Hot sticks and other tools that come into contact with the elec- tric lines were tested this month. They were dry tested for a di- electric rating of 100,000 volts/ inch. They were wet tested with distilled water to 75,000 volts/ inch. Before testing, the tools are throughly cleaned. After passing the test, the tools are treated with a special hot stick wax. Of all the tools tested, two

failed. They were taken out of service & replaced. Back in June, we tested all grounds and jumpers. This month we tested the booms and bucket liners on our trucks. We also tested the material handling equipment, jib arms & winches. They are tested for stress, weight han- dling, outrigger operations and of course, their di-electric rat- ing, or ability to withstand


high voltage. As I was watching Chris Finley ready a bucket liner to be tested with 50,000 volts, he told me not to come closer than the cones. The rain left the ground wet. If the bucket liner failed, 50,000 volts would go to ground. You don’t want to be too close. As I stepped back, I thought, I‘m glad we make sure our tools and equipment are real....safe!
