No, I didn't get a picture of it.

The main section is 20' wide, with two 8' slide out sections.

$0. I think that the exemption is up to 80K, and I don't own that much equipment.

Yup, I'm going to be pretty selective on which jobs it'll get used on.

I have a 16 footer that I've been using when needed, not that that would be any better if OSHA showed up.

Not always true. As an owner/employee, I am also subject to OSHA regulations. I am $7000 poorer thanks to them this year.

But didnt you have employees working with you when you were fined? I thought as an owner I can work as I see fit as long as employees arent with me?...

Still sucks they took that much money from hard working person. Leaches!

I did have employees, but as long as you treat yourself as an employee, you are also subject to OSHA regs.

The biggest surprise for me was finding that OSHA fines are not tax deductible. That makes that 7k more like 10k. We got cited for fall protection. 4 total citations, one of which I got dismissed. This was also on a residential site, which has been pretty much unheard of hear until recently.

Ummm because it doesn't REALLY have 1300 hrs on it. You should have looked at the hour meter.

Re: Skytrak 8042 For Sale


I think if every osha rule was followed , I would get nothing done

I feel a lot safer in a 35' basket on my lift then up a 40' ladder
but legally I can be on a 40'ladder with no tie off, but I cant be 7' off the ground in a fully enclosed basket without being tied in

I bought this machine new in 2001. These pictures are from 2011 right after I painted it. I think that the hours are around 1300, but I will need to remember to check that at work tomorrow.

I looked around and I should be able to get close to 40k for this machine. The swivel carriage was a $5k option.

I also have a Miosha approved work platform for sale.
I know you sold it but what do you mean by swivel carriage? Thanks and Merry Christmas

Yep, I do draw a paycheck. My number one reason for being an employee is for WC coverage. I would feel pretty stupid paying for coverage for other employees, only to end up getting hurt myself and not being covered. I think if you are more of a hands off owner, being an employee may not be a good choice.
