For all of you inquiring about lifts, the ones we use are th 35' and 50' towables. these are great due to the fact that 2 people can muscle them around.also like in our case we have a 4 wheeler specifically for when we use these lifts, that has a ball on it so we can get the lift in and out of tight area without damaging the yard with the weight of a trucks. this way you can get in peoples back yards. if you work out a deal with your local rental place you can get them pretty cheap. ours run about 150 for the day. hope this helps. also one more thing, a lift can sometimes be more trouble than its worth so make sure you can't just do the job without it.

Good stuff !
Agreed, we only use a lift as a LAST resort.

The towables are MUCH less cost, and a 4 wheeler is a great idea.
My headroof cleaner Kevin also had the idea of getting a 4 wheeler vs buying a powered 4wd lift.

If you have any pictures of your lifts, or you using them, please post them ?

We have had to use lifts on a few occations. They now have lifts with spider legs that adjust themselves and level off with a push of a button. those are sweet. Haven't used one yet though. Here are a few of the lifts we have used. Some for Roof Cleaning and some for Hurricane Shutters that we install and take down for a clients commercial building in Largo Florida each year. We've usedsome from 45footers to 80 footers.

Very Cool Larry,

Nice pics of lifts for roof cleaning and other applications.

It has been a while since I have had to use a manlift of any kind but they definately have their place and are a godsend when there is no other option.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I've used them, but they make me nervous!!!
Talk about possible damage to a home!! smile.gif
Man, with one of these things, the wrong turn and the yards tore up, the wrong push of a handle and the house it tore up!
I now feel I have enough work, that if it requires a boom, the homeowner can keep on looking for another roof cleaner-with more nerve! smile.gif {Or ability with cherry pickers! smile.gif]

Hey Charlie,

Just watched your You Tube Video of Roof Cleaning In Long Island, NY.

Great job on the Roofs and what a great, simple, short and to the point roof cleaning video.

Very Nice! Good Job! You should be proud.

Glad to have you here on the forum.

Best,

David W.

Dave, I did Charlie's Signature.
Lacking a web site, I stuck the roof cleaningvideo in there for him.
I worked out really well.
Yes, I watched it, and I LIKE it.
Short, sweet, to the point.

I'd like to see his video, but I did a Youtube search for "Roof Cleaning In Long Island, NY"
and it didn't come up?
