Andrew the mechanism is excellent , we have a similar one in Russia based on KAMAZ . with a similar remote control . The only thing that you have is smaller in size and you can squeeze between the trees.

Love your video's and channel Andrew. I have to comment on you and the other guy NOT wearing a safety lanyard and harness while loading and operating that ancient Condor/Calavar boom lift or any boom lift. I was in the heavy equipment rental industry for decades. Sadly, many rental company drivers were killed after being ejected from the basket while loading a boom lift due to not having a harness and lanyard on. Other boom lift operators were killed while being up in the air in the basket when the basket leveling pin failed, dumping the basket over and the operator falling to his death. Harnesses and lanyards are not expensive and save lives. I'm not trying to be overly cautious, but rather, I enjoy your videos and want to see you around to continue to make them! 👍

Would anyone trust those horrible, flimsy a-frames to hold up a roof properly?? I am not an engineer, but I have built enough houses. I always build my own a-frames :) Thank you for rescuing the lost puppy!!!

Good for you to rescue the dog! Up here in Canada there is proper use of using a AWP(aerial work platform). It is not to use the equipment as a “lifting devise”. The weight is what platform can care in the basket.

I have a question for Andrew, or some of his followers who might know, at the end of most videos, when the drone goes up for the shot of the mountains, is the drone looking in the direction of the castle? Or just a scenic shot of the mountains?

"Anyone got a philips?" as he holds a knife up to it haha. Good call with the winch under the carriage. I'd probably also place one on the trailer itself, if you can get one large enough to assist with pulling that kind of weight.

Hi! If you need that 30 amp connection to really work, you might check an RV supply place for an extension cord. Now, getting someplace to PLUG THAT into could be a tougher challenge.

Truss was 160lbs. But that lift is 9 tons on solid tires, that's why it can work no outriggers.

Down here, guys just walk the top plates to end of the wall, grab both ends with ropes and walk it into place. A long 2x4 flips the truss upright and on to the next one. But I'm like you -- I like using machinery for everything.

Did anyone see the max lift 500 lbs ? I believe that it was over loaded. It's not a crane . I hear the warning sound. Of over load. Disconnect the safety switch ! ALWAYS SAFETY FIRST . OSHA GONNA GET YA.

Don’t see any diagonal bracing on those trusses. Building a church in CT. Back in the 80’s , same mistake. A wind came up, the entire row of trusses collapsed. Two men died. The triangle is the strongest structural shape. Just a couple of 2x4’s as diagonals might save a life if one truss slips or is pushed over, taking down the entire group. Do not wait for your own experience to teach you a lesson. It’s too expensive and sometimes heartbreaking, not just expensive. Do the job right the first time. Perfect is close enough!
Hope I don’t come across as critical and “ know it all”. 30 years in construction and you see a few hard lessons. Work safe , Bless you.

I really like watching your videos, but you have to be safe and follow the safety regulations, that's what they are there for. I have been in construction for well over 40 years and have never had a serious accident nor has there been one on one of my jobs. Be safe out there. I have seen too many people get hurt on jobs for not following the rules.

@Andrew Camarata Actually no man lift is rated to pickup or lift anything, the 500 pound rating is for the capacity of the persons in the bucket, period. Osha rules also require that any persons in the lift bucket have Personal fall protection on and attached to the machine while in the bucket. You might want to inform yourself a little better about OSHA rules and safety requirements.
Andrew Camarata
Andrew Camarata - År siden
Mike LaBelle no it’s not. It’s rated to pick 500lbs. That was less than that.

Andrew you should never even get in the basket without a safety body harness on. A friend of mine unloaded one just like that and one without one and wheel came off the ramp an there was no way he could hang on he was ejected and landed on his head, died instantly. This happened in between the 2 planes ✈️ on 911. Just like those guys that top off tall trees and they go for a ride and you better be strapped in.

When Andrew is not in charge of a job they go overboard. Lifting the trusses could have been done with 4 guys in 4 hours. Ladders and nail guns are all you need.

The trick to loading is spin around, put the basket on the dirt and extend the boom and push your self up with motor assist. When your up, spin around...easy peassie.
