No New Posts 40' Ladder Brands
 
(Preview)
We have an upcoming job where we need to buy our first 40' ladder.  We are planning to go with a Werner 40' 300lb IA.  Typically, we buy Werners, but just wondering if anyone has found a better ladder for the forty footer?

I was tired of replacing straps and bungees, and did not want to rely on employees knot tying abilities.  I went searching for a better ladder tie-down alternative.  I found a very cool item.  They seem to be used more in Europe, and you can get them cheaper from there on Ebay, but these are made in the US a...

Holy humming extension ladder on top of my GenIII skid! Talk about a headache at the end of the day. I'm going to use the old expanding foam inside each ladder rung trick unless you guys know of a different solution?

I have been given an opportunity to get in with McDonald's and do some work for some of their stores. The problem is I don't have a good starting point for pressure washing as I am a soft washer.

I know this isn't softwashing, but anyone have any tips for removing latex paint from asphalt and brick? Acid and hot water? The customer is prepared to see the coating come off the asphalt. Thanks!

Have any of you guys used in tank heaters in your tanks to keep your mix at a warmer temp? I looked online and found an in tank heater that connects through the bung at the bottom, any thoughts? It's 110v so you'd need an inverter.

I only use this if we can not reach the gutters with a pump sprayer. Basically just pull the cart to the center of the yard and extend the hose which is a 100ft 3/8 inch hose and usually can get most of the front of a large house. We have a wheel chair trailer hitch that it sits perfectly into and attaches to our...

Some of the crew kept conveniently forgetting to don their reflective safety vests when in high traffic areas such as parking lots and garages.... so I solved that problem with the last order of crew shirts! 100% moisture wicking polyester in DAYGLOW yellow!

Took my machine out today and the pump is only putting out about half the psi it should be. Been in heated storage all winter anf winterized as well. Thinking it's an air pocket trapped in the pump but not sure. Any ideas? Pump only has 172 hours on it.

Depending on your location, snowplowing is a great alternative to sitting on the couch. When you have the surplus of money in July start looking for Plows, thats what I did to snag this deal. Pull from your roof cleaning customer base to gain snowplow clients. With enough clients you can pay back your s...
