GIN POLE NEWS

Landa Mobile Systems LLC protects the ownership of Gin Pole ownership and all transfers.

We store copies of all records from day one of manufacture in the cloud and document replacements available for the life of the pole. Sold a pole let us know, we track owners and serial numbers for many reasons including theft. Thieves can never get the pole recertified and new load charts without a bill of sale.

Landa Mobile Systems LLC delivering gin pole to client for Repack HD antenna work.

As the projects begin and will be busy for while with the time constraints the industry is under. If your needing your gin pole inspected, please check out our web site and we will try and accommodate with inspection, mag particle and new load charts meeting todays requirements. OSHA fines are heavy for out of date charts, no inspection docs and work plan. Plan your work and work you plan.  Please work save and take time to do it safe and think. 

Repack begins and the poles are coming out to fill the void, since most earlier production poles miss the mark with the original production documentation now required to be certified.  I am sure there are going to be folks that try and get buy, but the fines are steep. 

As the repack begins so the demand for legal gin poles begins the saga. This pole is heading out to new owners GTI America Inc out of Buffalo, NY. They are doing work on a 900′ antenna tower in Claremore, Ok and then heading up onto a 1600′ tower in LA. This is our LMS PS24 jump track square gin pole for those large tower projects. We have them larger as well to fill you needs for any lift.

Tariff Updates: July 16, 2018, Dear Valued Customers

As many of you are aware, the United States and China have been in a trade dispute resulting in a 25% tariff on certain products originating from China effective July 6, 2018. While the situation is still ongoing, we are working closely with our manufacturer partners to identify the affected products. To see a current list of the HTS codes affected by the tariff, please reference the list from United States Trade Relations here. Unfortunately, due to the increases being passed on to Landa Mobile Systems LLC prices on many of our products will be increased to reflect the additional charges related to the tariffs.  We will only increase the price of products in the instances where the increases have been incurred. We will be including the cost of the tariffs in the unit price when applicable. This is a very fluid situation. To date, we have heard from a limited number of manufacturers and expect to hear from more in the coming weeks. https://ustr.gov/…/enforcem…/301Investigations/List%201.pdf…

When inspecting it after one year of use, it had no defects to be found. I couldn’t even find a crack in the galvanizing, let alone any deformed members. It is one WELL BUILT tool.”

GIN POLE MYTH IN DESIGN

Gin Poles while having an extra steel plate welded to them for jump track use does not increase the weight lift capability of the pole since the plates are welded on the back of the pole. The compression on the front (or outside legs) of pole has no additional support and is the most critical of the unit in design.

Chris Martin buyer withwww.codeelectricalinc.comquoted “It was a pleasure meeting you over the telephone today.  Further to our conversation, I was introduced to Landa through a couple of current trusted vendors. I looked them up online & did a little digging.  When I contacted Mike Landa I found him and his production team to be extremely professional.  He was able to give me a reasonable timeline for the products we needed and then actually reduced the timeline by two weeks and was able to turn my product around in a week.   We will be using Landa in the future and are happy to recommend them as a reputable vendor. “
