Yep there wasn’t much standing around and no beer tops popping off. I’m a desk jockey and I’m always amazed at what happens when you crank these farmers up. Honestly if we had to take those down at work there would be a month of planning, 2 months of design work, then safety would get involved and tell us it’s a confined space and we need an access tunnel from below and tell us to start over. When the plan finally came together the union would tell the guys only 10 bolts per hour then you have to take a break. To get the project done we would have to authorize overtime payments after a few weeks. And come in costing 3 times what a new one would cost.
We sent the girls to town to get (105) 4 ½” cut off disks an air hammer, gas for the compressor and 4 large pizzas. I don’t think we used over 40 of those disks but should have made it 6 large pizzas.
The old farmer selling them came over and told me we should take those concrete pad also, laughing. I told him I was thinking about it as I don’t want to build the forms to pour new ones. To get the auger and Heater/ blower to work right I guess the base should be about 18” above grade. That looks like a lot of concrete to me.
