That would be a great pole to have a vendor come and demo the advantages of using fall restraint! clown

Ill say this! Believe it or not that would be one of the better ones in my district to do it on for a vendor........hell he might even pick that very one No

If it aint drive to(only 30% is drive to) its way worse the that Usually!

I know I'll catch some flak for this, But, If ya put a 24 foot ladder up against the pole It'll get you to the secondary. You can belt in with the bucksqueeze or whatever you use above the secondary and its a clear shot to the primary! You didn't break one single rule and ya didn't even break a sweat.

I know using a ladder is kinda like cheating but where I work the poles are so conjested and rotten it takes forever to do it without breaking the safety rules.

Now if you had a nice clean pole why bother with a ladder, but seriously, how often do you get a nice clean pole backlot?

Well thankfully as of this time I can shimmy up there anyway I see fit and just trample the weak and hurdle the dead (free climb) lol! If they did mandate fall arrest I would seriously look into that method as it seems as though it would be one of the easier ways for around here! I know with all the backlots in buffalo y'all prob have it down to a science! Still won't seem right though Wink

I have used the ladder trick for years in town, it seems to me the cable guys stomp their feet so hard there is hardly and good wood left to climb. I do know of one Contractor that because of horizontal open wire secondary’s, has special place on their daily tail board , that a buck squeeze does not have to be used if it would cause any conductors to slap together. I would keep it not known bout the ladder, or they will want you belted into it while climbing it! Mad
