I know it's not safe outside. I just wanted to clear some points so that it would handy for me to work after the outside environment becomes safe.
I just discovered that we have the green light for a project that will take a lot of crane time. About 20 days over the 35-day project duration (this work has been postponed to a later date). With our type of work, we need a crane for about 3 hours a day, then we don't need it until the next day. Or we may need him for an hour, and then we will need him for 2 hours later in the day. These 20 days represent 6 hours per day.
It's a working feed mill, so they can't really shut totally down. Do we just tell the secretary to get out while we are making lifts? Is it practical to cover the roof with something?
There is no shortage of mobile crane services around. I'm just trying to decide if I can justify buying a crane, then selling it when we are finished the project. Right now, I don't have the cash cushion to hang onto it and keep making payments if it is not running, and I don't really have a man to put in it as a full-time operator.
Thanks for any advice you'll have. Stay safe!
