These two units were at the local dealer for tune up. And they have all the bells and well shade and a fan inside the shade. And mic so they can talk to dispatch. Wanta guess who has these decked out units?

They must be for the airport which is why they say aviation on the top. The guy who fixes my stuff is an AISD mechanic. I get same day service sometimes and nothing ever sits like at the dealerships.

One day it got up to 90F and two days later the temp drops and instead of snow we got a big overnite hail storm. Pretty much done my roof in again for the 3rrd time in 10 years.

The last pictures was a 50 yd top soil job where the guy got it out
onto a busy road. So we closed one lane for about an hour

Do you have to notify police/fire/e911 when closing a road/lane in Texas? Out here you have to get approval.

No they were nice about it since it was anticipated and the truck driver had
already left. We had one guy up the street acting as flagger.

Adding a helper wheel to our big gates into our shop area. Some day
I will get a welder and fix this all up right Notice that thread stock I buy that in 6' pieces then cut it to size as needed. Took me a lot of years to figure out doing that instead of buying individual bolts. Got a dremel that cuts it off so the threads aren't damaged.
