    some randoms, been jamming with the generator delivery, pads and placement work lately, the crane job was a cummins generator I had to have lowered into an underground vault very interesting rigging to get it back horizontal once we got it below grade and into the vault. We had a 1\2" of clearance on all sides of the entry point and had to rig up a haul system and cribbing stack to reset it horizontal with no anchor points in the vault.

    Glad to see another company from CT doing well, I hope I can do something a little similar. I did a few generators run for a company up North from you in CT during Hurricane Sandy.

    I did some generator runs for my old bosses brother down to New Jersey during Hurricane Sandy - it's all fun and games until the DOT cop pulls you over, weighs the truck and trailer and finds out your overweight and into CDL territory haha lets just say it took alot of smoozing and ass kissing to get off with a warning and finish the run.

    Not only bigger guys but I got stopped with a 3/4 ton and a single axle trailer. He said he thought my light was out(it wasnt) and inspected the whole rig. Had my kubota on there which just barely makes it weight wise and he wanted to fine me for not enough point of tie downs. You need 4 so I though 2 going across was fine, they want 4 independant I guess. Hope you dont have any run ins with them,it really sucks
