This morning I spent three hours working on cleaning an excavator. Yes it’s a dirty job, but someone has to do it. This 325 Cat looks monstrous when it’s inside the shop. In reality it isn’t all that big.
First things first. What can be removed from the tracks with a space must be removed. Why add to what’s already going to be a big ‘ol muddy mess if you don’t have to?
Did I get done washing? Nope. I was called away to run the dump truck. Much of the month of December was spent washing equipment and jumping in the dump truck as needed. I was very fortunate to be able to stay rather busy right up until the week before Christmas when things dropped off. Working in the wash bay as a driver is certainly not a glamorous job. However, washing equipment most definitely pays the bills at the house and for that I am very grateful. -QBall45
