today was brutal.
i'm not normally one to be affected by the heat but...
5 minutes working, 10 minutes sitting the shade with a big fan blowing hard on me, guzzling cold water.
lather, rinse, repeat, for about 2 hours.
i'm guessing the air quality reports were accurate for today, as they said it SUCKED.

I usually spend from the morning to around noon in the field and do some running around/office work in the afternoons but today I was in the pool by 12:30

We used to go to Wildwood Crest, a little more family friendly down there. Have not been there in years since the kid got older, but even then, the hotels were really getting run down.

I'll be down the shore this weekend & can't wait I might be the only one on here who doesn't want the rain this afternoon cause the faster I can get my route down this week the faster I can go

Anyone have an idea why my dump trailer won't lift a heavy load anymore. The hoist motor runs, fluid level is good, I purged the fluid to make sure it wasn't air or junk in the lines, still no difference, battery is fine, connections are good. I spent most of Friday afternoon messing around with it, then today I picked up 3 yards of topsoil and my guys have to shovel half the load out

There was no visible fluid around the seal when I checked on Friday. Maybe after today's attempt there will be I'll check it again in the morning

I was referring to the inner piston seal/orings which is not visible.
You should be able to put a pressure gauge on the cylinder to see if you have blow by, kind of like checking compression in a motor.
