JLG Aerial Lift as a Crane

It is not often you get it on camera, but when you do it really does speak a 1000 words. Or more!!!!

This was shared by a very competent mobile crane qualified operator that is also an experienced outdoor lighting employee. He had great concern about the practice of a company he witnessed using a JLG aerial lift as a crane.

Thanks for caring about your competition on the street. This is another example of you “get what you pay for”. Hiring an expert in the outdoor lighting industry would have avoided any unsafe operations.

Thanks to Cliff Parks at Outdoor Lighting & Energy in North Carolina                       http://www.ol-energy.com for sharing this picture. For your lighting needs use Cliff and his employees to ensure it is being done safely!!!
