When you have to work very high up without a ladder or stairs, it helps to have one of these.

march 3 006This was the sight at a communications tower — I would guess a cell phone installation — off Highway 20 in North Albany on Tuesday afternoon. From the looks of the machine and the descriptions published on the website of the Genie-brand lifts, this was a Genie aerial work platform.

Nothing much to say about it. Except this: Let’s hear it for technology that lets people work in safety at potentially hazardous heights. (hh)

    NOT recommended for windy days. Few have “out riggers” to stabilize them instead relying only on those (4) wide tires. Thanks, but no thanks. I’ll stay with my 1 ft step stool! JE
