    What's some of your uses for concrete?

    I find hiding the bodies in it works real well.................................

    Ever heard of a concrete boat? Actually they are called ferral cement. They exsist and they work very well... Then there are concrete loafers. For those you love the least. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Well I've always been fond of 10 yard drum shaped planters.

    That's what they did with my drum after the wreck.

    I have several 3" dia. 10" tall paper weights. Those are cool I guess.

    boy all this concrete talk brings back memories..

    i used to restore mixers, barrel changes, etc... always an interesting day when you had to recover one out of a basement.. the big question always was, "how olds the barrel?" if it was old and worn you didn't sweat it much, but if it was fresh, you better find a way to get that crete out!

    they had me jackhammer 7 yards out of a barrel when i first started there. worst job in the world, told em they couldn't pay me enough to do that again...

    Concrete is a very good birth control device.
    Just pour it in..... It forms an impeneratable barrier.

    Being the junk collector I am, I always wind up taking people's old broken up concrete chunks from old driveways or sidewalks.

    I make campfire pits out of them, filled in holes, used them for blocking, and still have a bunch of pieces laying around here and there that often get grabbed and used for wheel chalks.

    When I got into my new (to me) truck last year, I had to spend two days chipping out the drum. Wish I had some pics of that.
    That was all kinds of fun. Luckly for us it was cloudy and raining those two days, otherwise I don't think I could have stood the heat inside that drum. I guess OSHA requires two guys inside at all times and one of you better have the keys to the truck!
    We didn't pull the access ports, we just climed in and out the end of the drum, the first time I climed out I slipped and went down the cutes right into the pile of concrete from the last truck cleaning out.
    All told I think we pulled about two yards out of that drum, but a couple months later I rolled the truck and wasted my nice clean drum. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

    I'd do it again, as long as it isn't too bad.

    hehe, it's rare that i run into someone else who's been inside a mixer barrel /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    that 7 yd gig sucked because you have to wear every protective item, double ear plugs, etc and when ya started there wasn't much room. just crouched, running the 90 lber... and yes, it was like 90 out in the summer /forums/images/graemlins/frown.gif

    speaking of, we had a guy that would climb in the barrels of the trucks being restoed in our shop on saturday and snooze... so the one day i come in and asked where he was, and got the nod he was in the barrel. couple good raps with a BMF ballpeen had him scramblin out in a hurry... /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    dangerous place tho, nearly got killed there a couple times. we had a guy die while i worked there (fell in the rockcrusher at the quarry, yuck!). and had another lose his arm in the back of a barrel..

    Yeah, you have to be carefull in the drum, those fins get razor sharp!
    I know I cut myself up good a few times in there. If I wasn't wearing steel toe boots I would have broken my toes a few times too. Working at about hip level with the hammer but the vibration would cause a chunk to fall from the top. /forums/images/graemlins/yikes.gif
    Smashed my boots a few times, cut the air line like that twice and the power cord to the light once.

    Where I worked there was one guy who would help with all the drums, but the driver was always the other guy in there.
    I didn't have a passenger seat so I had the floor set up over there so I could snooze. Worked well when we had long waits at the plant for late pours.

    Speaking of guys getting killed at work, we had a couple prior to my starting there that got killed in roll overs. The bridgemaster on the rear of a couple trucks had it's stabilizers go bad and throw the truck in a turn and threw the drivers out of the truck.

    what kind of trucks do you guys run?

    i used to do full sheetmetal replacements on Autocars and Macks. the Macks sucked, real pain the ass, rotboxs with a billion spotwelds.. but then again thats 20 yr ago...

    i always cringe when i see the newer front-pours. they kinda look silly to an oldschooler like me, i'm used to the standard rear-pours. tho i bet the fronts are a much better design and easier to operate..

    We have a fleet of around 25 Sterlings (Fords) L-line 111 inch BBC rigs.
    The bodies are built by Kimble. KMC
    We have 1 Mack Granite in fleet now, and there are 11 trucks on order right now, not sure if thery are the Macks or Sterlings, most likely Sterlings though.
    I've run the McNeilus front discharge trucks before, didn't like it one bit.
    I'd rather stick with the rear discharge units, takes more skill to run and they haul better too.

    This is my old mixer before I rolled it.
