To date, my biggest lift has been 300 tons. It's an awesome field to work in.
    You might know my little brother..he flies all over the world and oversees all the heavy equipment comming into a country..and I think he is a part time "spook" too! He got his start after the 1st gulf war by getting all the equipment into Kuwait to put out the fires..he has worked for Bechtel and FlourDaniel and a couple others international Companies..he now works for him self and his last gig was in Madigascar..he flies out agn in NOV..I have a fascination for cranes and lifting heavy things...got any "scary" stories?

    I'm only about 3 years into it....anything truly scary has been regaled to me by others. The work I'm in now is mainly load testing other people's equipment. That sometimes involves breaking things. It's pretty neat to see something rated for, say, 200 tonnes let go at about 2.1 million pounds. You think a .40 S&W is deadly? Try a 10 lb hunk of steel that just let go. LOTS 'O' DENTS!

    But, I'm proud to say I've never dropped a load or caused any damage....unless someone paid me to do it.

    LOL !! I was also known as Dr. Daylight. " You want a light thinning? .... Ok, thin for light ! " As far as the lineman goes .... hats off to you.I don't mind trimming, but I stayed away from the mean green. I was strictly residential - preservation.

    I doubt my profession will be much help to you guys but I'll throw it out there to get things started.

    I'm an IT Director for an oil and gas exploration and production company. If you're thinking about starting a company and need IT advice give me a holler. If you need help with an oil rig in your back yard I can help you there as well. :)
