    As far as asbestos goes, most people consider it "out of sight, out of mind" and it really causes no hazard if it is in a location where it won't be disturbed. That is why most people, when doing...

    Iíve been in a few old wooden floor factories. No way Iíd even consider it without a engineer certification of max floor load, and a engineer probably wouldnít touch it. Iíve seen a forklift fall...

    There isnít a very big market for big chain slings, they are just too big for most people. I attend auctions from time to time, and the smaller rigging will usually bring twice what the big rigging...

    If you canít read the tags, legally they have to be re-certified or cut up and thrown in the trash.

    That being said, there are lots of folks using un-tagged rigging. Iíd say itís worth around...

    As a person in the machinery moving business, Iíll admit I rarely take a job for less that $1,000. It just cost so much for us to operate, and even moving a small machine a few miles will eat 1/2 a...

    The great thing about propane, on a lift that isnít used very often, is it doesnít go bad like gasoline and gum up the carb. You can take a propane lift, let it sit 6 months or more, and it will fire...

    What he is talking about is a unbalanced load. If you have a pair of slings and each leg is on a different angle, the leg with the lesser angle will carry more of the load. I doubt this would be...
