    LOL..Air ride cab and A/C..We have 4 of these.[2 smaller].these trucks we use for road work. Hydraulic and mechanical repairs, welding etc on aerial and construction equipment. Take care of a 450+ fleet, Our territory is 200 miles long so lots of seat time. Also used to pull trailers with trenchers/excavators etc.

      Nice rig HMW, whose body did you go with? Doesn't look like an IMT from what little I can see. Reading? Looks alot like what I just got custom made from wilcox.

        skid unit

        i phoned that company that LYNX had posted earlier in the thread, 10000 for a base unit, and 15000 for all the bells and whistles. i reallly like the setup and the conveniences of the skid.. but that is a lot of money for a skid.

                Congratulations on the little one!! I have two boys that are teenagers now and I often wish they were still small children. LOL

                The job by Gordondale sounds like a real pain. Which oil company was it for? Spectra maybe?? What did they attribute all of the initial failures to? Just wondering?

                    Thanks for the reply!! I figured it maybe had something to do with a Spectra site because they have a bunch of stuff north of Gordondale, they were formerly Duke Energy.

                    It sure does make one wonder when you hear of line blowouts and they find the seams weren't turned. It has always been my understanding that the XRay hands could see the seams and call cutouts if they were so obviously out. I was helping on an 8" pipeline, near Grande Prairie for Peace Pipe, in '89 and the first seven or eight welds were cut outs because the seams weren't turned. The spread was some choked about that one After that they made sure the seam turner knew what he was doing.

                    The only contractor that I am familiar with from Athabasca is Lincoln County, not familiar wiith one starting with R. But so many companies popped up in the last three years who can keep track anymore? The initial contractor must be in hot water over the pipeline failures...

                      Sorry for the hijack but when they turn the seams how far apart do they turn them 90deg, 180 or somewhere in between? I've never welded any pipe before (I'm not certified to do it either) but I always like to learn more about the different areas of the trade.
                      Thanks in advance.

                        when you pipeline they roll the seems to sit at 10 and 2 o clock so that the seems are not alighned and so that if ther is a line blow whatever is in the line desperses up and not down becasue they could have a line blow that is going deeper into the ground and they wouldn't know it

                          It makes perfect sense when you explain it like that! I guess today is not lost, I learned something new! Thanks
