Same thing here.. And do you want to know why????

They are tired of hobbyists wanting to know *everything* about the unit they
are about to buy.. and then if they finally do decide to buy it most show up
in a mini van! Further, companies want a Comp. number so they are not
responsible if I get hurt on the premesis. The last thing in the world
companies want to deal with is a hobbyists... they want someone to come in,
bid on weight, and pick up the load professionally and quickly.

No grief..
