I'm out of field here but could you humor my curiosity (ignorance)?Yes it is. It is basically there to keep my body in tact if pad mount blows.
We do have a long hook. They are pretty safe as long as oil lvl is good and some skunk or badger isn't hiding inside lolHahahaha!
I would be glad to give toward a kitty to buy you a long rubber pole with a hook for the toggle. mmmm. maybe we should patent that? I'm guessing it's pretty stiff, we'd have to figure out how to give you mechanical advantage from that distance.
Pretty much on the job training. I went back to school for it. The site I'm at is short three techs. The company I work for is always hiring.Are you guys hiring? I used to do tower work- i know enough about electricity to be dangerous. I am seriously under qualified. The one thing I have going for me is that I can work at heights. Does your company offer any training programs? Union? Do you have to be a Master Electrician?
Mostly just curious....
