So I got to thinking about this - suppose you as the business owner/employee get injured because you were breaking OSHA rules by not using your fall protection.

Does workmans comp still cover you, or do they have an excuse not to pay out since you as the business owner didn't follow the rules?

Unless the drug test comes out positive, it would all still be covered. Now if it was done intentionally, I bet there would be a whole lot of problems collecting.

On the other hand, in the same scenario not being an employee, how does that get covered? I know many guys think their health insurance will cover it, but while they may lie about the incident and get the medical part covered, there is no way to collect for any lost wages.

Re: Skytrak 8042 For Sale


There was a guy near where I live who popped himself out of a bucket truck while not tied in, landed on his head. His wife tried to sue everyone and their brother for millions, happened at a major pharmaceutical company. She did not know that the accident was filmed by security cameras, still some money but electrical company he worked for paid a big OSHA fine even though he did 5 or 6 things wrong starting with unauthorized use of equipment.

Re: Skytrak 8042 For Sale


I didn't get a picture of it on the truck, since it was 20 degrees with 30mph winds and dark when we unloaded

But here it is in the shop, change a couple small hoses, and a universal joint, and it should be ready to go

I'm guessing you can't trailer it yourself? What's it weigh?



I know my Tele-Handler weighs 24K, but it's a little bigger.
Ended up only costing $1,000 to get it here.

Make sure and post some pictures of it in use. And let me know if that rack was worth the money...

Will do, I have a small repair job coming up that it'll get used on.

I need to get the rack up to my fabricator so he can weld some pockets on for the railing.

Re: Skytrak 8042 For Sale


Here's it's first job, a small roof leak repair.

It was 2 degrees F when we pulled in, had to put the battery charger on it, to get it to turn over fast enough to start. I was pleasantly surprised when it did start

I normally would have turned my nose up at this job, but it's for an old lady who's roofer couldn't fix the leak that started after he out the new roof on, and quit returning her calls after a while.

We got it fixed up and put back together, was a pretty shoddy flashing job. Have to go back next week once the siding comes in for the chimney.

Using the 16' platform, still haven't got the big one up to my fab guy to get the railing put on.
Didn't need the big one here anyway.

Re: Skytrak 8042 For Sale


I'm not sure if you know this, but it does have a block heater / glow plug. it is best if you can plug it in on cold nights, but even running it on a generator while you are getting everything else around will help a bit.

I also meant to tell you that when you have the wings pulled out on the big rack be careful. When you step out on the wing it is a 2" step down. That can be the highest 2" that you will ever encounter. I painted the wings orange to make them more obvious, but it still can scare the crap out of you.

I did see the block heater, didn't realize it was going to get that cold overnight, otherwise I would have brought an extension cord and timer when I dropped it off the night before.
