    Other shops I worked in, had messes like this. To me a handful 50 cent o-ring and two hours of down a week of R&M is money well spent....

    Rather do that than have an yearly line-item in the budget for floor-dry.

    In my mind there is no excuse for these kind of leaks, taped over switches and operational features that no one uses because they are too stupid to read the manual. If you are going to invest $50,000 into a new machine... $150 bucks worth of grease, electrical work and o-rings a year go a long way to keeping your investment operational.

    And it is why OSHA has a reason to exist....

        Plenty of muck on the floor to rake and plenty of mud to sling if it comes down to it.

            There are times when ya'll take things too seriously on here.

            But then again the same thing happens at the counter at my favorite diner.

              One way to deal with oil stains on the floor is to prestain the floor with oil.
