Default Mogmans Projects

Though with other members keeping all there work and projects threads in one thread I would do the same

So looked at a job taking out two old cement powered tanks that had been used as water tanks in a tank wash bay
P1000536.jpg
P1000538.jpg

Only problem was they was put in before the roof was installed so the first one had a 4" of clearance but the other one.............well the diagonal roof brace was resting on a pipe fitting welded to the end of the tank

and just to make it interesting there is a steel cable that runs the length of the building so the guys washing the road tankers can clip on the harnesses which could not be removed or tampered with as it is a safety feature with a sensor at one end

So me and my brother went on Saturday afternoon got the first one out in about an hour
P1000553.jpg

But the second one was a bit slower had to wrap a couple of chains around the tank and onto the grab on the machine (pulled tight with load binders)
P1000556.jpg
P1000557.jpg
We then attached the telehandler to the bottom of the tank with a chain and pulled the bottom out while steering the top with the duck

Then all was left to do was stick it on the trailer

To be honest it looks a bit lost on the trailer but when it was stuck up in the building...........it looked big but only about 30'

just easier to take out in one, they are aluminium so on site cutting would of been an arse

Plus we had to do it a bit quick as we had to shut the wash down for half a day

Cement powder tanks had the lot steel alli everything gave the guy 500 but made a bit for a Saturday afternoon

As for the boat job waiting for his men to relive it of some weight/wood so it can be floated into the dock

Here is a video of some of the work we did, bit long winded as I don't know how to edit but..............

I did spend a lot of time on top and behind the tank preparing for the 'big lift' but here goes

Make sure your camera is charged, and put in a good location for some good footage
