Ron you are a heck of a teacher. Good job on another pick. Also, as far as two way radios I have SENA 20S on my motorcycle helmet and I can connect up to 8 people and all talk back and fourth. But, that for a helmet I don't know how well they will work for a hard hat. I got my SENA for $300 and it came with 2 sets.

Midland radios, the inexpensive ones from like cabelas or such, have the option for “vox” voice operation. Work fair and with the upgradedear piece are not bad. 100 for a pair with microphone and ear piece. Or in certain situations we would put our Bluetooth headsets on, blue tiger elite, and just call each other anymore.

For the communication issues get Bluetooth ear piece and do a phone call on the ear piece will work ok but if you are in a no service area that would work

Another great recovery. I'm still baffled how one sling could hold the weight of the car without ripping. I love the way everyone there, Police & Fire Fighters are all working together to help make the recovery easier. Looks like all those training workouts are paying off for everybody. Noah almost looked like one of your hired hands.Talon was excited to operate the rotator. Did an awesome job with your guidance. Love your videos.

Ron, take a look at UClear, it is about 500 for a set of two but they are excellent, used for motorcycle riding so they work in the weather, but I think with the hard hats you wear they might work well for you. You can get an "in ear" headset if you prefer. I have had mine for about 4 years now and still love it as much as day one. Since you wont be going 80 mph, you wont have any issue hearing with them.

In 1966 I wrecked an International Loadstar tractor and 40 foot rack and tarp trailer on the Sanatorium hill in St. Catherines Ontario, when I left the road to miss a car full of kids. I was putting flares out when the first cop came along and he would not believe I was the driver until he looked in the tractor and didn't see a dead body.The drivers door was bent in half and the steering wheel was touching the seat. I had a small cut in the top of my head from bouncing up and down during my thrill ride. Funny thing, the only broken glass was in the drivers door. Not even the headlight in the left fender was broken and a tree pushed it even with the steering axle. The back window had popped out and was laying on the saddle tanks, and that was my exit route.
I do like watching you work Ron.

Nice job . Your the man Talon ..You defiantly have the touch . I also think Ron is an outstanding teacher for inspiring confidence in a fella . Truth be told I reckon I'd have been asking for a little help from the big guy upstairs ,wouldn't of hurt any  . If it was as easy operating a rotator as Ron makes it look there would be no wrecker schools.   Ron & Talon take care, watch that all important part of your bodies that most other folks don't care about  your sixes !!!!!!  I still don't think the slow down move over has penetrated some drivers heads  either on your side of the pond or mine. It's not rocket science is it . It couldn't be any easier to save an operators or officers  life could it.   Thank you for another great video Ron. I like the DeWalt light pod idea ,how are they working out for you. Daz

For comms, you can always do what amateur auto racers sometimes use to talk to their pit crew - a cell phone and a Bluetooth earpiece. Just leave a call going and you can talk back and forth...and still hear what's going on around you with your other ear. Not sure if that's feasible for a conference call with a bunch of people on site...but when it's just you and one other that you really need to communicate with clearly and accurately (like when they're working the boom and cables and you're with the vehicle), then it's a thought - and cheap. and you've already got phones with you, so the only expense would be the ear pieces.

Well, for your small "communication problem" i whould suggest small portable radios with microphones on them like the police is using. Mostly those are from Motorola or Kenwood. I dont know exactly how expensive they are, but the good point is, they all have the option of a loading station for your truck so they are always loaded and easy to grab.

I used them when i was an active member of the volunteer fire department and every time i needed to use a radio i put it in the right breast pocket of my jacked, put the cable of the mic around my neck and attaced the mic somewhere on the left part of my jacked so that i could use it like the police officers. You know, grabbing the mic and talk right into it. (Got slightly inspired by them. XD)


And now i know what you meant on a previous vid when you said its better to use two cables instead of one. As Talon was lifting the car it turned itself around because it was stuck on the rocks, but later it turned back into the position it had before.

Helmet headsets: talk to this guy:

He is an arborist somewhere in the Pacific Northwest and uses helmet headsets to talk among his crew. I have a hard time believing he would have spent a small fortune on them, but they seem to work very well, and probably over longer distances than you will need.

