My Kinda pictures...

Well it seems that all the cool kids have a thread dedicated to pictures of what they deal with everyday, so i figured i would join the club and be a cool kid too.

I will also make a quick introduction about me...

I work in Lubbock, Texas running a Central Mix Concrete Plant. I do enjoy my job, somedays it is very hectic and the plant can become a nitemare very quickly. Other days everything run's smooth as butter and thats always a good feeling. I am often doubted in my abilities due to my age, and am oftened questioned and often tested. Being that i do have the postion i have now, i feel that i have proven my self. But hey, some people always blame "the kid" im sure many of you know how it is. I LOVE operating heavy equipment, if i weren't running the plant, i would love to be on a machine somewhere doing something productive!
If anybody has any questions, im not a bashful person. If you feel its to personal of a question, shoot me a pm, but all questions are welcome. Ill answer anything i can to the best of my abilities. I dont pretend to be an expert and i dont claim to know everything, i will however share what knowledge i do have. I do not get irritated easily, i am very laid back. But in fair warning, if you care to question my abilities, or my knowledge. I will become aggitated, if you believe i am wrong in something ask me about it, but bring facts to back your case! Um... Thats about it.... So, on to the pictures!

Full view of the plant



View from infront of the aggregate bins, we use a CAT 966 loader to feed the plant.



View from under the agg belts, shows the top agg bins and the agg scale on the bottom.
