    “I’ve been a climber for 31 years and stacked towers for 9 of those years. I’ve worked with dozens of styles and sizes of poles and yours, by far, was the most sturdy and well constructed. 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 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 the pole has no additional support and is the most critical of the unit in design.

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. “
