BAD DOG Posted July 18, 2013 Share Posted July 18, 2013 Here's how I've spent my week in this heat. 99% of the time I drive truck for a construction company were I live, weather it be pulling a n end dump, belly dump, tanker, float, or just driving a tri axle dump truck, most of my work revolves around a truck, but on occasion I do get stuck on most of the machines from time to time. Last week I was off for 3 days because my dad passed away so I had a short work week 1 day hauling tar with a tanker and a full day of floating equiptment on Friday getting things set up for Monday. Since Monday I've been stuck on a rubber tire roller with the tar and chip crew baking in the sun no a/c not even an umbrella been wearing a straw hat the last 2 days to keep from cooking my brain. And the kids on the spreader been leaving enough piles of stone all over that I have to rake out or move off the road, so I been on and off the machine all day. I usually don't mind doing it but we have all the junior guys in new air conditioned trucks, none of them did their time in any of the old beaters we used to have. I figure I should be able to loose about 30lbs by weeks end, there is a plus side to this. Here's some pics of the mess we made today near the north shore of Lake Erie near Point Pelee Provincial Park. A nice piece of German Enginering, the old Hamm roller with an air cooled Deutz engine can't kill the stupid thing. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
