    Yeah they do, but it's funny as hell to watch them. Just have the apprentice sit in the truck with the video camera.
    The Lord must love stupid people or he wouldn't have made so many.

    Why is it that when I am in a hurry, everyone else on the road goes 15 MPH under the speed limit?

    would have been a big mess if that compressor fell over and put a nice hole in that roof

    Hey, atleast thats heavy. The lazy fools who leave contactors and smaller items are the roof are... (add your comment here) They they give you the responce.. I left it so someone else knows what was changed. Sorry but thats a lame excuse.

    Rope it up, Rope it down, allways make sure clear down below, and Never toss anything off the roof! As for oil as a young tough guy many moons ago I picked up a compressor and got most of the oil charge below the belt. Being 120 miles from a clean change of clothes,walking around looking like you peed yourself in oily drawers is not a fun day.

    By the way, the pressures shown in the first picture, did the comp. replacement "tech" get enough scale in the system to stop up the dryer or ruin the txv.?

    Too cool...right into an empty dumpster...they'll be hittin' the deck for 3 blocks
    (The wise men of modern thought) adore a god made of putty or of wax - plastic, effeminate, molluscous, with no masculine faculty about him, and no quality that entitles him to the respect of just and honest men, for a being who cannot be angry at wrongdoing is destitute of one of the essential virtues, and a moral Ruler who is not angry with the wicked, and who refuses to punish crime, is not divine. ---Spurgeon

    One time I was in the process of taking down a trane comp off a roof and I seen a scrap guy I knew in the drive thru. So I threw it into the back of his dump truck. He got out and looked and sure as sh*t there was me waving at him. He was laughing and said thanks. Couldn't of been better then that
