This sucks. I might have to lay off one of my guys because I lost a contract. I had approximately 40 hours a week in D8 sized dozer work every week guaranteed and I had a guy on full time doing that. I had a dozer catch fire and it wasn't even a very large fire and now they're telling me that I'm unsafe and terminated my contract. The fire melted the insulation off some wires, but didn't even get hot enough to melt hydraulic hoses. I replaced the wires and had the machine operational after an inspection the same day. I've seen identical dozers burn TO THE GROUND. Melted every hydraulic hose off, the fluid sprayed out and caught and almost lit the building on fire. That contractor was kept on and had his contract renewed. Their guy backed his loader into my dozer because he didn't look when he backed up. He hit the side of the blade and spun the dozer 180 degrees around and I'm the unsafe one. Sorry about the rant. It just irritates the hell out of me when I might have to lay off a good guy who has been married under a year because of Bull Sh*t company politics.
