I got on a 26 foot scissor lift to prune trees! Two days with a chainsaw on that damn thing is two days too long. We did prune enough for lots and lots of apple wood for smoking and cooking, though.
You know what the best part about scissor lifts are though? When you're all the way up, they sway. Not so much as to tip you over, but when you are three stories up with branches falling all around, and the ground below you starts to sway, well it's like winning the vertigo lottery.
