Rob Allison - Down for the Count


Recommended Posts

  • Admin

Hello All,

Been trying my best to answer phone calls, pack orders and reply to emails. Earlier this week I snapped my wrist at work, which will now require a plate, screws and surgery. A 3000lb wire reel fell off the reel stand and fell on my wrist snapping it in place. Pretty nasty break and and pain ... :girl:

I have several field instructions this weekend, going to be difficult, but Im not going to let the customers down. Several partners with plenty of knowledge will be supporting/helping me.

Just wanted to let everyone know whats going on. Doing my best to type left handed. Thanks for my lovely wife, we will get through this fine.

We are still open for business like normal, so if you need something call us, email or visit the online store.

Thanks!

Are you selling your right handed 5000 cheap

I have a left handed gp3000 I'd trade on your right hand 5000

Let me know how many dollars you have to boot

Man, that sounds pretty bad. I've had an injury since Oct that left my right hand paralyzed (radial nerve palsy) About a month ago hand movement started coming back. I know all about losing the function of a hand. Hope you heal up quick.

Hi Rob,

From the sound of your serious accident, you lucky to have your hand at all,

with all that weight in play!

Wish I could give you a hand, (that didn't sound right, did it???) I think you have plenty of friends that will jump in

and help however they can!

Can we call you "Lefty" for a while?

Take care and heal fast!

Hey Rob ... Sorry to hear about the injury ... D@^n could have been much worse ... instead of being called 'Lefty' at least for awhile you could be called 'Stumpy' ... no recovery from that short of becoming the bionic man. On a more serious note heal fast and get back to work ... just secure that reel from dropping again!
