    "truck driver headed back to Quebec"

    Where was the unit shipped from? Montreal? I know there is a Trane office near here, on Pitfield blvd. That would have been interesting.

    No the unit was made in Tennesee. Trane hired an independent trucker to bring the unit up. He was a nice guy. He even jumped in there and gave us a hand with the rigging.

    He lives inbetween Montreal and the border. Not bad he'll be home for Christmas.

    MENTORING IN PROCESS

    Now this is what I call showing your son HOW to run a business when you are showing him the ropes and letting him take over the business.

    Nice job Benny.

    I appreciate you saying that. Rich is the "man" on this job and he does my heart proud with his performance.

    LMAO. Man, don't you think that I'm not fighting the temptation to send an email of the picture of this unit to my EX-Carrier distributor.

    Are units that big custom made or is this a standard size unit?

    My dad is an owner operator. He hasn't worked since the last time he "gave a hand with the rigging." Actualy, he only gave the tip of his thumb! Being an independent, he doesn't have workers comp, so he hasn't had a payday since September. Also bad, his health insurance only covered $4000 of the $7900 helicopter ride. I don't know why they life flighted him for a finger amputation.

    The lesson, Let the crane company people handle the lift. If they didn't send enough men, have them send more. Don't give a hand, or part of a hand.



    Oh yeah, Thats one HUGE machine. I hope you cut the holes in the right place!
