(Topic has multiple pages1 2 3 )
Just wondering what you olde....I mean more experienced guys use to mark your roofs. I use welders chalk, its hard and lasts a while, and its not as messy as colored sidewalk chalk. But is is hard to see on a grey 3 tab or white roof. I was walking the roofs on a local school district with some 'engineers', and they used a colored chalk but I couldnt get close enough to see what kind it was. I followed one guy who used electrical tape&160; in an arrow shape to point, but that is too much troubl...

1 Replies and 3726 Views Xact Disto Integration  3726  1 Started by  ihcalan I would like to hear from someone who is actually using a Disto w/ Xact.&160; My 'vision' is that I&160;can measure a room with a disto and then click a few buttons and have a sketch in Xact. However, my research seems to indicate that I need to sync the disto with xact, then type in measurements on the disto and they will show up in xact.&160; That is completely useless for multiple reasons. Anyone

3 Replies and 9799 Views What size ladder for 2 & 3 story?  9799  3 Started by  Goldust &160; I travel in a p/u w/ a 6' box and a full cab height canopy. I have been trying to decide what ladder, for 2 & 3 story would break down enough to fit in the canopy. I would rather not have to install a ladder rack on the canopy if I can keep from doing that. Anybody have some good ideas

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
What type of vehicle do you drive and What ladder do you use I am currently driving an F-250 Diesel and using a 24' extension ladder.&160; I handle mostly daily claims and average 3200 miles a month. I love having a big truck, but fuel prices are forcing me to look for a smaller vehicle. I am having a hard time finding a way to transport the ladder. Roof racks will be my only option, but on the small cars the ladder hangs off the racks a long way. Would like to hear from others on the issue.

Do you just get so frustrated with your windows computer loosing the printer drivers or failed to function right in the middle of a storm.
