R22 is now $550/30lbs wholesale

Are you sure on that price? I have 3 30lbs jugs for sale.

Almost none.  I did get some of a new chemical on me when I removed the seal on a jug.  Didn't even see any on my hand, but with my sweating, I wiped my sweat and got it in my eye.  Burnt like fire, and had to rinse it a few times.  

Do the sprayers carry eye wash bottles if something like that happened out in the field?  (Just thinking of the upcoming inspection you mentioned)

Well, good question on the bottles. I don't think they do, but should have. But I should have had rubber gloves on, so my mistake.

Another tough day underneath & all around trucks.  Greased everything with a zerk, topped off transmissions & diffs with gear lube, changed engine oil in some, filters, and topped off coolants, brake fluid, power steering fluid, and more.  Some had wiring issues.  Also did a 2 ton flatbed, and one coupe spray rig.  There were 3 of us in the shop most of the day, and a 4th guy, Nathan gave the spreader & tender trucks a good washing.  Getting there.  We still have a 1 ton flatbed, one spray coupe, and another 2 ton spray nurse truck to go.  Heat index has been over 100 all week.  Yesterday was 106 index.   Really taking all I have this week and then some.  But I still love my job!

Yep. The replacement MO99 is $150/25lbs. MO99 can not be dropped in on top of 22. The 22 has to be removed.

It's very hot Daniel, I am welding all week and it's over a hundred and I'm up in the top of the 40' tall metal building about 8' from the top.

 

Your going to have to wipe the sweat off your camera lens before take any photos.

I had 10 hrs yesterday, would go up and weld til I got feeling light headed and come back down to cool off and drink water. Then go back up and repeat all day long. Finished at 6pm last night, just hanging out in the office and staying cool today.

On way home from David's (Thefarm2004) in southern Indiana with a Snapper 1850A. I'll post a few pics after I get home. And no Craig, you can't have the toolbox tray! Gave you that pto shaft a while back thinking I'd never need it, and now I need it!! Oh well, you got yours fixed though.
