    I am on the other side of the fence on this. I lost my hearing about 8 years ago, so as an owner I would be up S*** creek without the ability to "talk" digitally. I also get annoyed with the plain jane emails that have no info but want price, but I will most generally ask them once for details and if no good response I just delete the chain and move on. One other thing I like about email is that it can cover your AZZ in stead of "that is not what I said on the phone". Just my perspective Richard

  4. Who carries your worker's comp

    Switched all of my insurance to Donegal. Better coverage than what I had with Nationwide and about 1/2 cheaper. My W/C comes out weekly based on my actual payroll so there is never a chance to be hit with a huge audit owed. I still have to give them audited figures at the end of each year but so far they have sent me a check both years. I also get 10% back from my W/C if I have no claims.
  5. Anybody reconize this truck

    My contract is pretty much the same but a couple years ago I was repoing a sign in Ocean City and the owner called the cops. I had copies of contract as well as the original and copies of the unpaid invoice. Cops said it did not matter what my contract said, the law stated I was trespassing and she would have to lock me up. She said it is not their job to enforce a private contract. I asked her who was going to be responsible for the sign that was 1/2 removed because I sure as hell wasn't re-installing it. Luckily, the owner was being a real jerk even to the police (foreigner) and the cop got mad with him. Long story short they almost arrested him for interfering with the cops. I got a police bodyguard while I finished taking the pylon down and she told me it would not happen that way again, next time I would go to jail. I thanked her profusely and came back to my shop. When all was said and done I got paid the balance of what I was owed originally, got paid to take it down, got paid to put it back up and he requested while reinstalling it to lower the entire sign 6' which cost him even more. I made him pay for everything in certified funds before I touched a tap. It worked out for me on that one, but it could have ended with me being arrested. I told the cop I was willing to go to jail if it meant I got the sign down. I had another sub shop that tried to stiff me on final payment. Repo'd 2 of his locations same morning. When we finally spoke later that morning he told me if he knew I was serious about enforcing the contract he would have paid me. Cost him a lot of extra money but he still calls me for work several years later and always pays me same day.
  6. My computer was recently upgraded and I now find myself in need of a driver for my plotter. The only one I can find online keeps coming up with message that a Trojan is attached. I can find some for the Fastrac 1000 but nothing for the 1300. Anyone happen to still use this and would care to send me a driver file? Thanks Richard

    As of 6 months ago it was Icon. I no longer do work for either so that may have changed.

    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

    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
