Since our founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to the market with our durable product solutions. Today, we are eager to tell you about ReechCraft's commitment to safety!

Safety First with ReechCraft
The construction industry can often be full of hazards, caused by the use of heavy materials, working at great heights and a myriad of other factors that are just inherent with the job. That’s why ReechCraft strives to make our access products as safe as possible, making the good work you do easier and safer than ever before!

Part of how we achieve such a high level of safety standards is by following Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines to the "T". ReechCraft products all adhere to OSHA standards in order to create the safest working conditions possible for the people who use our products.

When it comes to our PowerMastPowerPole and Bronco, following OSHA’s scaffolding regulations is a priority. OSHA details protocols to follow for optimal scaffolding safety and ReechCraft attends to them all. These standards can be found in OSHA’s Safety and Health Regulations for Construction guide under “Subpart L” for scaffolds.

In addition, our PowerLifts are built to the OSHA standards for lifts. Details on this can be found in “Subpart L” in the section on aerial lifts. From weight capacity guidelines to quality of product construction, you can rest assured that our access solutions will keep you safe on the jobsite because of our innovative design and dedication to safety requirements.

Why Does ReechCraft Use a Drill and Gearbox Instead of an Internal Motor?

Since our founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We are excited to share our product highlights and tips with you so that you can take full advantage of our American-made products. Today, we are eager to tell you the answer to a couple of our most frequently asked questions!

_____________________________________________________________________________

Why does ReechCraft use a drill and gearbox instead of an internal motor? 
For over 25 years, ReechCraft has been a top innovator in the access industry. We work hard to solve the most basic access problems with new and improved products. But, we're frequently asked why we choose to use a gearbox and drill rather than an internal motor.

ReechCraft components are made of lightweight, easily-portable aluminum and strong, durable steel. To keep the overall unit as light as possible, heavy batteries or motors were not an option. We knew a gearbox along with drill would provide a very reliable, yet lightweight option. Craftsmen are comfortable working with a drill, and this is a tool they likely already have on the jobsite.

Another big reason is maintenance. ReechCraft wants to create products with minimal regular required maintenance so you can spend more time on the job. Our gearbox doesn't have to be recharged or plugged in, there are no cables to clean and there's no battery acid to worry about, especially in extreme temperatures.

Finally, a gearbox is much more cost effective than an integrated motor. There are no batteries to replace or electronics to service. A gearbox using top-of-the-line internal components will last a very long time! In the event that a problem does occur, your gearbox can easily be serviced without having to replace or repair an expensive motor.

What type of drill does ReechCraft recommend? 
To power our PowerLift, we recommend a 18v–20v cordless drill with two 5AH lithium ion batteries. To power our PowerMast and PowerPole, ReechCraft recommends a high-quality, corded 120v hammer drill (with the hammer function turned off). Hammer drills are more powerful than standard drills, and will last longer.

Exterior Restoration with ReechCraft

Since our founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We are excited to share our product highlights and tips with you so that you can take full advantage of our American-made products. Today, we are eager to tell you how our various ReechCraft products can help those of you who work in the exterior restoration business!

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Since we started the ReechCraft blog nearly two years ago, we've featured several case studies on exterior restoration projects. We invite you to click on over to see pictures and read the full case studies to learn more about ReechCraft's unique and innovative access solutions!

#1: Tuckpointing with PowerMast in Kansas City 
KC Scaffold, which has over 40 years of experience delivering scaffolding services & products, used ReechCraft's PowerMast to work on an upscale six-unit apartment complex that required tuckpointing. This was a project that required safe and easy access to these busy apartment buildings, which are located on a steep hillside. By using a PowerMast twin system along with standard scaffolding, workers were able to access all surfaces of the building’s exterior at a comfortable height and could keep all of their tools handy! Sean Connolly at KC Scaffold told us, "The ReechCraft Powermast worked out great for this application!" Click here to read the full blog!

#2: Window Replacement with PowerPole in South Dakota 
Midwest Glass was looking for an easy, safe, and fast solution to replace 180 windows in a historic 1921 building located in Brookings, South Dakota. They considered boom lifts, scaffolding and other solutions, but ruled them out for various reasons. ReechCraft's PowerPole was a good solution because it provided a much faster setup time than scaffolding and made for easier access to the building. Not only did PowerPole prove to be safe for workers and easy to set up, it saved workers significant time and energy since it is a powered lift rather than a pump jack-style system. Jacob Mills, of Midwest Glass said, “The PowerPole is working out great on this project and I see us using it on many projects in the future!” Click here to read the full blog!

