How's the workload Billy?
« on: April 30, 2017, 05:09:30 PM »
Got my carbs pulled and wondering how things are looking on your end. I know you've had your hands full with things outside of carbs over the past few months, so how's the backlog?

I can get them through another season if need be, but they're in bad need of a Billy Rebuild.

Been running 10 day turnaround. Power being out makes the future a mystery. 3 substations damaged. No estimates on when rejoin the 21st Century.

Time to get some hamsters, some wheels, and a few alternators  :rolling:

Post here when you get your power back and I'll send the rack out to you  :thumb

We are the road getting the kid. Those big high tension towers, saw 5 of them wadded up like alimum foil. I don't see them just throwinv up new ones any time soon. Might be shopping for a generator soon.

Same thing happened to us in 2011 with the tornado outbreak. All 7 trunks got severed.

We were without power 1 hour shy of 7 days.

They're pulled and drained. They'll be headed your way this week Billy.

They're long oooonnngg overdue for the Carr touch on them. I wanted to send them to you 2-3 years ago, but too many other things kept taking my carb money out of the budget.
