    I love to watch a well laid out and properly stemmed shot.

    Spent a few days in CAT 777F. It only had about 2 hrs on a fresh C32 repower.

    A friend sent me this yesterday. He had just unloaded some river rock when a huge gust of wind happened. Believe it or not, the only damage was 2 fenders and the tarp system on the trailer and, two air bags, some air lines and a bent battery box step on the truck. He was back on the road and headed to the yard by 4:00 pm. It went to the alignment shop today and everything including the frame is fine. Oh....the breakaways on the 5th wheel obviously didn't do their job. Hansen will be redesigning them soon.

    Pete, do you guys do anything special with the equipment when you blast? Long ago when I worked a coal strip mine, at blasting time all equipment was parked on level ground, engines off, park brakes released. Something about shock loads thru drivelines...

    Special?
    Um....when you push scrapers thru the kind of material that we do, shock loads thru drivelines is the last thing on anyone's mind