#3: Window and Brick Restoration in Fargo, North Dakota 
Mid-Continental Restoration completed a maintenance and restoration project in Fargo, ND, repairing joints and caulking around windows and other exterior surfaces. Access had to be quick and efficient to get the project done promptly and safely, but rocks and bushes around the perimeter of the building limited access and created an uneven working surface.  Mid-Continental Restoration has been using the ReechCraft PowerPole system for a long time and knew it would be the right system to complete this project. The working height of this project was ideal for PowerPole, and the outriggers made positioning the system around the existing landscaping fast and easy. Foreman Jason Boehmer said, “I love the PowePole system and knew it would be a perfect fit for this job!” Click here to read the full blog!

PowerMast Helps with a New Construction Project on a Colorado Mountainside

Since our founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to the market with our durable product solutions. Today, we are eager to tell you how ReechCraft's PowerPole helped with a new-construction project on a rural Colorado mountainside!

______________________________________________________________________________________________________

PowerPole Goes to Work in Rural Colorado: Case Study
Problem: Boss Architecture, a Denver-based multi-disciplinary design firm, is currently working on a new construction project for a remote cabin in the Rocky Mountains. Access to the tree house-like structure required a product that could work on a slope and be able to move workers and materials at a fast and efficient rate. Because of limitations due to the rural location of this cabin and difficult terrain, larger equipment was impractical to use and costly to transport. Boss Architecture had previously used a pump jack for this type of work, but that strained workers and was time consuming.

Solution: Boss Architecture installed the ReechCraft PowerPole system on this job. The highest point of the system was 40', which is great for a PowerPole tied to the structure. Speed and ease of travel were the most important considerations to Kevin Stephenson at Boss Architecture and his team. With PowerPole, workers were able to quickly access this building's exterior from top to bottom. The system is light enough to be carried into place by hand. The steep, uneven terrain and nearby trees and shrubs were easily worked around.

Benefits: The benefits are easy to identify! Quick installation, lightweight enough to move by hand, simple to use, safe and less strenuous for workers - the list could go on and on! "This system works very well, and allows us to travel up and down each facade with much more ease than our older pump jack setup", said Stephenson. He continued, "ReechCraft has a good thing going with their system, and I am surprised more people aren't using it!"

This cabin looks like a fun project in such a beautiful area! We hope to share more photos from Kevin and his team in the future! If you have a ReechCraft project and would like to be featured on our blog, email pictures and information about the project to customer.service@reechcraft.com.

PowerMast
If you need to access heights of up to 200 feet, then you need ReechCraft’s PowerMast. This access solution has a tools-free assembly, making it incredibly easy to transport and use. In fact, a 100-foot twin system will fit in the back of a pickup truck!

PowerPole
One of the most important aspects of any construction project is making sure that you can get all of your materials to where they need to be, when they need to be there. With ReechCraft’s PowerPole, you’ll be able to get your materials and equipment to hard-to-reach places without a second thought. Whether it’s between buildings, on rooftops or around unique landscaping, the PowerPole can do it all.

Window Replacement on Historic Building in Brookings, South Dakota: Case Study

Since our founding in 1993, ReechCraft has set itself apart with innovative products and first-rate services. We pride ourselves on our ability to respond to the market with our durable product solutions. Today, we are eager to tell you how ReechCraft's PowerPole helped a South Dakota company replace windows in a historic mixed-use building. 

__________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Window Replacement with PowerPole: Case Study

Problem:
Midwest Glass designs, repairs, and installs windows, doors, custom glass showers, glass furniture, automotive glass, framing and more in commercial and residential settings. Their mission is to provide customers with excellent service, products, and workmanship at a fair price, to be a good steward to the community and to provide a safe workplace that gives employees the opportunity to grow and achieve a high quality of life.

Midwest Glass was looking for an easy, safe, and fast solution to replace 180 windows in a historic 1921 building located in Brookings, South Dakota. This property is currently housing 18 luxury apartments as well as professional office space. Boom lifts provided limitations because of the size of the windows; some of the windows being installed were 16’-18’ wide. Scaffolding was impractical because of long set-up times and limited wall access. With so many windows to be replaced, Midwest Glass needed a solution that allowed workers to remove old windows and install the new ones quickly and efficiently.

 

Solution:
Midwest Glass had seen ReechCraft's PowerPole and thought it might be a good solution to the problems they were faced with. PowerPole provided a much faster set-up time than scaffolding and allowed workers to “leapfrog” the climbing units, only having to move one unit at a time in order to access the next part of the building. Not only did PowerPole prove to be safe for workers and easy to set up, it saved workers significant time and energy by climbing up and down the pole using a gearbox with a simple corded drill rather than the pumping action of pump jack-style systems.

 

Benefits:
Midwest Glass was instantly pleased with PowerPole's ease of set up, and is continually impressed by the efficiency and speed at which workers can travel up and down the wall, even with a heavy load. Midwest Glass representative, Jacob Mills, said, “The PowerPole is working out great on this project and I see us using it on many projects in the future!”
