i bring my boots into my room at camp....so they dont get stolen and so i can put boot heaters in them

CPKofeW.jpg


where youre sposed to leave your boots

2mTUBcf.jpg


those old jordans??? @crotch

jZXJ4qg.jpg


putting a new boomer on my chains....dunno what the previous guy did, but when i went to install them, no boomer (the boomerang looking thing)...use the chain pliers to expand the boomer eye so a chain link will fit inside it, then use the pliers to squeeze tight

P9EKjZg.jpg


how do you put chains on??? lay the chains on the tires with boomers JUST touching the ground...then tuck the other ends under the tire and then drive over them...if you drive too far youre fucked, if you dont drive far enough you gotta get back in and drive further then you end up driving too far....so i do it the retard way---lay a glove on the stair and mark out 3 bootlengths and lay glove on ground

6fswH8E.jpg


when they line up, youre golden

cFIqai9.jpg


this is perfect

we3coGz.jpg


hook up the center (between the duals) as fucking tight as possible

HPSSPLu.jpg


then tighten up boomer inside of tire (not shown) and outside of tire just like this (notice there are two more links that the boomer can hook to when the chains stretch...

2yw1PJi.jpg


when the chains do stretch, then use your pliers and remove a crosslink (the part that goes across the tread) and you can tighten up your boomers

2yw1PJi.jpg


thats pretty much perfection there...tight and on the front axle where all the torque is

pAuaVCJ.jpg


at the pad loading

uXdo8Jt.jpg


the customer is mandating that every truck is chained at all times on their road (another company rolled a truck on this customers other road and had a $1,000,000 spill) theres zero need for chains on this road under current conditions, so im running the shittiest chains possible just to wear them out and get as much life out of them before they start breaking....the yellow line is where a crosslink broke and i removed it so it wouldnt cause damage

NeHOEep.jpg


this chain is missing 2 crosslinks :rofl:

fysNQm3.jpg


when the chains get worn out, they like to knot up, see center of pic, and when they knot up, they dig into the tire, exposing cords as seen in pic

i did a tight turn and broke the blue gladhand off (you can see the red glad hand)...the glad hands twist lock to connect/disconnect...i dont have a spare gladhand so i just removed the gladhand off the trailer and the one at the end of the hose to connect to trailer, and with a couple fittings, just hardwired it so i could get air to the trailer...finished my shift and had another driver bring me parts from town (he was coming down here anyway) so i could repair it properly

@Remy Bressant that coal bucket was bought in 2010 for the 1200 loader....never used cuz while the loader was in use with the stock bucket, homeboy backed into a haul truck and fucked up the loader...loader and bucket were purchased so one machine could load coal into the feeder when the plant was running...all the operators refused to run the 1200 after the incident as it was bent and backed up funny, so they used two loaders (600s) and two operators to feed the plant

Why did you wait to burn the cat?
died overnite, found in the basement

it was winter so couldnt bury

i made effort a couple times to bring to crematorium, but its a home business, you cant just show up, and its far away, and they never answer the phone, not driving around with it in the car

summer came, i didnt bring it up, wife didnt bring it up, so i left it...shes weird aboot this stuff, so i leave it alone

all our other pets, put em down at the vet, crematorium picks em up, they didnt want me to drop off frozen kitty, so just left it in the freezer til she mentioned it

Brilliant logic on the chains. Let’s use the shitty ones to wear them out...and chunk my expensive tires to the cords.
thats my lazy cross shift

he no longer works for us

keep chains tight they dont bunch up, its that easy

and that tire lasted 2 more months before it blew :o....its all off road, no rules
