114. Wahoo Innovations, Inc.: POLEdancer Model 1000

The POLEdancer Model 1000 is a money saving portable tool that replaces the need for a contractor to own or rent a bucket truck, pole truck, lift or crane for maintaining and installing parking lot lighting. The POLEdancer Model 1000 will set and take down single or multi head area light poles up to 40 ft in height. It is made of light weight structural aluminum alloy, extends up to 29 ft and will lift up to 800 pounds, but yet when unassembled will fit in the bed of a pickup truck or van. It can be used with a raised pole base and anchored directly to the base or without a raised pole base and anchored from the hitch of a truck. The POLEdancer can also be used for placing poles on parapet walls such as those found around the top of a parking deck by a special attachment that utilizes the weight of a vehicle for an anchor. Once assembled the POLEdancer to pole rigging is accomplished by using a specially designed patented POLEdancer Strap. The POLEdancer strap has a Y on one end that enables the lifting cable to connect to the tapered or square pole from the ground and a hook on the other end that secures the strap to the pole pull box for lifting. Other POLEdancer features includes: 1) 12v industrial hoist equipped with an overload interrupter that will not allow one to lift a load over 800lbs, 2) 12V battery pack complete with thumb controls, quick connects and a jumper cable attachment, 3) No Flat tires that allow for easy maneuverability around job sites, 4) leveling jacks for working on unlevel surfaces, 5) a 5 ft and 9 ft boom extension for working on 30 ft and 40 ft poles respectively and 6) three straps sized for 20 ft, 30 ft, and 40 ft poles.
