customer  Plus a lot of other nonsense    When I asked why would anyone want to work with your company knowing that you do not pay until you are paid ? I also asked how do we know if you are paid or not paid from your customer ? Here is the answer sent to me                  Hello,   I will take you out of our system. The only reason we wait until the client pays us ( like every other maintenance company that isn’t upfront with you about it ) is because we are nationwide and all through Canada. If we paid every technician before getting paid we would be out of business. That would be millions we would have to lay out.   Thank you!   Dominique DiPalo Vendor Relations RKB Maintenance Solutions 330 Motor Parkway, Suite 306 Hauppauge, NY 11788 P:  516-612-7821 x 413| F: 516-706-1393 E:  DDiPalo@rkb247.com | W: www.rkb247.com
