Hey Michael, I'm not sure how much info your looking for but it's a 1994 e-one 95' tower. There is one almost identical to ours in the next town over. I have heard rumors that there aren't too many out there. We've been told to be careful with her cause it's getting harder to find parts. Good truck but a little slow moving the main. On another note how's things in Alaska? My brother just moved up there last week to be a chef at a resort near Denali. He said there was still 2' of snow! Let me know if you want any other specifics and I can get them for you. Stay safe, Erbe

Hey Mike -

Glad to see you're doing well. I'm sure you've had some interesting experiences in the great white north. Hopefully, we trained you right.

Take care. Keep in touch.


Stay safe. Train often.

I'm still standin' Hef. I promised him I would take care of the boys. They can pry my University Badge off my cold, frozen body. Won't come off till the end.
