Equipment Breakdown

Day 3 of the work being done on Dad's house didn't go as planned. By late morning the front end loader blew a hydraulic fitting.
Looking close under the front end loader is a pan catching the hydraulic fluid.
That didn't stop the crew. The operator of the front end loader continued with working in the trench and sweeping up the driveway, the operator of the excavator moved into the basement where he started getting the beams ready for installation. 

The small beams are temporary and used as a backer for the jacks that will push the larger beams. When the wall is moved back verticle, the large beams will be permanently installed. The smaller beams will be removed. 

Meanwhile, Les uses a grinder to put the finishing touches on the patches that he made to the cracks in the other walls. 

Until next time, be safe and God Bless.
