Out of all the masons I've come across in 14 years, I've only seen one that did that. Once you see it done, it just seems like it should be common sense for all masonsfjn said:That would never happen on any of my job sites. Winter and summer I always place my mixers on three 12" concrete blocks. One under each wheel,one under the tongue base,reasons being,it makes discharging into wheelbarrows easier. Does make loading a tad harder though,usually make a platform on non dumping side to aid loading.
By the way,I place two short 2"x 4"s in core holes of blocks under wheels to act as chocks.
I don't put blocks under the tires, I put them under the axle. Sometimes it is good to remove the wheels and put plastic bags over the wheel assemblies.
Crib it up with 2x4 drops, a stone, bricks etc,etc. You're welcome :thumbsup:Oh Dirty Joe...will you ever learn?
I'm 50/50 with putting it up on blocks.My wheel barrow fits under easy enough if it's tipped a bit. A tiger torch and a 6' bar usually free it up from it's icy tomb. Also if there are no blocks on site, I'm not going to haul some in just to lift the mixer
If they drive them on the highway I suppose. There was talk about fixing break lights to the back of the mixerWow ! That is brutal. Does that mean a farmer needs plates on his combine,or hay rake or grain head ?
Because I had it hooked to the truck and had it under some pressure to assist in popping it loose, but it was frozen in pretty deep. This was early in the removal process. I figured get some pressure on it, chip a bit and it will pop loose. Well it didnt. So later we removed the chain chipped out the whole front end with tongue and put the chain back on. Next time I'll video the whole thing for you:laughing:I couldnt watch the whole thing. Why couldnt someone move that chain?
I could see brake lights if the mixer obstructed the trucks lights, but come on....bunch of fascistsIf they drive them on the highway I suppose. There was talk about fixing break lights to the back of the mixer
People have had their mixers towed even.
Making it in massachusetts and all...
