  • "Pro" riggers

    This machine recently sold this past week at auction. Looks like a stout machine, and reminds me of the fixed head Tree mills, though this is not a fixed head. Anyone experienced with them? I didn't get to inspect it closely, but I did see it leaving as I was pulling into the shop and snapped a couple pics.

    The rigger wrapped the controller but did not bother to cover the machine. It was a nice winter day, and there was plenty of very salty water on the roads to spray the machine. I'm not sure what they were thinking in not covering it.

    It is a good reminder to always cover machines being moved, even if it is dry and in the summer. Never know when an unexpected puddle will appear, and if someone else is driving they may just cruise right into it.

    Or around here you might drive by a cattle truck just as a cow lets fly!
