    I am just about to finish a basic lineworker program at a community college and just wanted to see how many lineworkers are at TW. I'm just ready to get out in the field and become part of the lineman brother-hood, I know I got to earn my stripes but I believe I'm ready. If your a grunt, operator, lineman, foreman, or anything else in the the line trade I'd like to hear from you.

    Brother in law is, he rides one of these to work. Loves it, although your mileage may vary depending on how queasy you are.

    I work for a power company with a lot of line workers. I'm only a electricial meter reader though.
    The lineworker trade is really booming. I really wish I did that trade years ago. Excellent salary, security, benefits, and tons of overtime