Hi Ron. There are three different companies on Discovery Channel's "Heavy Rescue 401" that use three different type of communication headsets. I looked in to them and they are all expensive. As you mentioned the motorcycle ones are less expensive, I was looking in to them myself as sometimes I need communications. Sena makes a few that work with work helmets or cycling helmets which are not built in to the helmet.
Sena Expand-02: 980 yards, 4-way intercom, water resistant $207 CDN (cheaper in the US) https://www.sena.com/product/expand/#overview
Full loaded version of the Expand-02 is the Sena SPH10

Ron,

Concerning headsets. At the gravel pit I worked at years ago what we did was this.

Drill two small holes on the outside ring of you hard hat about an inch apart. Take a welding rod and bend it like a staple and push it trough the two holes, cut and bend on the inside.

Then get you some cheap walkies from Walmart that have the belt clip.

The idea is to hang the walkie off the hard hat with the belt clip part going through the welding rod. We typically hung on the edge by our ears. You can hear everything, and if you need to talk just reach up and hold the button.

Since it’s hanging from your hard hat you don’t have to move it for you to be close enough to the mic to talk.

Stay still do it to this day at the pit. The walkies are cheap to replace and it’s so simple it’s stupid.
Dustin Coates

Also let’s for quick removal when you don’t need it, and leaves both hands free unless you absolutely need to talk

I have to agree with most here, and, I think I mentioned it myself in the past. Some kind of communication device is needed between you and your crew mates. Why not go with most police officers approach? Go with a Walkie Talkie or other similar radio that attaches to the waist with a mike that attaches to the shirt collar, pocket, or just above your top shirt button? Nothing to hold onto and reach for the mike to key up. When I clip mine on, I never think about securing it or whatever the whole day until I get home and place it in the charger. I don't think the headset set up is feasible with your helmets, video equipment and all. A radio attached to your hip and a mike near your face...problem solved. The mike also has to serve as a speaker. I bet you see your local officers wearing theirs every day.

Wow!! What a nasty accident. So happy that nobody was seriously hurt in that one. The car is toast. I'm laughing at Talon's reaction to you letting him use The Beast Sr. :) He made me laugh out loud. You will be glad to know that my little province of New Brunswick, Canada, is adopting the "Slow Down, Move Over" as law soon, and it will include naming tow trucks as emergency vehicles. I have a friend here that's a tow truck driver, and he's been lobbying for tow trucks to be added to the list of emergency vehicles here for the last 8 yrs. I'm just waiting for this law to come into effect, which is to be in the next few months. P.S. I'm still giggling over that poor old box truck in the middle of nowhere, stuck in the mud and looking forlorn. God Bless and stay safe out there. :)

There are a number of headsets I have used over the years. Sometimes the real expensive ones are not the first choice, however there are viable options of balance. I don't know what kind of radios you use, but there are a number of VERY cost effective ones, (multiple channel, high power throw-aways), that give great service. And using radios with VOX, (Voice Operated Switch), takes your hands off the transmit button to concentrate on your work at hand. They don't cost that much at all. www.ruggedradios.com has some good 'cost effective' headsets that are moderately priced. they have an HS-11 and an HS-20 headset that work very nicely. I'm a radio communications repair guy and I deal with cool stuff often. First consideration is headsets that go over the head with a soft support so you can wear your safety helmet. They are "behind the ear" type headsets. I work for myself and deal with radios often. An inexpensive higher power commercial type radio, and some moderately priced headsets connected to them. It's a balance of the best of both worlds. You have an amazing talent for recovery of vehicles!

@Bill Z thanks for the reply. This is a big decision. I appreciate everyone's input. I don't want to waste money on a system that isn't going to work for us. I am having difficulty swallowing the $7000 price tag of the headsets designed for our industry (Sonetics). I would gladly allow them to sponsor me!!!! LOL. Doubt that will happen, but I can dream. Thanks again, and God bless.

The Sena headsets are Bluetooth based. Yes, they connect to the phone seamlessly, (or should), and they do have a longer range for a Bluetooth device. They claim 1.2mi "under best conditions". (Typical Bluetooth devices have a range of 30 feet, give or take.) Down side is they are digital devices. If the digital signal is not near perfect, there is no understandable communication unless signals are 'perfect'. It's the same with your digital TV's today. You either have a picture and sound which is perfect, or you have nothing at all. All the police and emergency folks use digital communications. In my area, the police are scared they won't have clear communication service in weak areas when they really need it. In your environment, I don't believe they would serve you the best for the money you would spend on them. Read page 47 of their own manual for them. (https://www.sena.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/12/UsersGuide_Sena_SPH10H-FM-v4.3.pdf) Things like, "Don't get them wet", "Don't store them in a hot or cold area..." "Don't bang them around...", etc. Can you see yourself pamper your devices in your business? I know I wouldn't! :-) I could probably call your office one day, if you like, and I can possibly assist you in your best use of whatever you require.

