Shiny

Thursday, September 10, 2015

Brandon has been working on the Peterbilt truck and trailer for a few days.  He has been polishing it up, and it’s looking good!  Even the hoppers are shining!  With the Pete pulled out into the sun this morning, you need sunglasses to look the truck over.  It’s now ready for a busy fall harvest– not only bringing the corn and soybeans in to the farm, but also delivering the grain to market all fall and winter.  The Pete will get washed as needed over the next few months, but a full-blown polish job like this happens once every couple years!

He was very precise in polishing all surfaces. The aluminum sparkles now.

Now out in the sun, the Pete looks like new, maybe even better

This is the way we like our equipment to look

Our dad always told us, “Take good care of your equipment, and it’ll take care of you.”

#Harvest15 comes Monday, weather permitting.  The forecast is favorable.
