  • Milk truck vrs Shop Vac

    The other day we did a job at a farm.
    I had to take the shop vac out to get to my snake. Knowing I'd have to take it back out again when i put the snake back I decided to leave it on the side of the van. Its a rule of mine NOT to do this as this is how things get lost/broken "but we're at a farm what's going to happen"?

    1/2hr later the milk truck (18 wheeler) shows up for a pick up. So my wife moves the van. She saw the vac was off to the side and figured "what's going to happen"?

    A while pases and we go outside to see my poor little Ridgid vac taking her last breath.
    Farmer says "yeah the milk driver ran over your vac. He said he saw it but forgot all about it when he was making his swing. He said to bill the company. I'll get you the info when you come to the office.

    I decided not to bother. I know what trucking companies can be like and I'd hate to see a man lose his job over a $20 part. And besides we are just as much at fault.

    The top (motor) is fine, nothing broke. The cord got pulled out a bit, but thats it. The canister...well.. the canaster has seen better days.


    Interesting addition: they had an old silo built with clay tile.
