    78D03231-C2DB-45A2-877C-7A9FE473BA3E.jpeg Hi,

    Will this work if I take the blade off for when I go to do belly straps? I’m not really sure how this works, but I don’t have a painters pole, just this attachment and a long pole after I take off the attachment on it that’s made for picking pears, apples, etc off of high limbs (like a basket).

    Best regards, John

    Yes it will. I use a 5th wheel puller.

    It will work better than what you have now for sure (Nothing?).

    You could also go to the hardware store and get a pvc T fitting that will fit on the end of that pole... use it for both edge protectors and pushing straps...

    I will post a picture later of mine...

    The PVC would be less than $1

    So you’re aware of my WE budget huh hehe I’m glad I don’t have any kids or a girlfriend; on top of being a new driver and still learning the ropes in flatbed I’m only getting paid 32 cents a mile and even though I do my shopping at Walmart now on my decent paychecks ($600) I’m averaging about $100 a week in profits; credit card bill, phone bill, food/supplies, citation I got during training, etc

    I used a 1x8 board, hook the strap to the board, slide it through.
    When not in use it was on top of my boards under dollies.

    Take a piece of rebar and bend back one end. Cheap, easy to carry, light to work with, and if you lose it you haven't lost much.

    The 'last' "kiddo" that I tried to sponsor (in a way) fell flat..and so did I. @Mike2633 .. tell him.

    Crap about the citation. I missed that because you have like 82 threads and I can't find 'em all...at fifty some'ot, haha! (<< but not?!?)