Do you know anything about the Sena brand? I have been researching their headsets for several reasons. First, they are good quality. Second, they have long range intercoms. And, lastly, they will Bluetooth sync with my phone so I can safely answer calls while working. I use something similar while riding a motorcycle, which is what gave me the idea. Sena builds coms for bikes also. Thanks and God bless.

Go fund me Ron, I'm sure your viewers would help with some headsets. Just like with the tired Taurus . what goes around, comes around. Just curious, what was the price of the headsets you were looking at???
B61 Mack
B61 Mack - 3 years ago
Ron. Check on amazon they have sets ranging from $300.00 for a set of 2 and less then $2,000.00 for multiple sets. Just make sure you put in the words self contained radio headsets.
Ron Pratt
Ron Pratt - 3 years ago
Unfortunately, the professional name-brand master set (that I won't mention the name of) for 5 people is over $7000.00. That's why I am looking into a less expensive alternative. Sena makes some good products for a fraction of that cost. I appreciate the idea of a Go-Fund-Me for the headsets, but I don't want to ask my viewers to do that for something that is simply a "desire" of mine. Setting up the Go-Fund-Me to help the lady in need with the Tired Taurus was awesome and I honored to be a part of helping her. There was a real need there. I do appreciate the idea and hopefully we will find something that will work for us. Thanks for watching and God bless.

Looks like it hit the back with the rear - so the seats and headrests took the force, rather than a skinny seatbelt for the body and nothing much to support the head. Never really thought it was lucky to spin around and crash rear-end first...but that's probably what saved them from injury, I reckon. ;-)

Great video, Glad everyone was unhurt and got to go home. Question for ya Ron. When the boom is at max ext. What is the lifting cap of it? I don't know if it was cause the video was at night, or the bank making it look like it, but the boom looks like it is being pulled down and has a nice curve to it. @20:00 is what I'm looking at with the curve.
Ron Pratt
Ron Pratt - 3 years ago
With the boom "rolled" all the way to the rear, extended all the way, and at flat elevation it has a safe lift capacity of around 18,000 lbs. The "curve" you were seeing must be an illusion, because that little car was no struggle at all. Thanks for watching and God bless.

They are made by Dewalt and are hard to get right now. Dewalt underestimated the demand for them. I ordered mine from my Mac tool distributor. If they are in stock you can order them from Amazon. If you purchase just the light, not the kit with battery and charger, the light is just over $200. Thanks for watching and God bless.

If you get something for your hard hats, one that is VOX operated could be an option, but every time you talk that would cause the radio to transmit, V= voice O=operated X=transmit. It would have advantages and disadvantages. If you get something and the sales person talks about privacy codes that will 'give' you more channels, they are blowing smoke. Privacy codes prevents your radio from hearing someone else that might be working in your area with radios on the same frequencies.

If you get radios with that feature, two important things to remember, set all your radios to the same 'privacy code', and the second thing is, if someone has those same frequencies in their radio (or scanner) without 'privacy codes' they can hear everything you say over the radio. So don't say anything on the radio that you don't care if someone else hears.

The reason I sound like a wind bag is I have been licensed as a Amateur Radio operator since May 17 1994, that doesn't make me an expert, just someone that has an understanding of those thing. Motorola is a well known name BUT an expensive brand as I suspect you have already found out.

You can get headsets to work with GMRS/FRS radios that are very reasonable. They can be used voice activated or push-to-talk. That allows you to put the radio in a pocket, safe and secure, and keep your hands free to wear gloves.
Elwenil

It's been some time since I have bought one, but my personal favorite was an iASUS throat mic. I've had it for a decade or more and it has outlasted several GMRS radios. Keep in mind that some radios have proprietary wiring for their mics so you have to make sure what you are buying will work with your specific radio.

snag a neck strap and you have a NOOSE when falling etc. if you do use one make sure it's a break away style. Since there is usually only two winchmen on a job, talk to Blue Parrot about headsets for the cell phones.

How about using your Bluetooth headset on your phone.

Those little FRS things are good, but get some neck straps or lanyards so that they're hanging where you can hear them, and they're a little more protected than they would be hanging off your hip or in a back pocket.  As for keeping them charged,  yeah it's another responsibility, but if you get a few sets of AA batteries, you can have spares in the truck and throw them on the charger back at the shop.  Or, keep some alkaline AA's in the truck.
