        From what I know it's about 50/50, sectional/drum.

        You would definitely need the extra help running a sectional over a drum.

          Sometimes its nice to have an extra set of hands and eyes.

          99% of the time I am by myself.

            I don't need any help running any machine. Doesn't matter if it's in a basement or a roof.

            That goes true for my big jetter too.

            Even 100 gallon 750# water heaters.

            It's knowing how to work and how to handle the weight.

            Sure it's fun to have a sidekick, but it's not necessary to get the job done.

              So your earlier comment was bias against my beloved drum machine ???

                Well, most of us know it doesn't. But it probably has to do with the quality and knowledge of the people they are sending out, decreasing liability, and some might be more efficient that way.

                  Sure it might be nice sometimes but to have to pay an extra hand for basically nothing............. ???

                    Re: Why..........

                    Have you ever tried to haul a 1065 down a 15 step flight of stairs, with a turn halfway down, then get it back up?........

                    It's 2 guys to get the drum in, then 1 to sit on the bucket and 1 to do the song and dance to the customer.

                    Ridgid sectionals inside or outside go a little faster with 2 guys as the 2nd guy can handle the cables (feed them in from the back and recoil them on the way back out)

                        If the machine is too heavy, and you hurt yourself lifting too much weight, workers compensation will have cause to dismiss your claim. Man up all you want until you are hurt.....

                              Would it be workplace health safety related, in that the company (or its insurer) does not want one tech working alone. A lot of companies are getting safety inspectors that have strange ideas on how things should be done.
