  • Roof Top Unit

    So today I had to help my buddy do a roof top unit, and I like these jobs cause it's a change of pace for me. This is the second crane lift I did with him, as we simply don't get involved with big commercial stuff like this.

    When we pulled up to the job this morning at 6:30am, there was a Tractor Trailer waiting in the parking lot for us with the Unit on top. But we only worked a few hours, because Trane didn't send the curb adaptor that goes with this unit, so we couldn't finish the job today. My buddy didn't know that Trane doesn't send the curb adaptor at the same time as the roof top unit, so we have to bring the crane back out next week to finish the job.

    In the one picture here, we thought we were pulling the entire duct in the building, when the roof top unit was coming off....scared the crap out of us.

    Btw..my buddy got busted by the inspector this morning for not registering! lol

      we did a crane lift the other day and the crane they used could have a boom length of 195 ft we used 165 ft this day . it was a new crane and the operator and i were talking about how the boom bends so much ,he said with this crane being newer and lighter the boom flexes a lot .
      he said he hates taking old units off with it because when the unit sticks and then lets loose it could spring the end of the boom and unit 15 ft

        Man that Unit puts ours to shame Charlie.

        If it wasn't for my buddy, I wouldn't so much as sniff a commercial roof top unit, as I don't really know too much about them.
