One thing’s for sure – it certainly isn’t every day that you see something like this for sale to the general public.

Probably just drive around town, and play around with that cool boom attachment. A lot. While making a bunch of funny noises, just like we did back in our youth. Except this time, we’re playing around with a real big boy truck, not some plastic or metal toy. And hey, we’d think about starting a business cleaning out gutters, roofs and the like.
