    He is trolling you guys. Why don’t you see it?
    Your just looking to cause trouble tough guy. Obviously know it’s a lift but usually there’s a trade/slang name people use to refer to them….just as someone mention. Makes sense????

    I can build anything you want if you draw a picture of it on the back of a big enough check.

    There's no substitute for hard work....but that doesn't mean I'm going to give up trying to find one.

    No trouble. I just call it as I see it.

    People on here have expressed their opinion on some of my posts and I can see where they're coming from most times. I think most would disagree on internet troll and it's just factually not true. Have a nice night

    I believe the generic term is a materials lift, and different heights and capacities are available.

    I would absolutely do this ^^^
    I would not want any liability for damaging property or personnel.

    I must ask....how is something like this even in your scope of work? Are you the primary contractor?
    "Displays" sounds like they are signs to me.
    I would hire a rigger or sign contractor...period

    Where do you draw the line on hiring a "rigger"?

    Setting light poles is EC or rigger job?

    Running 4" RMC at a 30 foot ceiling - EC or rigger job?

    Hanging large luminaire - EC or rigger job?

    Setting a large switchboard or MCC in place?

    EC may choose to use rigger but I don't think those tasks and many others are outside what might be expected from an EC either.
    I live for today, I'm just a day behind.

    Setting light poles is EC or rigger job? << If the EC has the bucket/crane truck to set the poles, go for it. Who pours the foundation and sets the anchor bolts?

    Running 4" RMC at a 30 foot ceiling - EC or rigger job? << EC-- with a pair of scissor lifts, one at each end of the pipe.

    Hanging large luminaire - EC or rigger job? << EC-- with a scissor lift; probably 2 guys up there.

    Setting a large switchboard or MCC in place? << EC-- but who drives the fork lift? Don't you have to be 'licensed' to drive one in most plants?


    Company I worked for had a fireproof safe/vault to be installed, and later, moved. It's about 6' wide, 7' tall, and 4' deep. Weighs the proverbial ton. It was definitely a 'rigger' job!


    When the OP mentioned several 500# displays, I imagined they were electronic display panels, like one of those signboard complexes dangling overhead at the airport-- 3 or 4 screens around a central mount. As someone asked-- how strong is the ceiling?


    I think the decision has to be based on the EC doing the job-- what are their skills, equipment, training, etc. Not every EC has the right mix to do every job.

    Our union claims the work since there is power/data( we are doing the power and data) being brought to the unit.
