Hi Roadpizza...I saw your post on another users page and saw you were looking at the pod. Saw your profile and I met the first pod user in WI at a Pod informational meeting and he was a electrical lineman also. Anyway he described what he didn't like with his tubed pumps and how he got them caught on stuff or they would freeze up on him and how the pod worked better for him and just keeps his pdm in his lunchbox. Told the story of when he went to New Orleans after the hurricane and worked there. Had some great stories and how the pod works so well for what he does now. If you'd like to talk to him I'm sure I could get in touch with my rep and get his info if you'd care to speak with him...he's quite the character and seemed like a great guy..but I think anyone that crawls up tall poles and plays with electricity is going to be little on the wild side...Good luck!
